“Small move, Big change!”– Caroline L. Arnold
With 2023 diving right into the quick stream of time, how many of your new year’s resolutions have you carried out so far? One maybe? Two?
An estimation suggests that people fail in keeping some 88 percent of the resolutions they make. Why? In most cases, it is because most of the resolutions we make for ourselves are too broad.
Let’s say you set a goal of travelling to a place overseas. This would be a “suitcase” resolution and dumps many unanswered questions in your lap. Do you have the funds for this trip? What can you do to generate those funds? When do you plan on going? How do you plan on going? Have you done some research?
Imagine entering a cake eating competition and in front of you sits a large cake. The judges set the timer off, and you are still confused on where to begin!
You realise that a quarter of the time has gone by, and you anxiously start to shove chunks of cake down your throat. Surely enough that scene does not end well.
Similarly, if you have made a broad resolution, it will be difficult for you to initiate it. Using “how”, “what” and “when” in the process of your planning will build a realistic sense around what you want to achieve, as it breaks the broadness into little bits of pieces you can chew on.
Caroline L. Arnold has a book titled “Small move, big change!” which is about making resolutions that succeed every time and the secret ingredient is utilizing micro-resolutions.
Don’t just stare at the large cake, slice it up!
