It’s a New Year…
and a lot of people are taking this time to make some major changes in their lives. At the stroke of midnight, we had a new day, a new week, a new month and a new year. Why not create a “New You”, Amiright?? EXACTLY! Let’s just Reset it ALL!
This is where New Year’s resolutions come in. There are lots of people out there that will make resolutions to lose weight, eat healthy, save more money, and go to the gym. On the other hand, there are many people that refuse to make resolutions, but will choose to set goals instead. But what’s the difference? Well, the differences are subtle, but they exist. For a long time, I thought they were the same thing and couldn’t really understand why others saw them as two different things. So here it is.
According to Dictionary.com
A Resolution is defined as a firm decision to do or not do something. In other words, you have recognized something that needs your attention and make the decision to do something about it. You’ve said to yourself that there will be some things that will be done differently in some area of your life. A Goal on the other hand, is defined as the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result. The destination of a journey. In other words, you know the end results that you want to have. You see the final outcome that you desire.
As you can see, the two are very closely related though there are some variations. With this new understanding of the difference (and similarities) between the two, are you more likely to make resolutions or set goals for the new year? What are the differences for you? What are the goals or resolutions that you will set for this year?? I’d love to hear from you!
