Plan Your Year with a Resolution Each Month

I’ve been contemplating the end of the decade, and this year, I am offering you something new.

This year, you are the artist of your own blank canvas, and I have offered you a focus for each month to take you through the first year of the new decade.

I have left it vague and fairly open on purpose: this exercise is to get you introspective and intentional.

Why I Quit Making New Year’s Resolutions to Explore Possibilities Instead

I don’t need studies to know that writing down goals works.  I’ve seen the proof over and over.  Still there is some impressive research surrounding goals and why writing them down makes a difference.

Back in 1979, Harvard researchers supposedly interviewed their graduates and found that 84% had no goals, 13% had goals but hadn’t written them down and 3% had not only written down their goals but had a plan to support them. Ten years later, they interviewed the same people and discovered that those 3% who had written down their goals were earning 10 times as much as all their other classmates.

Years later, wanting to verify that the Harvard study ever existed or had validity, Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican University in California, set out on a study of her own. She gathered 267 people — men and women from all over the world, and from all walks of life, including entrepreneurs, educators, healthcare professionals, artists, lawyers and bankers. The youngest was 23 and the oldest 72.
