When you’re making your New Year’s resolutions, keep in mind what you achieved in the past year, both positives and negatives. The truth is, while we can make as many New Year’s resolutions as we want, they won’t come to fruition if you don’t actually have the motivation and care to.
That’s why this year, I propose that instead of making a bunch of resolutions about losing weight, getting that dream job, or surpassing your sales goal from last year, that you take a step back and do a review of the past year. What’s that? Simple, take a look back at the last year and take note of all the positives and negatives that came from any actions. Take that list and use it as your guide for this next year. Make your resolutions around that pro-con list instead of blindly making resolutions that end up breaking before the year is half over. Use the positives and make sure to incorporate them more into your calendar, both personal and professional. Take notice of the negatives and think about what could’ve gone differently, how to prevent them, and if not then how to mitigate them better if they come up again. Taking the time to gain some perspective on your last year will not only be more beneficial and valuable to yourself professionally, but if you apply this to your work and company, you’ll find that it’s a lot easier to make changes and see improvements from last year than it would be with vague resolutions.
