The problem with New Year’s resolutions
With every new year, it’s natural to consider setting ambitious New Year’s resolutions. As great as it sounds, I encourage you to think twice.
More often than not, these resolutions lead us towards failure rather than success.
Parkinson’s Law and resolutions
This tendency is largely due to something called Parkinson’s Law, which suggests that work expands to fill the time we allot for its completion.
A common example would be a school or work assignment that is given a week’s deadline. As much as we want to prioritize it, often it’s usually left until the day before to complete.
This procrastination is Parkinson’s Law in effect, and it’s the same principle that often derails New Year’s resolutions. By giving a whole year to meet our goals, we’re essentially inviting procrastination and loss of focus.
This isn’t to say that you should give up on setting goals altogether. Rather, the secret lies in establishing smaller, more achievable objectives.
