Happy New Years!
Welcome to 2018! This New Year’s Eve I have run into so many people that were either hesitant or against making resolutions. It was hard to listen to everyone’s compliancy in the matter of attempting goals and falling short of them. I guess we all cannot be like Mark Zuckerberg when it comes to the annual goal setting. It was harder for me to see all the past lists of resolutions I made and how oddly familiar each list was. No progress. Last year I thought I cracked the puzzle of achieving my goals. I arranged my year like a publicly traded company would, every 3 months would establish a quarter. And each quarter would be one of my four audacious goals I had set on New Year’s Eve. I failed miserably. What was once thought of as a stroke of genius quickly showed its flaws. I spent 3 months in isolation trying to achieve my first goal and when I failed at achieving it I lost all motivation. That failure crescendo through letting go of the original goal and completely dropping the business quarterly system. As of 2018 I am jumping back into these goals with the same vigor and optimism I had last year. Instead I am focusing on establishing habits that can be the leading dominoes which will help power through any goal or project that I place upon me. Daily Morning Journaling and Decisive Decision Making. I am excited to start the new year with these simple but strong objectives and hopefully throughout the year and especially at this year’s end I will be speaking the praises of having these habits in my life.
