Do you make the same list, or mostly the same list, each year? Do you say “things will be different this year “? Do you quit on “Blue Monday,” or at the latest Valentine’s Day, each year?
If this is really about doing something different, then why do you keep repeating the same behavior, expecting different results?
Can you write down one simple thing, something truly different, this year?
Can you track how long it lasts?
Are you willing to restart the very next day?
Are you still willing to make the number of days between failures bigger and bigger?
Are you willing to recognize that some kinds of change are about “progress, not perfection”?
