Alright, so we got simple. We got measurable. How else can we set ourselves up for success in 2018?
Here’s another consideration for creating your own Post-Normal Resolution: Make it a habit, not a goal.
“Whatchutalkingabout, Jon?” you ask.
Here are some goal-based resolutions: Lose weight. Fit into a bikini by spring. Win a 5K. Find a buried treasure chest.
Here are some habit-based resolutions: Not eat after 6p. Drink a 30g protein shake for breakfast. Run 1 mile, 3 times a week. Dig a hole in a random yard each Sunday morning.
See the difference? With a habit-based resolution, you are not setting yourself up for potential failure by chasing an outcome. Instead you pick a habit with a positive eventual outcome and you stick to it.
I won’t promise you’ll find that buried treasure, but the other habit-based resolutions will put you on a path to success. Plus they’re simple. And, cunningly enough, they’re measurable! See how I did that? Is that clever, or what?
