Are You Making a New Year’s Resolution?

It’s 2017! This year I will NOT …

… lose weight.

… have better time management.

… be a better friend, spouse, parent, co-worker.

… achieve work/life balance.

… eat healthier.

And, of course, I will NOT accomplish my career dreams.

WHY? Because I know myself, and my track record of aborting my goals by mid-year is certain! That is why this year, I will not make myself another year-long promise I know I can’t keep …

…and as your career coach, I am forbidding you to do the same!

According to the Journal of Clinical Psychology (2016) 35% of people give up on their New Year’s resolution within two months! Unfortunately, it gets worse!

By the sixth month, 54% have given up or failed at their resolution and …

By this time next year, 92% of people will have abandoned their goal altogether.

That’s a whopping 8% that actually achieve New Year’s resolution success!

Now, I’m not a mathematician, but from what I can tell, those aren’t great odds. Quite depressing actually, given statistically, the majority of us will end 2017 as losers! And I don’t know about you, but I don’t like losing.

So – this year, instead of making another promise to myself that I’m bound to break, I’m replacing my New Year’s resolution with a New Month Resolution!

And If you’re like me – and 47% of the population – your resolution typically centers around some sort of professional growth. A fresh start to focus on you, and your unique talents and contributions.

So, what is my New Month Resolution? To help YOU achieve your professional goals!
