For a moment, simply imagine what could happen if you had the support and resources to do what you’ve been saying you’re going to do.
“One of these days… …I’m going to lose those extra pounds.”.
“Someday soon……I’m going to spend more time with my family.”
“As soon as I can get around to it… …I’m going to sit down and write that book that’s been inside me.”
Great dreams, fantastic ideas; but, the only question that really matters is, “When will you actually do it?”
Will you REALLY?
I know what you’re saying, “I really will. But, you know how it is. Between a job, family, social responsibilities, and running my household (let alone wanting some time to rest, relax – and sleep), those ‘other things’ keep getting pushed to the back burner. But, I’ll get to them one of these days. Really!”
To most of us, we feel there’s always tomorrow, “I always have more time.” But, in the back of your mind, you hear the clock ticking. You’re not getting any younger. Time is sliding by. You really want to do it. You know you’ll feel great when you do. And there’s a small part of you that is afraid if you wait too long, it just won’t happen.
“Most of us die with our music still within us.”
– Oliver Wendell Holmes
You’re not alone
According to Franklin Covey in its third annual New Year’s Resolutions Survey, which polled 15,031 customers, the top New Year’s resolutions or goals (not counting “other”) were ranked as follows:
- Get out of debt or save money
- Lose weight
- Develop a healthy habit (e.g., exercise or healthy eating)
- Get organized
- Develop a new skill or talent
- Spend more time with family and friends
- Work less; play more
- Break an unhealthy habit (e.g., smoking, alcohol, overeating)
- Change employment
How many of those are on your list? How many times have you attempted to make changes and not accomplished it? (Although this list is about New Year’s resolutions, their relevance is equally profound any of the other 365 days of the year. You don’t have to wait until January to be happy, you know.)
What’s particularly sad is that the Covey survey also found that 35% of respondents break their resolutions by the end of month one and only 23% of those surveyed don’t ever break them. Of those that break them, about 1/3 say they are not committed to the resolutions they set while 40% attribute breaking their resolutions to having too many other things to do.
