New Year's Resolution Revolution

New Year's Resolution Revolution

New Year’s is a time when folks take on grand changes with designs, more often than not, at making permanent and positive alterations to their lives. I have heard friends, family, and clients pledge to do things as drastic as move to a new continent. I have read several folks’ extensive resolution lists, sometimes 20 items deep, covering the gamut of severity and scale.  Resolutions to change thought patterns, habits, relationships, and interpersonal dynamics abound, with these being the hardest to actually achieve, yet are the most commonly resolved changes of all.

As a Renegade Certified coach at Hordon Health, I am in the business of finding weakness in order to improve the lives of my clients. As such, I feel the desire to offer help with people’s New Year’s promises. What are these resolutions, really, other than the action of recognizing deficiency and addressing that deficiency?   

Now that we’ve had a couple weeks to shake off our holiday hangovers, and get down to the business of living this new year, I would ask your patience and open mindedness, because I’m going to offer some advice. Now, this is advice I am giving myself as well. I plan on heeding my own call to action, so I’ll be going through it with you. In a few months, I’ll give a check in as to my, and hopefully all of our, collective progress towards our resolution.

Rather than struggling to get our arms, and minds, around some grand resolution like “stop smoking” or “be a better person”, let’s focus on something very small. Something that will take less than five minutes a day, but will have huge, sometimes unseen, or seemingly unrelated, benefits.  A repetitive, physical, easily trackable (with regards to progress) habit.

You may be aware of the widely held belief that it takes 21 straight days of doing something to turn it into habit. If we collectively subscribe to this notion, it will take us until, approximately, the middle of February to ingrain this small change as habit, greatly increasing the likelihood of us continuing it through to 2013, and, ideally, the rest of our lives.

Alright, are you ready?

Check back in a few days, as we will discover this very specific, easily attainable and trackable change.
