I’ve noticed a trend over the last few years moving away from New Year’s Resolutions, to New Year’s Intentions. What’s the difference? When you set a resolution, you define a problem and identify the solution. The solution is often a rigid, and far too often, ambitious goal. You either meet the goal, or you don’t. This often leads to individuals abandoning their resolution early on.
An intention, on the other hand, focuses on a way of being. Achieving that result involves more than just one action, allowing you to work towards it in a number of different ways.
