I think the reason why so many people bail on their New Year’s resolutions within a few weeks, is because they make the goals too darn big.
Giving yourself a full year to reach the proverbial finish line seems daunting, and so people just drop it.
That’s why I believe it might be better to simply reassess where you are, and what your feelings about your goal are, before you drop them completely.
Reassess and then shorten the timeline.
Break your goals down into smaller bite sizes, and have the deadline for one snack-sized goal be within a month.
And once that’s reached, reassess where you are within the context of the overarching main goal.
Then, move on to the next.
Twelve or so mini-goals sure sound more achievable than one huge mega-goal for the year.
