"Down with new year's resolutions and rethinking goal setting" [Creator's Block, Ep. 120]

"Down with new year's resolutions and rethinking goal setting" [Creator's Block, Ep. 120] Blog Feature

New year, new me mantra.

That’s right. This year, it’s just the same old me.

I’m not doing my usual new year's resolutions and here’s why.

2019 was a rough year for me. I had a lot on my plate and even more pressure that I put on myself. It was hard and most importantly it didn’t help my personal growth.

So, this year I’ve decided to give myself a well-deserved break.

Not a break in the sense of a gap year or not challenging myself, but a break in being so hard on myself.

The first step towards this: 👏 NO 👏 MORE 👏 RESOLUTIONS.

With help from an article by Sarah Bedrick (previously of HubSpot Academy), in place of setting lofty, pie-in-the-sky, year-long resolutions, I will be working on 30-day challenges. 

92% of people fail to achieve their new year's resolution. Why? Because setting goals like that simply doesn’t work for most people.

30-day challenges are a much healthier way of goal-setting because they are:

  • More manageable (mentally and physically).
  • They build confidence instead of reducing it.
  • And science says doing something for 30 days is enough time to develop a new routine around it.

Join Justine and I as we discuss breaking up with traditional resolutions and kindling a new relationship with 30-day challenges.

(And if you’re really curious here are our resolutions from last year.)
