New Year’s Resolutions don’t work. What does?

I am not a fan of New Year’s resolutions.

Because they are grand. Because they are overcommitting. And because they put the emphasis on change. They are usually radical. They are after all, “a new beginning”.

But a new beginning may not be what we need. Maybe starting from zero every year may be a waste of momentum. Maybe all we need is shift our mentality from “needing to achieve”, to simply committing. Committing to a route and taking just a small step. Every. Single. Day.

I feel that for most of us some sort of a route is already there, either in a defined manner, or simply lingering in the back of our heads. It’s something that makes us curious, passionate, keeps us up at night.

So, here is a New Year’s resolution worth making: that we relieve ourselves from the “need to” mentality and simply commit to exploring the route. Not because we need to show something for the year that passed – but because committing to walking the route – one small step every day – shines a beam of hope and joy in us. And I can only guess that in a Year’s time from now we might find ourselves surprised by how possibilities have shifted in ways we couldn’t even fathom in the wildest of New Year’s resolutions.

Happy New Year!
