Kickstart 2017 using systems instead of goals

Did you kickstart 2017?

Are you making any progress with your New Year’s Resolutions?

We’re here to make sure that you kickstart 2017 the right way!

Don’t be despondent if you haven’t made much progress with your goals for the year. When we set our goals we tend to forget about all the things that are beyond our control. We have all been guilty of setting goals as though we live in a vacuum, as though we can control all the variables that come our way. Clearly that’s unrealistic. It’s no wonder that we get frustrated when things don’t go according to plan. And then all we can think about it how we are not achieving what we set out to achieve.

Forget your goals. Kickstart 2017 with systems.

One of the many problems with goal setting is that it encourages us to think in absolutes. We have either achieved a goal or we haven’t. Adopting a systems approach means that you focus on the process and, therefore, the progress you make along the way. Sometimes there is a specific goal in place, but often there isn’t. It’s about developing habits and enjoying the process. You’ll get there in the end – and stand a better chance of going even further. It’s a natural consequence of the progressive nature of systems.

In the end, it all boils down to effort.

Effort is what counts. Effort is achievement in and of itself. Effort will get you places. Effort can be recognised and rewarded. Critically, effort is something that you can control.

This might sound harsh, but we can’t all achieve all our goals. It’s a completely unrealistic expectation that modern society seems to have adopted unthinkingly. But it’s not all doom and gloom. Because we can all put effort into the things that matter most to us.

Kickstart 2017 with Kickstart January. It’s all about the effort.
