Why the word “resolution” is no longer in my vocabulary

Its that time of year again. Everyone is declaring what they want to accomplish in the coming year.

Personally, I decided not to use the word resolution, but instead use the word goal.

A goal can be adjusted. A goal can also be broken down. A resolution is set in stone and it causes pressure to get it done or else.

I didn’t accomplish all my “declarations” from last year. At first, I felt bad about them,  but at least I made progress on them, which is better than doing nothing at all. After all, who says that you stop working on them at the stroke of midnight?

There are many posts out there that cover tips for achieving the “R” word.

So instead of asking “What are your resolutions for the coming year?”, I’m going to ask what steps are you taking toward your goals.
