Enter the theme. A theme essentially is a broad goal for the year. It's left vague so that almost anything you do fits in with it.
For example: this may be the Year of Health. Objectives could be signing up and going to a gym or being conscious about eating healthy or sitting down with a PCP and look at your numbers. Perhaps you've held off on having something looked at. Perhaps you're already being treated for something and this is the year to double down on efforts and beat it once and for all.
What about progress? Well, you get out what you put in, but the theme still allows you to claim a victory. Say you're a sedentary person and have not set foot in a gym in years. You sign up and resolve to go workout 3x/week. At the end of the year, you only averaged probably 10x/month...that's still more than last year so, go you!
I declare the year 2022 to be Year of Learning. I already know I want to get a couple of certifications under my belt to pad my resume, but I'm also looking into getting certifications related to health (for example, getting my CrossFit L1 coach). So although the CFL1 is the only specific one, I'm gonna let the year guide me as it progresses. Maybe this will be the year I decide to take network classes or perhaps I get higher Agile certifications. Perhaps over summer I get motivated and sign up to learn Python or C++...I don't know and that's why the theme works.
*For what it's worth, there's only one resolution I've kept going since 2018: no fast food whatsoever. It's been 4 years since I've bought anything at McD, BK, Wendy's, KFC, etc...and I gotta tell you, I've come close to breaking it many times but there's something to having kept going for years that immediately makes me reconsider and move on. Not even "cheat days" or "cheat weeks".
