People who explicitly make resolutions are ten times more likely to succeed at their goals than those who do not.
1. Narrow down your goal.
Write out a list of everything you want to accomplish this year. Group and prioritize your goals and select one or two that will have the most impact on your year.
2. Does your goal match your energy?
Does it make you want to jump out of bed in the morning ready to go? Is it truly yours? Or are you influenced by what you think others want you to do or be?
Think of two mini goals you can achieve in the next 60 days that can contribute to your overall goal for the year. Then break down all of the tasks you need to complete the mini goal.
4. Add the tasks to your calendar.
Look at your tasks and decide whether these are daily, weekly or monthly items. Then, go into your calendar and schedule time for these just as if it were a meeting or doctor’s appointment.
5. Do not let excuses keep you in your comfort zone.
The biggest reason we don’t achieve our goals is because obstacles come up and we have to have a plan on how you will overcome them and stick to it. Growth does not come from our comfort zones.
