The most common New Year’s resolutions deal with health & fitness, money, career, relationships, and travel.
Sorry to be blunt, but if you’re not making steady progress at your top resolution right now — September 6th — you haven’t set up systems to maintain ongoing accountability, and chances are you’ll fail again in January.
On the other hand, if you’re systematically working towards a specific goal you set, the world is your oyster. What’s the next challenge I can set for myself? How can I top myself last time? Bring it on. These are the phrases of top performers I know.
The time to think about resolutions is not January 1st. It’s in the middle of the year, when nobody else is thinking about them.
