In case you didn’t notice, the year is now 2019. If you didn’t notice then quite frankly you must have had some New Year’s Eve party. For many of us, 2019 has started in a similar way to previous years. Fireworks, bad heads, going back to work, knowing what day it is again and of course, making our New Year’s resolutions.
It’s estimated that around 60% of us will make at least one New Year’s resolution for 2019. And some of them are quite predictable. You won’t be surprised to hear that the most popular resolutions involve dieting, exercise, saving money, new hobbies and cutting down on or quitting drinking and smoking.
While they seem pretty straight forward, it is also estimated that only around 8% of people will achieve their goals over the course of the year. In fact, more than half of us will have failed in our resolutions before the start of February.
It’s a sobering thought which is ironic as many people will have broken their promise of sobriety. The truth is though, those resolutions aren’t as straight forward as they seem. Many are broad and vague, highlighting an end goal rather than the steps to getting there.
Instead, you should make your resolutions more specific and realistic. Rather than saying you want to do more exercise, reassess this and say you want to go on a 15 minute run every weekday, and look to extend the amount of time you spend running after a few weeks.
It’s a small change but it could be the difference between you achieving your New Year’s resolution or ending up as part of the large, disappointed majority.
New Year’s resolutions aren’t just limited to individuals though. Businesses will be setting their own resolutions and goals to hit over the year. Unfortunately, many businesses will be making the same mistakes as the 92% of people who fail to achieve their resolutions. Too broad and too vague.
However, this is a problem that can be solved with a simple change. If you are looking to achieve business growth, improve your brand image and increase team spirit, there is one thing you can change to help you take a big step in right the right direction to ensure success in these areas.
