Episode 35: Forget Resolutions - Let's Try Something New

Ever found yourself wrestling with the idea of New Year's resolutions, only to end up on a merry-go-round of unmet expectations and dashed hopes? In this week's episode, I challenge the traditional concept of New Year's resolutions. I dive into the common pitfalls of setting unrealistic goals in January and explore the reasons why most resolutions fail by the end of the month. Instead of traditional resolutions, I suggest adopting a more dynamic approach—what I call "resolutioning." Sounds interesting? Make sure you tune in!


Episode highlights:

(2:27) Personal experiences with resolutions and the limitations of a one-size-fits-all approach
