All Year Resolutions have nothing to do with chronological time, but everything to do with living in the present.
Forget the calendar for a moment. Instead think with me about a span of time, that you get to choose, and make a strong resolution to change one thing in your life. You may decide that today, right now, is your best moment – and you are right! Or, you may select another time of the day or even another day – and you are right then too! Whatever time you make a focused resolution to made a change in your life is the right time.
Oftentimes, especially at the close of one year and the beginning of the new year, frantic energy is concentrated upon making changes such as loosing weight, finding a new love, getting a better job, or acquiring material things. We design dream boards, make pledges, write new year resolutions, and join a gym and then by May guilt sets in because our resolve to complete the major resolutions faltered.
I suggest that you make all year resolutions which you set up with specific time frames and specific one goal focus. For example, you may decide on Ma 20th to begin reading one book on goal setting for one week. So, your resolution time frame for this goal is May 20-27th.
Next you may decide to exercise more. Thus, you may decide that your start date is April 21st, the start of a new season and you may choose to close out this goal on November 21st as another example. Your all year resolution in this case would be to start exercising more on April 21 through November 21.
You get the gist. The power point here is that you:
1. Control the time frame rather than be controlled by social standard
2. Fix a definite goal
3. Establish a defined time-line to begin and end your resolution
4. Begin and start your resolution activity as planned
A fifth power point is to write your goal and time frame down. Henriette Klausser in Write it Down and Make it Happen, posits that writing down your resolution goal and time frame is the single most important step to internalizing and achieving your goal.
Inculcate your resolution. Make it yours. Own it and the time frame in which you pledge to begin and stop that particular resolution and begin your all year resolutions any time you recognize its your time to change, do something different, and alter your attraction so that you complete in phased steps your intention.
Resolve. Realign. Respond. Rewrite. Results.
Build your success, one resolution – sorted out by you all year – at a time.
