We’re four days into the new year and maybe some of you feel bad because you broke one or all of your daily resolutions. Before punting on 2022, why not take a different approach? Take the pressure off. Call January your “test drive month.” Just like you wouldn’t buy a new car before taking it for a test drive, do the same for your resolutions. See which ones realistically work for you in terms of schedule and commitments and energy. And which ones don’t. That way you don’t feel bad if you miss a day or two here and there. No biggie. You’re experimenting. You’re iterating. Then at the end of the month, decide which ones go and which ones stay.
Even if you only end up keeping one resolution this year, it’s still a HUGE accomplishment.
And the others?…Put them on a “no for right now list.” You can always revisit in 2023.
