Get more organised. Eat healthier. Buy a gym membership and actually go. Read for pleasure more. Every January 1st we set ourselves goals like these and by January 14th (or there abouts) we’ve already given up on them. That’s part of the reason why I’ve given up on New Years resolutions.
Typically New Years resolutions are big. They’re the bigger changes that we want to make in our lives. For me, that’s the reason that I quit before January is over. I gave up on New Years resolutions when I realised that I’d be much more successful if I set myself a series of smaller goals. Having smaller goals makes them feel much more achievable, making you less likely to give up on them; plus, you get to celebrate your victories along the way.
It always baffles me that people wait until January 1st to decide that they need to make a change in their lives. I gave up on resolutions because I got fed up of waiting to make the change. As soon as I see something that needs changing about myself, I’d rather resolve there and then to do it. There’s no need to wait for January 1st, make the change whenever.
This year is a new chapter in your story. Let this be the year that you start a new adventure. Let this be the year that you give yourself a new level of grace.
Happy New Year!!

The pain of being laid off is affecting thousands, but mostly in big tech. It saddens me to say I was just laid off and although I did not work or one of the major big tech companies like Twitter, Alphabet and others we were still apart of financial tech. Here is a recent article […]
Happy New Year 2023! What the new year means to me, to you, to the world. It means something different for everyone. Some create resolutions for the new year to be new person, new goals. I am often reminded of when I would attend my local gym, a 24-hour fitness which by the way is […]
