Break up your res­o­lu­tion

Canadian Cycling Magazine - - FEATURE -

Still want to make a change in 2019? If you’re go­ing to set a New Year’s res­o­lu­tion – and you should if you want to – don’t just make a list of a few ba­sic, broad goals. Start with those broader res­o­lu­tions, and then break each into month-by-month steps. “Think about what you want to pull off by Dec. 31, and think about a monthly sys­tem­atic plan to get there,” Mar­shall says. “Each month, set lit­tle steps, iden­tify ob­sta­cles and fig­ure out an im­ple­men­ta­tion process that makes sense for your life, in or­der to get through each month.”

“I’m not a killjoy. I won’t say toss the vi­sion board, burn the dream jour­nal,” con­cludes Mar­shall. “Set au­da­cious goals, but come back to the me­chan­ics. Have that slo­gan on your re­frig­er­a­tor, but spend your time on what the four­week im­ple­men­ta­tion for that goal is, and stare at that on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. It’s way less sexy, but what’s even less sexy is get­ting to the end of Jan­uary and al­ready hav­ing given up on your res­o­lu­tion.”
