The Best New Year’s Resolution of All Time!

There are probably more than 10,000 posts on resolutions for the New Year, but I wonder how many are like this one…

We all set up a “want/wish list” whether we think we do or not; after looking back at the last year we  have ideas of things we want to change, habits we want to break and goals we set for ourselves and our passions, causes, and businesses. They are all useful and serve their purpose, but truly and honestly answer this question. Can you squeeze one more thing in to your life without something else breaking or falling apart? How often does a New Year’s resolution turn in to yet another “To Do List” that you have to find a way to fit in to the rest of your life?

This year, make a New Year’s Resolution for yourself that will be of benefit to you and to all who know you!  Make it a year where you only make ONE New Year’s resolution – a resolution that gives you a break; that will not only help your attitude about the things going on in your day-to-day life but also help all those around you, from co-workers, employees, friends and family!

Put a “Do-Nothing” Time on Your Schedule…Get out your calendar right now (don’t procrastinate and say “I’ll do it later”) and look at next week.  Is there anything on your schedule that you could either postpone, trade with someone else (spouse, friend) that would give you the opportunity to just do absolutely nothing.

  • Aim high on your goal – See what one day you could set aside to:
  • Watch old movie favorites
  • Go somewhere and just sit and enjoy a favorite latte and read that book you’ve wanted to read
  • Get that massage you’ve been postponing and while you’re at it, have your nails done or some other little treat you’ve put off because you didn’t have the time.

Involve your family in your decisions so they see the benefits too – Kids need to have that time to just hang out. – Set aside an evening with the kids:

  • Play games
  • Watch a movie together
  • Bake cookies

Whatever it is that you as a family enjoys doing together; plan that time together each and every week.

You may find that these days of “do nothing” will be of more help to you than many self-improvement plans that can cost upwards of $100’s and $1000’s of dollars…The times of “Do Nothing” will get you back to your natural timing and you will find you actually do many of your original resolutions naturally.

So, to one and all, Happy New Year and Let’s Make This One the Best Ever!
