The Process

download (2)

Happy New Year’s everyone!  The New Year brings with it an opportunity to start anew.  In our culture, it is quite common to make New Year’s resolutions.  The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a resolution as “the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc.”  A resolution is basically a goal.  I think it is great that people use the New Year to make resolutions.  Having goals for oneself is always encouraged.  People relate well to cycles; a new year is essentially the natural beginning of a cycle, thus a relatively convenient time to set goals.  Obviously, we should not confine resolutions or goals to New Year’s Day.  We should all be in a state of continually developing and progressing ourselves.

We are all aware of the ease of making a goal or resolution compared to the challenge of actually sticking with them.  I feel our resolutions should focus more on our process or progress toward a goal as opposed to the goal itself. Notice that I say progress.  Progress indicates positive, consistent actions toward an expectation or goal.   We have a much greater likelihood of keeping our resolutions, no matter when they are made, if we are focused more on the consistent actions to reach a goal.  Consistency in our actions leads to growing confidence, which strengthens our resolve in progressing toward our goals.  Achieving success is a process and not an event!

    1. I have a few things I’m working on and staying consistent on this blog is part of it. I also want to continue pushing myself out of my comfort zone in regards to helping our youth and people in general. I am working on related processes toward facilitating this goal.
