New Year’s Resolutions

This is the time when many people make New Year’s resolutions. But what’s in a word?

A resolution is a formal decision or determination made by a someone who intends to take some action. Making a resolution involves firmness of purpose

In fact, a resolution is akin to the end result of a decision-making process. Something problem or issue will be resolved by the action taken or the course followed. In fact, it’s a form of goal-setting. Someone has been struggling with a problem or issue, has decided to do something about it, and sets a goal, with a plan of action.

Unfortunately, people who make resolutions often use the word “try” in their statement. “I will try to lose weight this year.” “I will try to be a nicer person this year.” “I will try to do better at ….”

However, to quote Yoda (of Star Wars fame): “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” Realize that if you succeed at trying, that says nothing about whether or not you succeeded at reaching your goal. The action is to achieve your goal, not just try for it.

So, Happy New Year, and make your resolutions count.
