Why do you never accomplish your new year’s resolutions?

It’s 2022. The last 2 years have been tough for everyone with the ongoing pandemic. What things have you achieved in the past year? Have you made any growth? If not then you have another chance for a fresh start. With the resolutions which you have might have planned in 2021 how many have you completed? If you have completed all of them then it’s great, keep up the hard work. If you haven’t then also it's fine. Today I want to share the most important thing for the failure of our resolutions.


Think process.

If your goals were to 1] Build 6pack abs. 2] Get into the most prestigious college in the country. 3] Get good marks in the term exams. 4] Read more books. 5] Hit 100k subscribers. If these were your goals then they were the wrong goals. If you see all the goals are outcome-based goals and some are out of your control. But instead, 1] Hit the gym at least 5 times a week 2] Solve entrance exam questions every day. 3] Solve past year question papers once a week. 4] Read 20pgs of a book every day. 5] Make YouTube videos twice a week. if these were your goals then you might have succeeded in achieving them. If you look at these, these are actionable steps to achieve your goals. These are the things which you can control. Hitting 100k subscribers might not be in your control but creating content twice a week can be in your control. The thing is we plan outcome-based goals which are the end result and forget about the process which will lead us to the result.

Forget the goals focus on the process”.

If you look at the goals in the first list you would see they are the bigger picture. In the second list, the goals are broken down into smaller chunks. You need to build habits and to build them you need to repeat the activity again and again. Once you repeat the same process every day you would get habitual to it, which would make it easier to achieve your goal. As James Clear talks about in his book Atomic Habits “Doing 1% progress each day can make you build a habit over time in the long run. You just have to contribute this tiny tiny progress.”


At the beginning of 2021, I set a goal of getting into one of the most prestigious culinary schools in the country which ranked 2nd in India. But I was more focused on the goal rather than the process. I just used to get up and think that I want to get into this college so let’s get to work. Working without a plan is much worse. If I would have focused on the number of sums daily then probably I would have achieved my goal. I didn’t achieve my goal but still, it is fine with whatever happened.

So decide your goals properly. Process-based goals are the no.1 priority and also the way you consistently work towards them. If you want to know more about habit-building then read the book summary of “Atomic habits”.
