New Year’s Resolutions

The new year is here and resolutions abound. Everyone has a list of things they resolve to do in 2013. Some common new year’s resolutions include losing weight, be a better person, to get out of debt, go back to school, eat healthy, pray more, fast, go to church more often, be punctual, and have stronger relationships with family and friends. That is all wonderful, but just how many of the 2012 resolutions did you accomplish in 2012. Could it be that you were overwhelmed by your list of resolutions and therefore ran out of enthusiasm and inspiration after a few weeks? So here is an idea.

Instead of making a list of resolutions, why not just have one resolution that if you focus on it you will accomplish many other things along the way. Let’s say your one resolution is to eat healthy in 2013. Then that will cause you to lose weight, save money, have more energy, be more fulfilled and so on. Why not try one resolution for the first 100 days and do an evaluation like the President usually does.

Last year I had a list of resolutions under different categories and needless to say, I would have had better results had I just focused on one. So, try the one resolution for now and see how it goes. That’s just an idea. More on new year’s resolutions in next post. If you have others, please comment right here.
