New Years Resolutions
I would like to keep my New Years resolutions next year. I know that my goals will be tough to keep, but I also feel that there has to be a way to stay on track for more than a week next year.
Your determination to keep your New Year’s Resolutions this year is admirable. Here are a few goal-setting tips to help you get started.
Don’t try everything at once. Don’t make lists and lists of resolutions. The more you make, the less you will keep. Try to make no more than five honest, sincere and realistically attainable resolutions.
For instance, making a New Year’s resolution that you will get married this year may not only be unattainable, but also entirely out of your control. Although you may want to get married it doesn’t necessarily mean you will meet someone to marry. The same can be said for resolutions such as having a baby or winning the lottery – these are not resolutions, they are hopes and dreams.
Word your goals carefully and make a plan. Once you know what your resolutions are, try to break it down. Nobody accomplishes anything of significance by trying to do it all at once. This doesn’t have to be a complicated agenda; just plan enough to give yourself a place to start.
