Be the Change in 2020
The New Year is upon us and many are looking at the possibility of creating yet another resolution. My suggestion is to forget it! It didn't work last year so why submit yourself to the pain of failing yet again. The reason we fail and fail again is simply because we are using the wrong tools for the job and then blaming ourselves because it didn't work. So throw out the resolution and create a Process Pledge. What is that you ask? Learn more.
A Process Pledge is a vehicle that puts in place the foundation for real change. A resolution is a goal to attain or get something externally that gives us a sense, that suddenly our lives are good. The quicker it happens the better because we love instant results. We attempt to adjusted the external world in a way that makes us feel better fast. Yet, even if we get to our goal the celebration is brief and uneasy. I join a gym and quit after six weeks. I buy a dozen apps and use none of them consistently. I put myself on a strict diet and lose some weight only to watch it come back on as I slip into my old eating habits. Resolutions and goals are a road to nowhere.
A Process Pledge comes with a simple plan and a guide to keep us on track. We pledge to stay in process until we have changed something on an internal as well as external level and that is the difference. We also create this pledge with the support of others like us who desire real change in their lives. When we create a process pledge it frees us from the limited goal oriented mindset and opens us to a new way of operating in the world. It frees us from the "Rut of Routine" where we feel trapped in repetitive habits and patterns moves us towards the creation of productive new behaviors.
