Happy New Year!

The new year is a time for new beginnings, and starting fresh. For a lot of people, this can be motivating for making changes in their lives. The most famous way we do this is the "new year's resolution". It's a goal, and also a promise. This year, my resolution is to lose weight.

But promises can be hard to keep. In fact, losing weight has been my resolution every year for the last five years or so. In the beginning our motivation is high, so it's easy to start out. Keeping motivation is the real challenge; one that I've failed every year. I usually diet and exercise well for a week or two, sometimes even a full month, but then I slowly lose interest, or get distracted, and cheat on my diet or skip exercise days more and more.

So how can you keep your motivation high? If we can find out how to do that, it could be helpful for all kinds of things, from studying a language to learning to play piano. I've tried all kinds of ways to keep my motivation high, with different levels of success. One thing I've learned is that people are different, so what works for one person might not work for another.

For me, it's really easy for me to break a promise to myself. If it's only me that is hurt, then it doesn't really bother me. But I really hate to break promises to other people, especially people I care about. I also don't like to look like a failure. So, I came up with two plans to help keep my motivation high for my 2019 resolution. First I made a promise to an important person, and second, I'm making my results public information. In my classroom, at the top of the right white board, I am writing my current weight each day. If everybody can see my progress, they will all know if I fail, and I think that will help my motivation. The first day was Wednesday, January 9, at 99.2kg. Don't laugh!

What's your new year resolution, and how are you going to keep your motivation high?
