New Year Resolutions
It is that time of the year again. Most people at this time are thinking about what they would like to accomplish in the coming year. I think this is a good opportunity to think about what we would like to accomplish or how to become a better version of ourselves. But did you know, most resolutions are abandoned by February?
I am guilty of it too. My last year resolution was divided in three subcategories: Social, Personal and Financial. Although I did accomplish some of them, I think I would have fared better if I made them more specific.
Many times our goals are so broad that we can’t seem to figure out where to begin. If we think in general terms, we can’t measure our progress.
I think it is just as important to know why you want to do something as actually doing it. It can help us to stay motivated during those inevitable moments when we wish we were doing something else.
Here are some strategies that I find useful in setting goals:
Write them down
Set specific and measurable goals
Measure progress and reward yourself
What is your 2015 resolution?
I would love to hear from you!
P.S. I am still working on mine!
