You have a blank slate.

What will you do with it?

You have a blank slate.

By: Ross Paterson

The new year is full of new possibilities. How will you make the most of it? It’s a question some of you have already answered through resolutions and setting goals.

America’s Top New Year’s Resolutions for 2023 are:

  1. To exercise more
  2. To eat healthier
  3. To lose weight
  4. To save more money
  5. To spend more time with family/friends


Only about 16% of people follow through with their resolutions. Most people blame their failure to fulfill resolutions because of lack of time, resources, and motivation.

Here are some tips to be on the other side of the 16%.

  • Set realistic expectations
    Establish reachable goals that are still challenging. Reaching your goals require you to change your behaviors.
  • Have someone that holds you accountable
    Work with a coach, mentor, or trainer. Work with people that elevate and encourage you.
  • Track your progress
    What gets measured, gets done. What gets done, can be made a habit. Keep a track record of accomplishments.
  • Break the resolution into plans, action steps
    Good implementation plans are key. Goals become more realistic when they can be broken down into smaller pieces and scheduled on a calendar.
  • Get rid of self-doubt
    Don’t allow your past failures to dictate your future. Celebrate each tiny victory. Don’t let a minor setback turn into a permanent failure.


Best wishes to you and yours and good luck with your resolutions and wishes for 2023.

Happy New Year from the XM Performance team.
