No New Year’s Resolutions

New Year's ResolutionsIt’s that time of the year again. Holiday cheer, presents and carols. That time when we look back at at what we accomplished and recap. But even more so at what we failed to do and feel guilty for failing to

  • lose that weight
  • go to the gym
  • read (more)
  • learn that extra skill
  • give or receive more feedback
  • express gratitude

And yet somehow we think that if we write down a list and force ourselves to do it we will do it and stick to it. What’s the difference? I’ll start

  • on Monday
  • 1st of next month
  • January 1st

It never works, at least not for me. And believe me, I tried.

This year

I will take my time to recap, celebrate my successes, analyse my failures and let go. No resolutions, no homework.

How about you? Will you make resolutions this year? Leave your comments below.

  1. Nope, I haven’t been successful with this kind of resolutions either. Though I must admit I never really tried.

    What I will do differently this time is a result of something that I did differently in the beginning of this year. I started a “box of goodies” in which I collect small daily notes about good things that I go through. So this New Year’s Eve I will empty the box and go through all those notes. I’m curious what I’ll get out of it 🙂
