One thing Erik likes to do every year is set New Year’s resolutions. It’s something he’s always done but just recently, in the last two to three years, he has taken it more seriously. The difference now is when he makes a resolution it’s something that he really intends on keeping. In the past that wasn’t always the case.
At the time of this recording it is the beginning of March. Erik has spoken to people and asked them about their New Year’s resolutions and found that many of them don’t even remember what they were. Likewise, at the beginning of the year, when he would ask people what their resolutions were, they would chuckle and tell him their resolution, but it was almost as if they didn’t believe it themselves.
Erik believes that if you say you’re going to do something you should do it. You shouldn’t lie to yourself. There really isn’t a point in setting goals you don’t intend on keeping. So get serious about your goals, make a plan to reach them, remind yourself why you set them when you don’t feel like doing the work, then crush them!
