Have you got started on your New Year’s resolutions yet?
You know the list is usually the same every year for most folks. To the gym, diet, no gossiping, budget better.
For me, it’s less sugar and alcohol. It’s been 5 days already and I’m feeling great! (I was being facetious right there!)
But have you noticed that we often start off these self improvement projects with great enthusiasm and that enthusiasm dwindles as daily life takes over and so do our habitual reactions to stress, coupled with the real hard work of substantive change sets in?
Maybe it’s because we set ourselves up to fail by announcing these sweeping changes without getting ourselves ready, really ready, in this very moment.
