Why New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Work

C & H resolute

 

How are those New Year’s Resolutions Coming? Did you make a long list of resolutions for 2013? Maybe they included getting into shape, starting a business blog or newsletter , getting involved with a community outreach group or perhaps saving more money. After all, those, and many other similar goals, are viable resolutions with great benefits. Unfortunately, they are also resolutions that can be hard to implement into an already busy schedule. Earlier this year, my pastor shared some reasons why New Year’s resolutions don’t always work and I thought I would pass them along.

We try to accomplish them in our own power.
Most are incremental and not immediately transforming.
Most of them are outcome based, rather than action based.

So, if you have begun working on those resolutions and are wondering if it they are really worth it, don’t despair.  Keep on working at it. In fact, whenever you start something new, researchers have found that it must be done 21 times to become a habit. Of course, if you are finding that the resolution to “Start a blog post or newsletter” really isn’t your thing then perhaps you will find that it is beneficial to hire a writer to do it for you.  If that is the case, contact Write Away, and before you know it, those writing resolutions will be taken care of.

I have been writing for the Web since 2007. As a copywriter, I have provided SEO web content for more than 30 travel websites and written dozens of blog posts about social media, Internet trends and website design, as well as being the Content Editor for Coupon Claim.com. Not only do I provide web content, but I also manage several social media accounts that help businesses maintain a presence on the Web. In addition to SEO work, I am part of the creating and editing team with Creative for Kids, a children’s church curriculum company.

When I am not at my computer, I enjoy cooking for my family as well as for large events/activities, scrapbooking, reading and visiting new places. I am also involved in a variety of activities at my church such as writing children’s Bible lessons based on themes or for specific topics, directing Vacation Bible School and volunteering as the Administrative Assistant to our Children’s Director.
