The Real Reason Why New Year Resolutions Fail

You've got yours I hope? Got mine . . . well, I had it somewhere on the 1st January . . . After all the excess of the holidays, we resolve to be better people for the new year.

Philippa Perry, psychotherapist and author, positions the ritual for us.

"The tradition of a New Year resolution helps us to focus in the days beforehand on how we are going to carry out our new behaviour, so we can plan and be less likely to forget. Because of this tradition, other people will be in the same boat as us so we will have some support and, because everyone will be asking us around this time of year what our new year's resolution will be, we have an extra incentive to stick to our resolution because we will have told other people about it and may not want to look weak in their eyes."

Let me add my thoughts – with a business outcome as well. One size DOES NOT fit all and although most people do better with the support of a group they've told about their resolution (or at least one person who will challenge them on their progress or lack of it!) - this does not necessarily mean it's the best path for everyone.

It's about visibility and accountability.

The more public we are with our resolutions – even by writing them down and sharing them with a wide circle of our contacts – the more likely we are to succeed. It keeps the focus in mind. Same theory about lost car keys – if you are looking for them, keep saying "I am looking for my car keys" – it works to stop your mind from being distracted. Don't believe me – try it.

The more accountable we are – that's the key to success.

We have the same approach to BUSINESS PLANNING, don't we? Hmmm . . . maybe not. Let me ask you to consider the thoughts upper most in mind as we shivered our way through the most recent cold snap in the UK. Energy consumption.

By sharing our resolutions we gain feedback and dialogue – by sharing our plans at any level in the business we can engage with everyone – from the Board to Individual Contributor. We can all make a difference. By being accountable we have everything to win and success is closer.

What business resolutions have you made which are guaranteed to impact the bottom line? How are you making yourself accountable in making this year's resolutions a reality? You can start here – come on – talk to me about it . . .
