New Year’s resolutions. Organizational goals.
We all feel pressured to set them. Yet research indicates that 92% of us won’t achieve our goals. And we often abandon them before January ends.
There’s a lot of speculation on why that happens. This includes our brains getting tired of thinking so hard. Or us having a finite amount of brain power and we reach the limit. But studies dispel both notions, by showing a short break can refresh us, and we can jump right back in.
Instead, I believe the research that indicates we decide we’d just rather do something else than keep hammering away on a goal.
Here’s the scoop. There’s a simple, effective — and free — strategy we can use to rewire our brains to keep going. This can keep ourselves and our teams motivated to reach our goals. Spend two minutes with me to find out what this is and how to use it.
