There’s absolutely nothing wrong with making New Year’s Resolutions. A resolution is simply a firm decision, a determination to change something. Nothing wrong with that… but don’t leave it at that. Doing two simple things will take it out of the realm of mere intention:
- Tie your resolution to the purpose God has for your life. Fitting it into the big picture gives it a meaning and value that will take it beyond just the heady rush of the first week of the new year.
- Write down the resolution in the form of an actual goal. Use the SMART acronym to get it on paper and in your heart and mind.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with making New Year’s Resolutions, but without a form to them, an actual reason and an actual plan, what’s the point? Be intentional. Burn bright.
