How are those resolutions going?
For most people they’ll just be a distant memory by now.
The alcohol abstainers will be too drunk to remember they were going to give it up. And the resolved non-smokers will have had at least one crisis that called for a ciggie.
A friend of Simonne’s came up with a novel concept – instead of resolutions (which hint too much at unresolved past problems) she suggests evolutions. This means concentrating on behaviours that allow her to evolve. Simonne says, with regards to money this might mean setting up a direct debit into a savings account each month, learning about different approaches to managing money or simply checking bank statements online regularly. She feels this approach will lead to more behavioural flexibility, help her develop and won't put a limit on what it's possible to achieve.
