Before I dork out and alienate you completely, let me first explain.
I am analytical by nature; I can’t help it. When I see a problem, my first reaction is to dissect it, understand the details, then solve it. And it’s not enough to make a list of solutions. I want a step-by-step list of prioritized tasks that will achieve my ultimate goal.
Just imagine how fun I am at parties.
When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, it’s not enough to make a list. I can list 100 things I want to differently/better on any given day. (Remember the 90/10 rule from Monday?)
But I can’t tackle 100 resolutions. It’s more realistic for me to tackle, say, 3.
What is an analyst to do? Why, create a resolution decision matrix of course!
For those of you that are
popular not analysts, let me introduce you to matrices. The matrix below is a way for me to evaluate each of my potential New Year’s Resolutions. I listed my resolutions on the left and created a weighted system to determine how much achieving each resolution would impact my life in different ways (0 meaning ‘not at all’ and 3 meaning ‘a lot’) .
And now, I give you,
an extreme example of dorkdom my Resolution Matrix!
Based on the outcome of my matrix, I need to offer more help to friends/family and drastically reducing screen time, whilst playing guitar and singing.
You know, in my spare time.
So now that I’ve completely dorked out, I ask you….
How do you select your New Year’s Resolutions?
