Tips for Successful New Year’s Resolutions

December 30, 2011 at 8:40 am Leave a comment

1. Create a Plan
You know what your goal is but how are you going to accomplish it? The best way is to have a plan of what needs to be done to achieve this goal. Ask yourself, “What do I do next?” and “What steps do I need to take to complete this goal?”
2. Start NOW
Don’t wait too long to put your plan into motion. Start while you still have the motivation from the start of a new year.

3. Write it Down
Keep a notebook or journal to write down your goals, your plan on how to achieve them and your progress. This will help keep you on track–it’s motivating to see how far you’ve come!
4. Expectations
Rome wasn’t built in a day; don’t expect change to occur over night. Having realistic expectations will help you achieve your goals. Resolutions are just a starting point. Develop a ritual or a habit of reviewing your plan and making adjustments to your plan as life’s challenges occur.

5. Remember Life Happens
Expect that your plan can and will change. Be flexible! The goal itself does not need to change, but your plan may need a little tweaking. Recognize what you have accomplished on the path to your goal. Stay positive!
