How's Your New Year's Res?

It's May. The year is 1/3 through its chronological movement in time and space. So, the logical question is, "How's your New Year's Resolution holding up?"


Is it alive and well? Are you daily working out obstacles and options and moving toward your commitment? Or did you bail?


To be honest, I don't know if it's worth it for you to keep pushing toward your goal or not. If it was an awful resolution - a goal set out of jealousy, a dream that took valuable time away from your family and your faith, a plan that flew in the face of the vision and purpose set on your life, well, then it's probably worth abandoning.


On the other hand, if you just got lazy, tired, depressed from the lack of tangible or mental or emotional progress, well, then I think you know what you need to do for the remaining 2/3s of the year. You haven't lost, you've simply wandered. Wandering can lead to absolute devastation if left to the wilds, but it's never too late to set new goals or even turn back.


So turn back and:

  1. Clarify your goal.

  2. Memorialize your resolve.

  3. Set healthy parameters (yes, this is a holistic journey).

  4. Create momentum (add a totally different area in life to grow in).

  5. Seek accountability.

  6. Grow in faith and faithfulness.

  7. Act tomorrow.

Whether your resolution is to build up your family, develop your skills or further your creative pursuits, now's a great time to reassess, clarify your end goal, recognize wins and set out on the journey. I'm convinced that we're designed by the Creator to co-create. And creating stirs up vision, mission and values in our pursuits. So, go pursue what's right.
