New Year Resolution’s: How to Keep Them for 2011
With 2010 coming to a close, many of you are writing down your new year’s resolutions and making promises to stick with them. Of course, a lot of us procrastinate and completely disregard our resolutions, only to make the same promises for the next new year. It’s a never ending cycle! Here are some ways to keep yours for the new 2011 year:
- Write them down: Take some time to write down your resolutions. It brings you one step closer to achieving them when you put it in words. Keep the list with you in your wallet or purse so easy reference.
- Recite them: Repetition comes in handy when you want to ingrain something in your memory bank. Recite your resolutions out loud makes your goals more realistic.
- Aim Low: If you aren’t the most ambitious person, don’t try to do too much at one time, that is a guaranteed way to fail. Try and pick one achievable goal and set a time frame for which you want to accomplish it. Once you have your goal, don’t rush, but don’t procrastinate. Take it one step at a time!
- Tell people your goals: It’s a great way to start a support system by having people to push you in the right direction when you get off track. Having a trustworthy friend or family member to confide in makes the process a lot easier!
