Maybe you didn’t set them on the 31st or the 1st or the 2nd, but come the 3rd, you’re wondering if you should do them.

In theory a resolution makes sense – “I resolve to do better at X” or “I resolve to not do Y anymore” – or whatever other variants lie in between.

What we fail to miss, is that resolutions are like streaks and creating a new habit – the more you show up, the easier it is to accomplish – BUT, you don’t do it all at once.

If I wanted to climb a mountain, I wouldn’t wake up the next morning and go mountain climbing – I’d set a date, read, learn, train, workout, buy equipment – the actual climbing part might not happen for another 11 months when weather conditions are that much more favorable.

Whatever the reason you have for a resolution, make sure it’s well laid out, measurable and insulates your success so you can go longer than 30 days.
