It’s near the end of another year, and it’s been a tough (two) years for many.

Right now, your inboxes are probably filled with tips and masterclasses on how stick to your New Year’s resolutions.

If you have a tough time keeping up with your resolutions past January of the new year, you’re not alone.

It’s why I don’t do new year’s resolutions.

My hockey team’s (Vancouver Canucks) new coach, Bruce Boudreau, shared a great lesson that can be applied to whatever it is you want to change in your life:

Don’t try to focus on a daunting task (i.e. New Year’s Resolution).

Just win the week.

So, that’s what I’d like share with you.

Win the week.

Whether it’s:

  • Learning something new (Brain) in a week
  • Being around positive people, avoiding negative people (Brain) for just a week
  • Doing 5 minutes of walking or exercise (Body) in a week
  • Cut out sugar (Body) for a week
  • Saving AND Investing $50 (Money) in a week
  • Saying “Hi” to a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while (Relationships) in a week

Just remember this, Win the Week.

Next thing you’ll know, you will have won 52 weeks.
