"What can I actually accomplish in one year? In January you feel like it's a million things, but by March you may be tempted to delete 90% of your list or just give up altogether. Trust me, I know the feeling. That being said, this how I set myself up for resolution success.
Thinking you have one year left forces you to hone in on what's really important, forget the silly stuff, and go after things now instead of later. For me, this meant quitting my job, something I'd been fantasizing about for years, and living on the road.
I'm still mulling over my 2022 resolutions, and it's almost February. Why? Because I'm committing to working on these goals for AT LEAST one year. I need to make sure they are actually what I want, and that I've resolved to work on them.
I achieved a lot of "firsts" in 2021: I completed my first trail race, finally attained my goal weight (something I've tried for 10+ years), quit my job with no new job lined up (a glorious feeling!). . . It was a big year with big accomplishments.
