The best way to take on any new year or new project for that matter, is to look at what parts of your life or task are lacking and work out what changes you can make to bring more to the table. Habits are the making or breaking of a person. Consistently embracing good and productive habits will get far better results than attempting major change in one go.
For resolutions to have the highest impact they need to have merit and value. Value to you is a given, but the best resolutions have further-reaching merits that serve others. For example if someone is trying to lose weight to fit into an outfit thats a couple of sizes smaller than they are now that is a good motivator. However, if someone is trying to lose weight to live longer to see the birth of their grandchild, be there to support someone they love, to run a marathon to raise money for charity – the greater the reach of value the more likely the resolution will be met.
Resolutions need to be catalysts for positive change. The brain doesn’t like hearing that it is going to lose something even if it is weight. It likes to hold on to things. Always frame your resolutions positively with far-reaching merits so you get long-lasting results.
