I know we are already more than one week into the new year. But I am going to address our most beloved, yet dreaded January tradition...resolutions. Most of us have probably failed in our quest for a new and better life, already. Right? We set our sights so high, what did we think would happen?
"I am going to work out three hours a day, five days a week!" Really? "This year I am not going to eat any fat or carbs!" Seriously? "I am determined to learn Russian fluently in 2011!" Come on!
I am not saying goals are not a great idea, but we need to know ourselves. We should lower the bar a bit to practical and attainable goals. Because when we fail (yes, I said when) we are only discouraged and more likely to fail again. Sure, some of you are thinking, "Hey I did learn Russian last year!" Well then, I am not speaking to you. For the rest of us average achievers though, use common sense. Instead of the usual crazy resolutions, try: "I am going to eat pizza once a week." Done. Now that is one mighty attainable goal. I am kidding, but you get the point.
Here's one that we all can achieve: "I will eat five meals, made from scratch in my kitchen, each week." Now if you simply do not cook, don't worry. That is where I come in.
