With the beginning of a New Year, come New Year resolutions for many people Unfortunately, now that is is a couple of days into the New Year most people have already failed at keeping some of their resolutions.
-Why are resolutions so hard to achieve?
-Are we setting the wrong resolutions?
-Are we looking at it from completely wrong perspective?
I personally think most of us are taking the wrong perspective. In order for our resolutions to succeed I think they all have to have a very specific purpose. We have to look at our daily lives as a pie. Each thing that is important to us, are pieces of the pie. The longer we spend on something, the bigger the slice of the pie it takes, therefore shrinking the other slices of pie in our lives.
Instead of spending all of our time building random resolutions, I think we should instead spend time analyzing our pie.
-What slices are most important to us?
-Are we allocating the proper amount of time to each of these slices?
Obviously this isn't a perfect science, as life will always pull on us and make other slices get larger. But we need to actively make sure we are re-allocating our time to the things most important to us. This is the key to setting our resolutions. They should be aligned with creating the our "perfect" pie.
When our resolutions are focused like this we will be much more successful in achieving them. And by achieving them, we will create a happier lifestyle.
