Why New Year’s plans often fail

Every January, millions of people make promises to themselves in New Year’s Resolutions.

  • “This is the year I finally get in shape!”
  • “This is the year I lose the weight!”
  • “This is the year I start my business!”

And then by every February, the vast majority have failed already. Let’s talk about why.

If we discuss a few common reasons why well-intentioned resolutions fail so often, then maybe we can find a better way to reach the desired end.

  1. They’re too vague. Instead of saying, “I want to get in shape,” say you’re going to spend 15 minutes walking around the neighborhood twice a week. (Don’t worry – it will lead to more.)
  2. Don’t be so demanding of yourself. Realize that the best change is gradual.
  3. Choose to do something positive that you enjoy, and then you won’t have to force yourself to do it every day.
  4. You don’t track your progress. If you want to eat better, download an app to record what you eat every day. If you want to slim down, take a photo of yourself each week to see that you really are making progress despite how you might feel.
  5. You don’t know your “why.” If you don’t have a profound, compelling reason for doing what you’re doing, it’s bound to fail.

The key is to examine your desire a little more deeply and then take small, bite-sized actions each day to get started.

As they say, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”, and is followed by another and another.
