Create Remarkable Resolutions!

December 31, 2007

26 Questions

Some will argue for New Year’s Resolutions, others against.  The one argument is that people are actually thinking about their future and considering making changes for the better.  The Glass-is-half-empters are citing a variety of statistics as to how few people make good on their resolutions.

I sit solidly in the first camp.  Even if not every resolution is kept, the process is valuable.  What I have done is created a tool to help people look at the past year to harvest the lessons and learning, and use that information to project a future filled with remarkable results.

This tool is designed around 26 questions – 13 to reflect on the past and 13 to project into the future.

I’ve made this tool available for free and am blogging some of my answers to these questions, one day at a time.   You can learn more about this project, by reading the first post from December 18th. I will begin with the projection questions starting tomorrow.

 All of this activity is important for us as individuals, but as leaders we can leverage from this as well.

You can take advantage of people’s tendency to make resolutions to get people thinking about the future, new actions and different results more easily during this time of year.  You can also use the questions with your team to help them both learn and plan more effectively – for the benefit of them as individuals and the organization collectively.
