New Year’s Resolution Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue No. 104

This week’s reflection point: I recently came across statistics compiled by the University of Scranton regarding New Year’s resolutions. Here are some interesting highlights:

  • The top resolutions are: lose weight, get organized, spend less and save more, enjoy life, and stay fit and healthy.
  • 45% of Americans make such resolutions while 38% never make any resolutions.
  • 8% successfully achieve their resolutions.
  • 75% of resolutions are maintained through the first week, which is down to 46% after six months.
  • 39% of people in their twenties achieve their resolutions each year and only 14% over 50.

My assessment is that in order for resolutions to be successful they need to:

  • Be an integral part of our ongoing goals and desired accomplishments.
  • Answer the “why do it?” question.
  • Review the resolutions often.
  • Have a sense of urgency and accountability.
  • Be realistic and have an action plan attached to them with a timeline.

May all your resolutions become your reality. Happy New Year!

This week’s tip: Don’t let my cartoon become your reality. Integrate your resolutions into your strategic review and transform next year into an amazing year.
