We hope this month has treated you well, despite the seemingly endless wait for payday and the persistently dreary weather that can make it feel like Christmas was eons ago!
Now, let’s chat about those New Year’s resolutions. How’s it going with yours? In our office, we had a mix of aspirations, from the classic “stop biting nails” (already a bit chewed up) to the quest for a local fitness class (apparently, they’re playing hide and seek) and the noble intentions of Dry January (question: does wine really count as alcohol?) and Veganuary (oops, is that chocolate vegan, or did it sneak in some milk?).
Let’s be real – we’ve all been there, making resolutions that end up as fleeting as the British summer. According to UK Business Insider, a whopping 80% of resolutions throw in the towel by February. So, it’s not just you.
But here’s the thing we’re curious about What’s been the stumbling block on your journey to resolution success? Was it the ticking clock, a motivation shortage, or just life getting in the way? The secret sauce to reaching your goals apparently lies in crafting a supportive environment. Take a moment to ponder your current situation.
Are there pesky issues bothering you that could make achieving your resolutions a tad easier if you:
- Trimmed down that gruelling commute?
- Did you have a bit more cash in the bank?
- Achieved a better work-life balance?
- Surrounded yourself with colleagues who are as delightful as a hot cup of tea on a rainy day?
If you’re nodding along, thinking, “Yeah, that might just do the trick,” we’re here to lend a helping hand. The Harvey John team is more than willing to chat, be it over a coffee or a virtual call. No strings attached, no pressure, and always in the utmost confidence.
By the way, did you know that improving finances and work-life balance are in the top 10 Resolutions this year? Let’s turn that resolution into a reality, shall we?
Cheers to making things happen!
