For three years I’ve not made a single resolution. That’s right…not a one.
Don’t get me wrong, I know I’m far from perfect, I know I could use a little help (what type of help could actually be debated), but in all seriousness, I have not not made one list of resolutions since 2011.
I no longer focus on bad habits to fix, good deeds to do, or goals to work on relating to the traditional New Year Resolution.
Neither do my kids.
That’s because I like life simple…
And, it’s worked!
You see, the truth is, I’ve been a self-help junky for too long and so I could never go into the New Year without at least something to get better at….
I found that the one word approach just made life easier, and believe it or not, it’s more effective!
This One Word thing has been way more effective than any approach you could ever take to a New Year’s Resolution…and it’s easy to teach kids how to do! When you take away the daunting list of ‘have-to’s’ and replace it with a philosophy, life becomes simpler.
Oh, but don’t let this simple one word idea fool you- It’s work. And it will pay off.
