Time of resolutions ?

leave a comment »

Traditionally, the end of the year is the time when we take resolutions for the new coming year. But most of the time, we do not keep our resolutions a long time, a bit like a drunk man who do not remember what he said the day before. How does it make that sometime, we do not keep our resolution?

A resolution is probably a short term intention without determination. This lack of determination is probably caused by the absence of objectives. If you take a resolution, you have first to know for which reason you will take it. The resolution is not the key factor to reach your objectives, but the motivation. The motivation can be only fed by a clear definition of your objectives. It is only when you know where you want to go that you can define how you will reach that goal and gain the motivation in order to support your efforts in the realization of your objectives. For instance, you will be motivated to learn about sailing navigation, because you want to cross over the ocean and discover new countries. Your objectives represent the main reason to do something, the support of your motivation. You do something because you want to reach a goal, and not because you want to spend time.

We are used to say that an entrepreneur has always a project, an objective in advance. It is necessary to have a look not only for tomorrow, but also for the day after tomorrow. Time to time, you have to put milestones, and see where you are coming from, where is the degree of completion of your objectives. These milestones are the support of your motivation, the milestones of the way of your life driving you to your objective, to your self accomplishment. The way of our life is a range of objectives, making sense to our life.

So, let’s be the entrepreneurs of our own life and if you have not yet thought about your objectives, please note that it is not too late, because it is not a year-end concern, but a daily concern.

Best Wishes for 2011 !
