Yearly Resolutions are Worthless

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Alliance in Louisville, Colorado

Happy New Year!  Today we are waking up from a long night of partying and ringing in the new year.  Can you believe it?  It's 2011.  Wow! 

It's our custom to think about and set new year resolutions for ourselves.  Some examples are:  I need to lose 10 lbs, stop smoking, start exercising on a regular basis, get to work everyday by 9am at the latest, be a better Mother, be a better Father, save more money for the college fund, or just be happy.

I was chatting with my wife today and she suggested we need to look out 10 years with our resolutions and goals.  And I thought to myself this is a great idea.

I look back 10 years ago from where I was to where I am today:  I got married in the past decade, we had two daughters, I changed careers from Corporate Sales into Real Estate, we bought and renovated our current house, and we traveled a bit but not enough. 

So today I am going to take the time and effort to put together a 10 year resolution plan for myself.  Where do I see myself in 10 years?  How will my career path go?  What special projects will I have accomplished by then?  Travel?  Personal Development?  Personal enlightenment?  Health Goals?   Which college will my oldest daughter be attending in 2021? 

Pretty big questions, but worthwhile for me consider this New Year's Weekend.

Happy New Year to all of you!

I believe more in creating a game plan setting goals and making things happen. Tracking progress excites me. Good luck

Mario, we often don't go beyond short term planning. I like your idea for long term planning as a road map to our future. Thanks for the reminder.

I saw a joke on facebook from someone who said they were going to open a new guy / bar this year. The gym would be open the first 2 weeks and then the bar for the next 50 weeks.

10 and 50 year plans are not uncommon in Asia. Look at what quarterly goals do to US businesses. They keep losing the war to win the battles.
