New Year’s resolutions don’t work for most people. Extreme measures of goal setting, like SMART goals only work for about 25% of the population. Did you know that 75% people are not motivated by SMART goals at all? It shuts them down before they even get a good start. And believe it or not, only a small percentage of that 25% of people who are motivated by SMART goals, actually accomplish their goals. Resolutions are old, ineffective strategies from a past decade. Instead of “resolution” … think “intention”, or if it resonates with you more, think of it as an “annual theme”. I call mine a “Divine Intention”. Setting an intention and having it touch every area of your life is the new and quite frankly effective way to set personal or professional goals. Because remember, how you do anything is how you do everything.
