Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? Maybe it’s time to break up and kiss those New Year’s Resolutions goodbye! Instead, start focusing on solutions.

Do You Make New Year’s Resolutions?

When I was a kid I would fill out pages and pages of New Year’s resolutions at the end of December. Read more books. Study more. Take better care of my horse. Make more friends. Stay out of trouble. Read the Bible from cover to cover. Get a haircut. Sew more clothes. Be nicer to my siblings. Go running.

You’ve probably done the same thing. And had similar results. The only resolution I kept year after year was ‘stay out of trouble.’ Other than the two times I deliberately got in trouble during fifth and seventh grades (I wanted to run laps during recess with a friend and I wanted experience detention), I pretty much stayed out of trouble. But putting things on your New Year’s resolution list that you already do is cheating, right?

I’ve discovered an alternative to the failed cycle of resolutions and failure. You don’t have to wait until December to start, either. ‘Resolution’ simply means the act of determining. Basically, it describes an intent and nothing else. If we want to make real changes in our life, we need to do more than resolve. We need to solve.

Today’s podcast will guide you through six hacks to help you kiss your New Year’s resolution habit goodbye and start making real changes in your life. The good news? You don’t have to wait until December 31. You can implement these six hacks on a Sunday, the first of the month, during vacation, or on your birthday (people like starting things concurrent with new beginnings).
