New Year’s Resolutions are the goals we set each January that so many of us tend to lose track of.  Lets face it, by February, for many of us, our resolutions have been filed away for next year already.

But why?  Resolutions are not impossible.  A little grand at times, but certainly attainable.

Process vs. Outcome

Resolutions are big goals.  They are the plans we make that are aimed at altering our lives. No one makes a New Year’s Resolution to go out to dinner next week.  We create these reolutions to highlight our dreams of who we want to be.

The problem?  Focusing too much on outcome and not enough on process.  Weight loss, organization, better relationships are all common resolutions.  But all of these require a series of goals, time and commitment.  Most of us shouldn’t lose 25 pounds in a month.  We can’t change our relationships in 3 days. Organization is a process not a one day event.  

If we shift our focus to the process of the goals that will get us there, we begin to see real change.  The process of losing weight is practicing eating better, exercising and commiting to personal wellness. Organization?  Easy.  Make small changes to address the organizational changes you want.  Want to see big change?  Keep your keys in the basket by the front door.  Practice it every day.  Discipline yourself.  Most Americans spend 30-45 minutes a day looking for keys.  A few minutes of discipline every day will buy you hours over the course of a year.  

Think process.  Work on the small steps you need to take to make your resolution happen.  Don’t worry about losing 30 pounds as much as getting 20 minutes of exercise a day.  Focus on the process, on developing the steps and skills that will get you to your goal and keep you there!

Have a great January and keep working on your goals!
