Exercise and weight losses are the top personal goals in the US, according to Statista.
You’re the average of your five closest friends, some people may say. We’re unique but also painfully similar to everyone around us.
Everyone has goals, and some are broader than others. I focus on specific business targets like launching MadX and building 2 Minute Madness, my publication for short daily reads in personal development.
However, I’m not sure if other people share my current goals.
Rewind to 2015, and I embody the whole list of the most common goals people set in a year.
New Year Resolutions are an excellent way to measure the most common goals.
People share a similar decision-making pattern when they choose how to set goals, targets, and changes. Most strive to become better versions of themselves, according to the US polls.
We’re not that different when it comes to setting up personal goals.
- Improving diets and eating more whole foods.
- Exercise more, and adopt a more active lifestyle.
- Saving money and improving the financial outlook.
- Losing weight and feeling better in your body.
- Spend more time with family and friends.
- Spend less time on social media.
- Improve work performance.
- Cut down on alcohol.
- Quit smoking.
I’ve quit smoking after with a NY resolution in 2015, and I haven’t had a cigarette ever since.
My smoking addiction grew beyond reason, and I slaved for the next pack, next smoke, and the next cigarette. I’d feel normal only for 6 minutes it takes for paper and tobacco to burn the filter and warm my fingers.
I had to have a pack on me at all times. Otherwise, my anxiety would get the best of me. I’d finish a pack of Marlboro a day and burn through 3 packs of anything on a night out.
Dropping cigarettes helped with finances, health, and physical performance. Sometimes, getting over a toxic habit can trickle down and help you improve life in areas you didn’t even expect to improve.
I’m not a social, regular, or everyday smoker anymore, thanks to one of the most common goals people set.
You don’t have to slave for your vices.
You’re fantastic, resilient and you can accomplish hard things.
