Say Good-bye to New Year's Resolutions

Updated: Dec 22, 2020

English Goals

Around New Year's, we hear the words goals and resolutions a lot. In fact, I’ve written some about getting clear on your English goals in the past. Writing down your goals can certainly have its benefits.

However, sometimes when we think of creating goals, we also feel an intense pressure to achieve them.

Under Pressure

If you’re like me, I don’t want to feel the constant pressure to succeed, to reach my goals, and to improve myself. For what reason do I say this? The pressure to succeed—especially in America—is already a bit suffocating to begin with. And, I know that other cultures share a similar drive to succeed; it’s not just an American mentality.

So, what if we looked at things differently?

What would happen if instead of writing down endless lists of goals, we created clear pictures of our lives instead? When I say picture I mean a really beautiful vision of what we want our lives to look like in the new year ahead. How do we form such a vision? asking ourselves powerful questions and being honest with our answers.
