[00:00] Welcome and Intro
[1:50] Excerpt from Winning Resolutions: Achieve Your Biggest Goals and Wildest Dreams Once and for All
In this excerpt, Keith outlines the 6 Ps of planning your resolutions:
- Precise – you need to know exactly what success looks like for your resolution and when you’re going to get it done
- Proximal – In general, short term goals work better. I recommend resolutions of 3 months, not the full year
- Practical – Your goals need to be realistic so you truly believe you will accomplish them
- Positive – replace words like quit and never with a focus on what you’re doing to do instead
- Peaceful – your resolutions need to align with each other and your core values
- Promised – Treat your resolution like a promise to yourself
