Many of us commit to starting off the year the right way with wonderful new years resolutions.
75% of people last one week after making new years resolutions. 40% last six months and only 19% last past a year.
Here are some of the personal excuses:
I can't afford the gym
I have children
I do not have time to eat healthy
I'm busy with work
I'm just too tired
No time for training
Retreats are too costly
Wishing and hoping the conflict will go away
Ignoring the conflict
Assuming the team will finally come together
Improved well being, healthier, exercising, getting more rest or finding time to help the children with homework, are not going to just happen.
Problems and conflicts in the workplace won't just go away either. They escalate and can be very costly:
Stress, frustration, and anxiety
Loss of sleep
Grievances and litigation
Loss of productivity/wasted time
Increased customer/client complaints
Unresolved conflict represents the largest reducible cost in many businesses, yet it remains largely unrecognized.

Whether it's your children, a personal health goal or workplace conflict, there is still time this year to get on top of those concerns. Meet with your support system or leadership team. The fall is the season for revisiting goals and getting back on it ...before the hoildays...
