What Will You Give Up This Year?

Many people are talking about, and maybe even committing to, New Year’s resolutions. And if you are, great. Here’s a different perspective.

I’d like you to think of a year from now. What would it be that you’d regret having not done a year from now? Think about that as a potential New Year’s resolution. But more importantly, what I’m going to ask you to think about is, what are you prepared to give up in order to be able to do the thing that you want to do? You see, most people are suffering from what I call “busy-ness”. “I’m too busy”, “I have too much to do”, “I don’t have time”. It’s the modern disease. If you’re not prepared to give up something, putting something else on your plate is setting yourself up for failure. Please don’t do that to yourself. Figure out what it is you’re prepared to give up first, then you can figure out what you’re going to replace that time with.

Have a great New Year’s.

Be well.
