To resolve or not? Part One – Threshold of Brilliance – Episode 24 – January 1, 2024 – Show Notes:
 
We are in 2024. For the 37% who set resolutions, it is time for us once again determine our resolve. This exercise for most is about our intent of what we know we ‘should do’ even though only 8% will maintain or attain those goals by the end of the year. Unfortunately, when we fall short of our resolutions a couple of times, we tend to end up not taking them seriously. We halfheartedly set a resolution, but in the back of our minds, we don’t expect to keep them. And that can be an opportunity missed.
 
It is interesting for those in business we all know how important goal setting is. However, we have been disillusioned by doing it for ourselves, especially if we don’t achieve them. Having not achieved our goals, most of us try to make it a joke and decide not set resolutions. The top one this year is improved physical fitness, followed closely by improved finances and mental health according to Forbes. At the bottom of the rung in the study: perform better at work, drink less alcohol, and meditate more.
 
The definition of resolution is an act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc. : the act of resolving something. Most of us do that on a regular basis. Yet, most of us struggle to set or keep resolutions.  Join us as we discuss to resolve or not.
 
1.     Why should we set resolutions?
·       In Alice in Wonderland, when Alice asks the Chesire Cat “Which way I ought to go from here?”
The Cheshire Cat replies, “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
Alice says, “I don't much care where.”
The Cheshire Cat tells her, “Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.”
Alice, “...So long as I get somewhere.”
The Cheshire Cat smiles and says, “Oh, you're sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.”  ·      A resolution is about being specific in deciding where you want to go. – Brad. ·      What you get by achieving your goal is not as important as what you become in achieving your goal. – Zig Ziglar. ·      If our resolutions are flippantly set with little thought and little real commitment to following through on them, we probably shouldn’t set a resolution. But a resolution that is followed up with some discipline and determination, is an opportunity to reset, and achieve, a concern or a goal that we’ve struggled with. – JOHN ·      BE-DO-HAVE model – Steven Covey
 
·      Who we want to become should inform what resolutions we make – John
2.     Why do we struggle to keep resolutions?
a.     Rules for the direction of the mind. – Descartes
b.     Rules of the mind that pertain to making and keeping -- Brad
                             i.     Your mind is hardwired to resist what is unfamiliar and return to what is familiar
                           ii.     Each time you start taking a new path, that resistance is lowered.
                          iii.     What is expected tends to be realized
c.      We are not very good at setting attainable goals, or obtaining the goals that we set. I think it really comes down to not knowing how to think about the goals, along ourselves to come, distracted from the goals, and not being fully committed to attaining them. – John
d.     Not Being the person who takes the actions to attain the goal – John
e.     If your resolutions do not fit in the context of the vision, you have for your life, you’ll struggle to take them. – John
3.     What are some questions we should ask ourselves before setting resolutions?
a.     What is my Why for wanting to achieve that goal? Or why is our core values, if we don’t set resolutions within the context of record valu
