‘One’ New Year Resolution

The challenge each year with New Year Resolutions is simply making it through the first month. What if we only focus on ‘One’ New Year Resolution and try and make it through the end? It can be anything, but be specific i.e. never, stop, quit, once a week, etc. Vague resolutions lead to vague boundaries which can make it easily broken. Just pick one and stick to it. Make it into a game. Tell someone close your New Year Resolution so they can keep tabs on your progress or turn it into a friendly wager. You should be able to do ‘One’ thing right? If you can make it through one year, most likely it will stick for the rest of your life and each year you will gain ‘One’ more.

Let’s break it down:

  1. ‘One’ New Year Resolution
  2. Be Specific
  3. Tell Someone
  4. Start Now
