Trash the long list
While some doubt the validity of the data surrounding the existence of Blue Monday, there is no shortage of data, statistics, and research touting the failure of the New Year’s resolution. How sad - surely there is a way to parlay the eternal optimism of the New Year to make life better? The secret may actually reside in what has been left undone. Yes, that’s right, “forget about it” (or at least, some of it).
What to do?
Trash the long list.
Begin with realistic goals in just a few categories of your life.
Cut your resolutions down to a few “doable” daily changes.
Be honest: is this goal, habit, or objective truly essential to you?
Does just thinking of bringing this into your life make you smile and bring you joy? If not, get rid of it.
