Happy New Year!
2024. Wow. I remember watching older movies when the year 2024 was a distant futuristic society. And now, here we are.
With a new year comes new resolutions.
But for some of us, picking new resolutions each year is a daunting task. Maybe you are one of these people who does not want to partake in this new year resolution tradition. Or maybe you have too many resolution ideas on your wishlist.
It can be overwhelming to figure out the one habit or goal that is the most important to you. Plus, there’s all those statistics about how only 9% of people actually stick with their goals, while the rest give up on their resolutions within a couple of months…
So here’s what I suggest: Instead of picking new year’s resolutions, pick a single theme that can be summed up with a word or phrase.
Think of it as a guiding phrase that shapes your daily interactions with yourself and others. It should be an intentional and comforting word that helps you make better decisions throughout the year.
Here are some examples: Inspiration, compassion, mindset, connections, shine, kind, confidence, influence, abundance, growth, love.
The word I’ve chosen for me this year is “optimizing.”
