Making a Jewish New Year’s Resolution?

(1 minute read)
It’s the time of year that many of us might want to commit to a New Year’s resolution, maybe on behalf of ourselves, or perhaps on behalf of a family member or work/team member.

What’s going to make the difference between success and failure?

Well, there are five important ingredients.

Here’s ingredient #1: Vision.
We need to be clear about the precise goal and outcome we are seeking as well as why it’s important.

If you have a goal for a child or student, make sure you share the vision and goal with the child so that he or she understands and appreciates its importance as well.

Because what happens when the Vision is lacking? It results in Confusion! As in, “Why are you suddenly not letting me have sour belts before I finish my dinner?” That’s a child feeling confused about the new rule. Perhaps the mom decided that she wanted to institute better eating habits, but the child doesn’t know or share that vision, yet.

Therefore, have a conversation with your child or team member about the Vision so that you’re both on the same page.

Stay tuned for the next four ingredients as well as quick little tips to go along with it!

A Kesiva v’Chasima Tova and may we all be inscribed for a sweet new year full of health, nachas, peace of mind, and plenty of parnassah!
