On the river of life it is important to pull up on the bank and check our course. Life is a trip, not a destination. However, it is important to know where we want to go and what is important to accomplish along the way. What did we accomplish in the past year and what is important in the year ahead. Resolutions help us chart our course, set our priorities and paddle forward with purpose.
Why do so many resolutions fail? Basically, it comes down to not taking a resolution seriously. I may say I want to loose weight, make more money or help the homeless, but without a strategic plan to achieve our resolution it will fail.
Live life with purpose. Know what you must do to accomplish your purpose. You will live a happier, more productive life. Hau’oli Makahiki Hou.
