Welcome to 2016! Are you in the groove of things yet? The New Year always seems to bring feelings of excitement mixed with some anxiety. There is immense pressure on everyone to make a huge life change and to not fail at doing so. Why is it that we put so much emphasis on New Year resolutions anyway? Your motivation to build a better self should not begin on January 1st; it should begin right now and must be never-ending. So how can you make your resolutions stick?
Creating resolutions that stick
The resolutions you set for yourself, if done correctly, should become routine. They are habitual building blocks that will create a better you. It’s a brick and mortar job, if you will. Think of the resolutions as the bricks and the key elements of CATSHOT’s performance triad as the mortar that holds it all together. So how do you go about ensuring that you don’t fail at your resolutions? How do you get them to ultimately, stick?
Have you ever been around someone who seems to glide through each day with a smile on their face, a spring in their step, and they consistently get more accomplished in three hours than others do in eight! These relentless innovators have developed high-performance life skills and habits that keep them focused, energized and efficient. When you adopt a high-performance lifestyle and relentlessly practice the concepts of C-13, that example will be you.
It’s time to jump into an effects-based life planning mindset! By now you either know what your Noble Calling in life is, or you have a systematic way through C-13 to find it. You have interim goals, you have C-13 goals and you have weekly goals.
