Here’s why you’ve been failing your “New Year’s Resolution”

Time is too precious to miss out on what you want in life. You need a better strategy.

Now that you heard how the conversation went, let’s see how both versions compare with each other.

“New Year’s Resolution” is unrealistic and non-strategic. You need to set SMART goals. It’ll hold you accountable and helps you increase the chances of achieving the life you want.

Here are 5 simple questions (I asked myself).

My 2020 NYR:

“I’m going to start being healthier this year.”

With all of the 5 questions answered, here’s the SMART goal version of my NYR:

“I am going to workout 6x a week and commit to a diet plan to decrease my body fat % and gain muscle mass by the end of June, so that I can be in the best shape possible to live a healthier life overall.”

Listen. I need you to remember one thing.

Your goals are yours. Take ownership of them and adjust as needed. At the end of the day, your life’s journey is up to you.
