My Favorite Article on New Year’s Resolutions

This is one of the best articles I’ve ever read on new year’s resolutions.  So good, that even though I don’t usually post guest features on a Friday, I’m doing it anyway.

The article takes a different approach towards better habits, improved health, and your goals in life.  It talks about creating successful resolutions that improve your life…and how important it is to start today.

This quote from the article particularly struck me, “The longer you wait, the more psychological cannon fodder builds up to convince yourself your goal is not actually a priority and you can ignore it.”

Two other points that I thought were particularly poignant:

  • choose progress over perfection
  • make your resolutions identity-based

What changes in your life are you hoping to make during 2014?

Yours in aging with class,
Jane

P.S.  The article mentioned above was written by Tyler Tervooren from Riskology.co.  His blog is well worth checking out.

    I’m lacing up my running shoes right now! That is a bold faced lie, as you know. The article did give me much to ponder, however. Thanks, Jane.

    • Glad you liked it, Debbie. I may not be lacing up my running shoes, but I’m going to start cutting sugar out of my diet. For me, that’s much harder than going out for a run. Thanks for stopping by my blog. 🙂 Jane
