What's the status on your new year's resolutions?

There are only 8 months left of this year! How are you working on your resolutions? This may seem like a lot of time, but if you really think about it, are 8 months really a long time?

Be a better version of yourself

I know life can be busy enough as it is, and adding a new set of activities might seem like a burden.  There’s barely enough time and energy as it is! Why bother adding even more to an already full plate? There is also the factor of disappointment, however, that happens when something is unfinished.  Are your goals unfinished?

Did you make a list of resolutions, goals, or dreams for this year? If not, then I challenge you to make a list of at least three things that would help you be a better version of the you that is today. Why would you do that?  Wouldn’t it be a gratifying experience to be waking up the last day of this year and thinking about how you have saved enough for the house you wanted?  Or maybe you will be thinking about how you improved the fluency on a second or third language? Maybe you have spent more quality time with your loved ones? Maybe you learned to play guitar?

Think about what your future self will think of you. If you could have your future self send you a message, what do you think he/she would tell you to do, to practice, to learn?

This could also be a good group or team activity. Schedule a meeting with your team to have a casual discussion about how everyone would like to improve during the remainder of this year.  You'd be surprised at how many of us might have a lot of common goals! If we could help each other reach these goals, wouldn't that be better?
