As we go into every new year I see articles, blog posts, and now tweets about “new year’s resolutions”.
I’m here to tell you I am an anti-resolution fanatic!
It isn’t that I don’t like new year’s resolutions I HATE them. Based on my coaching experiences over the past 10+ years, I now believe that:
New Year’s Resolutions = Permission To Fail
Yup, I’m not kidding. I believe that people have now heard all of the statistics about what % of people give up (for goodness sakes the Seattle Times JUST quoted 75% in an article and a post on Hellum says 30% in the first week alone) and then use them as excuses to quit themself.
What I do believe in is well thought out goals – you know the dreams you desire enough to create a plan to achieve for yourself. So while everyone else is making resolutions – I urge you to create a 2011 Plan for yourself.
Wishing You A Profitable New Year,
