Used right the word “resolution” is powerful.
But I think most people use it wrong.
The word “resolution” means: “a firm decision to do or not to do something.”
But many people seem to look at a a New Year Resolution more like a dream, almost a wish, something we hope will happen.
“I am going to loose 10 kg (I hope…)”
“I am going to (try to quite smoking, (again)…”
And so on.
But a resolution is not a vision to hope for – it’s a firm decision to do something.
And some also seem to think that a resolution limits our options because it somehow would hinder us from changing our mind in the future as some new opportunities might arise, or the world might change.
But to not take a decision, to always be standing in a crossroads keeping our “options open”, and being “flexible” means that we never start to walk down any path.
