You have done your best in 2018. You want to change and/or improve something in 2019. So it’s pretty normal to go ahead with new year resolution.
Losing weight, learning language, passing the exam, getting/changing job, You name it.
However, let me remind this unfortunate fact (I am taping the wood now)…out of 100 people who make resolution, 92 of them abandon their resolution. That leaves only 8% of successful people. If it’s true, something must be wrong with resolution making. So through the main point of this pointーmore habits than goalーI hope to contribute to improve this statistic in a long run.
“I will make this year different from the previous one.”
Many people, including me, think so and make new year resolution, be it new career, skills, health issues, etc. So do I.
Usually, I make new ones right after new year starts. Before doing so, I reviewed the previous year’s goals through my blog. That’s when I realized that I made two mistakes: I didn’t even remember my previous resolutions, and some of resolutions have gone unresolved.
So I started analyzing WHY. The answer was quite simple: there was lack of SMART goal making and Follow-up. And I think this applies to some people, if not most, who didn’t achieve last year’s goal(s). So I would like to introduce how to really make this year different, based on my mistakes (learning) and analysis.
