As we roll in to the New Year, many people set goals or resolutions for the year ahead. While thinking about my plan of action for 2019, I started to think about the word resolution. I have been setting New Years Resolution’s for years, yet what exactly is a resolution? According to the dictionary, a resolution is a firm decision to do or not do something. In my search to define resolution, I came across a word that really stuck out in my mind, resolve. The definition of resolve is to settle or find a solution, or to decide firmly on a course of action. Being a visionary, I sometimes bounce in several directions at once, and often throw out ideas and suggestions to see what sticks. I mulled over this thing called “Resolve” and have decided to focus on this for 2019.
Being a business owner, I am often pulled in several directions, simultaneously. Time is of the essence. I take on tasks, engage in life, and seek out what is next. In order to obtain true Resolve, it’s important to review the history of similar tasks and identify what has been done before. I have found that I tend to move on to the next task at hand too quickly. I don’t always provide proper closure. Thinking about Resolve, I have now realized that this is an extremely important process.
This year, I plan to focus on bringing Resolve to issues before moving on. I will review what the superseding task was, analyze what was done, and review the results. I will evaluate impartially and consider each situation from all angles. Then I will assess what could have happened differently, and what may have changed as a result of this. I will recognize my employees for their results when credit is due. I will use unfavorable situations as a learning tool, to provide feedback, and strive for perfection in the future. Bringing Resolve can increase your potential if you are presented with the same situation again, allowing you to capitalize and work through the same event more efficiently with better results.
We all want better results, don’t you?
2019 will be the year of resolve, proper closure, and increased results!
“Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success.”
