A New Year’s resolution
2023 is just beginning and for many of us that means resolutions time. For more of us than usual in fact. Where we are writing this in London, a new YouGov survey revealed that one in five Britons (21%) say they will make a New Year’s resolution for 2023, compared to just one in seven (14%) who say they made a resolution for 2022.
But why do we do this?
It’s simple – the New Year offers a fresh start to make improvements and an opportunity to get things right and make changes. Change can be a big step; it takes courage and action to move through the fear of potential loss into the land of potential benefit. Resolutions are our promises to be brave in the face of that fear.
Time for a change
The current recession is forcing many of us to change – new routines and habits that will allow us to save on spend and get more ‘bang for our buck.” Car insurance, mobile phone contracts, and even grocery lists will come under new scrutiny as we look for ways to stretch our money further.
Psychologically, human beings create habits and routines as a way to reduce the number of decisions we make on a daily basis. Just think about your morning routine; we tend to get up at the same time, take the same route to work, make our signature morning drink of choice, sit at the same place at the dinner table, etc. Rather than having to decide how to live each moment afresh, we often navigate our lives using a simple strategy: (a) choose whatever we chose before, and (b) organize our lives in such a way that we are faced with the same choices, over and over again.
But there is a dark side to routine. Too much routine can lock us into rigid patterns of thinking and behaviors. We can lose our ability to question and adapt.
New Year’s resolution for businesses
What about businesses? What New Year’s resolutions should your business make in 2023? Most CFO’s will have already reviewed contracts with suppliers to make sure that these are delivering the best deal possible. Procurement will have looked at ways to shave spend and make cut backs to keep within budgets. There are bigger opportunities for change that will require that courage to make the change.
“The price of doing the same old thing is far higher than the price of change.” —Bill Clinton
