I’ve always been one of those people that come up with the best resolutions for the new year, but about two weeks in I have already failed every one. I know that I am not the only one out there that does this, so when I found out about an easier way to complete my resolutions I wasn’t going to let that opportunity pass me by.
Why I Joined 12 Changes:
As stated above, I am no where near capable enough to complete year long goals. Between my ADD and my commitment issues, it’s just not happening. Having the ability to split up my resolutions into individual months, instead of multiple resolutions for the whole year, was the best way for me to complete everything I’d like to change.
I’ve been so excited about my 12 changes, that I’ve actually began multiple changes even though its only three days into the new year. At first I was just supposed to be cutting the caffeine out of my diet. I am so addicted to caffeine that if I go a single day without it, I will get massive migraines. I’ve been able to go three days without caffeine and I figured it was too easy for me to focus just on this change. I am now focusing on packing a lunch for work each day and save a little cash.
Having the option to focus on as many changes as I want makes it so much easier. If it is a difficult goal, then I can just focus on that one for the whole month – or vice-versa for easy goals (ie. this month). This is what makes 12 Changes such an awesome project for anyone looking to accomplish their resolutions – or other changes that may not be resolutions.
Why Guys Should Join 12 Changes
I think the majority of guys out there are stubborn. I’ll even admit that I am myself very stubborn. Guys, in general, don’t like to admit defeat, especially the tough ones. Why would a guy want to put their faults out on the internet for the world to see? I have a couple reasons why I think some guys might benefit from 12 Changes.
For guys who have a family, think of this as something you can do with your family. For example, my mother walked in the house today after work and said, “Only one Mountain Dew today and I drank two waters.” I inspired my mother, the person who drinks Mountain Dew like it’s water, to start cutting down on caffeine. The fact that I can help someone from my family make a change in their life is even better then me making changes in mine.
Guys that want to get some cute girls attention, no comment, you should check out the blogroll. Maybe you might have date more on your changes, you might possibly find a girl that also has the same change. Anything is possible.
Really, there is no reason why anyone should be afraid of change. It happens, we don’t like it at first (i.e.. Facebook’s layout change), but you just need to let it happen and see where it take you.
