How are your New Year resolutions going?
Are you making progress, or are they stalled?
Most people express their resolutions as statements:
- to lose weight
- go to the gym three times a week
- to learn Spanish
Even if it’s not New Year, you probably have a list of tasks you want to do, for example: I want to write this article to make it in time for my next newsletter.
In my to-do list it is expressed as: “write newsletter article”.
It’s a simple, straightforward description of what I need to do and it even has an action verb at the start to help propel me into … er … action.
Unfortunately this task has been languishing on my to-do list for most of this week. Sometimes, these things are easier said than done.
Ironically, this article is about helping you get moving on your resolutions and to-do lists. So I’m pleased to be writing this as a result of the wonderfully simple technique described in the article.
Ask me a question

Simple, I turned the write the newsletter article statement into this question.
