“I never set out to conquer everything in a day, week or month. Instead, I make a commitment to myself that I will make progress towards my end-goal each day — no matter how small.”  Dawn Strobel

There many methods and countless articles about how to set smartly your goals and achieve them. Most of them are, in my view more complex than they should.

Naming a goal says so much more than what you seek to achieve. The target indicates your priorities, your preoccupations, perhaps even your stressors.

And what about naming the thing you WON’T do? It’s the difference between saying “I resolve to work more efficiently” and “I will NOT look at my phone as much at work.” The ends may be the same, but the means can diverge wildly.

Best things to ask yourself are both easy and simple:

  • What is your 2019 resolution?
  • What will you NOT do this year?

Easy questions. Complicated answers.

Here is what I promised to myself – I will focus more, do less in quantity with better quality so that become much better at what I do. Also, what I will do is what matters to me the most – in business as well as in life in general.

When it comes to what I will avoid – saying yes when I do not want to as well as doing things harmful to my health under social pressure. Also, I will not do things I do not want to under social pressure.

I also plan to stick to the following 8 things that Jeff Hadden posted a while back on Inc., with some personal nuances of course. Here is what are these:


What are your resolutions for 2019?

Post Scriptum

This post has actually led me to to quite a lot. Here you can see what happened since I started implementing that remarkably easy strategy.
