This recurring ritual goes back to the ancient Romans. Every year on New Year's Day they celebrated the God of a new beginning, Janus, in a ceremony. That January is named January does not come from somewhere. This God had two faces - one that looks into the past and one that looks into the future. So when we make resolutions, it is always a conscious reflection of the past. Thus self-optimization is not a trend of modern times, but also the Romans have already done this in a weakened form. But where does this desire to improve oneself come from? Psychologists believe that two factors are responsible for this: 1. a certain degree of perfectionism that every human being possesses (admittedly - some more, others less) and a tendency to compare oneself with others. By comparing ourselves, we see where we stand, what we are good at and what we are not good at. Our self-esteem depends on it. Basically, a New Year's resolution is nothing more than an attempt to improve self-esteem.
So are New Year's resolutions useless?
Hygge means as much as well-being - we want more of that
Of course it is important for us to make progress on the market level and to further develop ourselves as a company in the international market. It is therefore all the more important that everyone pulls together to achieve these goals. Often you notice that the personal level falls by the wayside because of all the work. We at BULLAZO have therefore set ourselves the goal of holding at least one team evening every month. The Danish philosophy of life Hygge takes up this thought - positivity through cosiness, relaxed atmosphere and get-togethers.
Last but not least, we also think about what set you back last year and why there were difficulties. Our motto: Which StartUp can claim that all deadlines were met for the most part? To be honest, of course we are also affected. That is why another resolution for this year is that we want to better meet our deadlines. What can be done to make this happen? 1. Mutual control and more intensive internal communication can help us to stick better to agreements. 2. Divide a larger project into small steps so that they seem more "manageable".
