As we enter the last month of the year, in 2021 there is going to be a shift. A shift that will take place within the self, externally, in the people around you, your jobs, the society at large and so much more. With January 2022 approaching, there is going to be a lot of talk about resolutions. You will be bombarded with the question ‘What is your New Year’s resolution?’
What is this obsession with New Year’s resolutions?
Resolution refers to a firm decision. But, the value of a firm decision disintegrates by the end of the first month.
Mazing Focus would love to assist you in the process of making a New Year’s resolution. Let’s break it down and explain all the dos and don’ts of making resolutions.
Why do we wait for New Year’s to make a change?
Because we are creatures of procrastination. We love to push it for tomorrow. Every time you allow procrastination to win, you’re losing. You will keep losing until you embody procrastination. So, what is the solution?
The best time to begin is now!
Despite all that said, we all end up making New Year’s resolutions. But, when it is done on the last day of the year, it becomes meaningless. And, meaningless actions will not take you to the future.
We’re throwing this out here for you to start your work.
Take the first two weeks of December to plan. A bit of introspection is required. Look within and check out the areas that need work and that requires change. Write down your year’s plan.
- Put to action
With the idea clearly laid out, now plan the execution. How are you going to bring all this to action? How are you going to work out your plans? Create small step by step actions to ensure that you don’t get stuck along the way and find a reason to ditch it all and run to the hills.
- Take action
When it is time, make sure you see it through. Ensure that you check off the boxes every day for the rest of 2022 and not just the first week. It will be difficult and challenging but push through. Push forward and watch how it works wonders. Your actions will turn into a cosmic habit. And, once it is a habit there is no breaking away from it.
To provide you with more guidance, check out the areas listed down to give you a head start.
- Mental well-being,
- Physical well-being,
- Intellectual growth,
- Career development,
- Economic prosperity.
Start with this..,
- For your mental well-being, you can resort to meditation or positive journaling.
- For your physical well-being, you should focus on starting to take a run or start with small stretches.
- For your intellect, you can vow to read a page every day and learn something new.
- Career development – for this you will have to think ahead into the future. The results of this may be slow but it is a start.
- For your economic prosperity to have all the fancy things you desire find a way to have more than just one source of income.
Planning is a key element in ensuring that ideas get put into action. Work ahead of time and know that until extra thought is put into it, it is never getting done. Think, plan, execute.
You will see how we have balanced this out. We are looking at overall development and not just one area. Mazing Focus believes in holistic development. Work with us on this and let us know how it goes.
