New Year Resolution for 2017

New Year is near. The hunt for new resolutions are on.

But why we failed the last resolution of 2016? This question should drive our thinking process. Too many new year resolutions increase our excitement, but decreases our chances in successfully meeting them.

This idea of failing at having many to-do list is explained beautifully in The One Thing. This book tells that if you try to achieve many things for a particular day, then you might either be able to half halfheartedly completely all of them or after completing some of them your will power will be lost and you will be unable to complete the whole list.

It talks about the will power as a battery, that depletes after use and time, which actually makes a lot of sense.

So this book tries to make a the point that to be able to complete, you have to prioritize your to-do list.

I believe this is similar with new year resolutions too. So instead of writing down a bunch of to-do lists, we should prioritize which one should we must have to do for the month of January 2016 instead of the whole year.

So there you have it, my resolution is to have a clear concise, written, well spelled out resolution, Yes ONE. resolution that I believe, I can manage.
