It’s a popular tradition to set New Year’s resolutions at the beginning of the year. Since 2020 was a year unlike any other, do resolutions even deserve a place on your to-do list?
It is time to finally ditch resolutions for something more useful like making a “Declaration for Your Future!”
Why it matters?
Declarations are about taking a stand for the future you want to create. Resolutions focus on an action we want or need to take and thus fail most of the time.
Making a Declaration
- Take some time to determine what is important to you and what future you want to make possible. This will summarize what matters most to you. This may take several attempts but keep at it.
- Write them down so you can easily view them or even hang them in your office.
- Share your declaration for your future with the most important people in your life.
- Now commit to and live-in accordance to your Declaration and enjoy the impact and rewards of leading a life you deserve.
Examples of Declaration vs. Resolution:
Declaration – I will be a present, powerful leader for my Team.
Resolution – Have more quality Team Meetings in 2021.
