Isn’t it interesting how seriously we seem to take our New Year’s resolutions, but how little time we actually spend on making sure our goals are well thought through, realistic, rooted in our values and fit with our lives?
Your resolve is rarely stronger than when you wake up on New Year’s Day with a hangover. Perhaps not from partying too hard all night, but from a month-or-so of overindulgence that culminated the night before.
Your “last chance before everything will be different in 2017.” Sounds familiar?
In that moment, the motivation to be far removed from that experience is the strongest. However, a week or so away, you’re far enough removed for that motivation to fade. It’s not enough to throw out the same tired goals from last year, or some new ones created in a hangover-induced haze.
You need something really compelling to move towards.
A compelling future
It doesn’t have to be a long, arduous project to envision it. But going through the process and investing in creating one that makes sense and fits your life, makes it much more likely that you’ll actually create that future.
Your motivation will not fade, but grow stronger the closer you get. When you can see it, and feel it, you’re more likely stick to the plan and make it happen.
Do you know how to get there?
It’s not always easy to sit down on our own and get a clear vision of what we want and where we’re heading; to consider all the moving parts and where it really leads. It’s too easy to end up with goals that are vague and lack grounding in our own reality.
And it’s not about skill or capability. I’m 100% confident that we all have the vision, the the plan and the how-to skills to get there. We’re just too close, too involved in our own lives to get a good overall picture on our own.
That’s why a from-the-outside-looking-in view-point is invaluable. That objective voice adds perspective and leads to greater insight than anyone of us can reach when we stay in our own head.
