Your New Year’s Resolutions Are Already Broken

Because you don’t know how to set goals effectively… yet.

How many times have you set your “resolutions” only to give up on them mid-January?

I remember last January I thought it would be fun to discuss our yearly goals as a Family at the dinner table once a week. The first week everyone gave some great responses — not drinking soda, no social media, eating healthier.

The only pattern you need to reach your goals

You stopped working on them.

You may be excellent at setting SMART goals. Stretching yourself and everything. But when it really comes down to it, there is only ONE principle that will beat out everything else when it comes to actually reaching them.


The only real way to fail is to stop trying and give up completely. You need to do everything in your power to set goals and make plans to accomplish them in a way that guarantees that you will not give up.

So what can you and I do to ensure that we will maintain consistency?

Plan on spending a small enough time working on your goals each day that you can be consistent at it for an entire year.
