NY’s resolutions need a revolution

Written by Stuart Haden on January 13, 2014

We are a few weeks in to the New Year already. Have you set any resolutions? Are the resolutions you’ve set already starting to stall? If the answer to either of these questions is no then read on! I’ve never been a massive fan of resolutions, but this year I have been drawn to them – mainly down to the two resources I refer to in this posting. This short (5:25) video from Jeff Walker (a product launch guru) details rituals, habits and focus days. It’s a great way to start the revolution.

Combine this with a great posting from Srinivas Rao (Host of the Unmistakable Creative) and you’ve got a fantastic plan for the downfall of resolutions. Let Srini guide you through the coaching questions that you need. What is the most important thing I can be doing at the moment? What is my evacuation plan? What am I grateful for? What am I grateful for that hasn’t happened yet?

And if I may be so bold as to join the New Year revolutions, give each of your intentions a measure. Going to the gym ‘more’ often, yields nothing. Going to the gym ‘three times a week’ drastically improves your odds of success. Write your ideas down in an accessible and visible location – remembering to include both personal and professional goals. But most of all I would encourage you to map all your intentions referring to the five energy sources. Set out 5 intentions both for yourself and others = 10 a week…

Spirit – connections, meaning, morals and innovation.

Mind – study, research, reflect, learn, read and write.

Heart – relationships, emotions, social interactions and confidence.

Body – our primordial needs relating to physicality and environment.

Soul – this is where you feel most grounded and centered.
