This Year I Resolve To… Making Resolutions That Stick

It’s a New Year, and people like to make resolutions.  Many people fall short on their self promises.  How can you keep with your goals this year?

  1. Write your goal down somewhere where you can see it fairly frequently to remind yourself of whaat you are working on.
  2. Break your goal down into small steps. Make each step easily achievable.  As your success builds you can take bigger steps.  If you like technology, use it to set reminders of what you’re working towards and to track your progress.
  3. Plan a time frame for each step.  If you are changing a behavior, work on each small step at least 30 days before adding more change.  Once each new habit is firmly established, then go to the next step.
  4. Celebrate each success along the way.

Happy New Year’s!
