resolutions


Happy 2012!  The beginning of a new year brings new adventures and opportunities!  Many see this as a fresh start and a time to set resolutions and goals for the year to come.  Traditionally, a "New Year's resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more lasting personal goals, projects or the reforming of a habit."  Sometimes it can be hard to stick with your resolutions for the duration of the year.  This year I plan to write down my resolutions and put them in a place where I will see them each day (maybe frame them on my desk).  This will serve as a constant reminder of the goals I set to accomplish this year!

Here's to a lovely 2012!

9 tips to making and keeping your resolutions:

1. Don't make a Resolution for the wrong reasons - because it is something you really, really want to change.

2. Go for "juicy" - sweet, juicy, amazing - something that will feel fantastic when you get there.

3. State your Resolution as a goal - a specific and measurable goal that is detailed and specific.

4. Quit before you start - look for things you can stop doing that are getting in the way of your resolution.

5. Make an action plan - write down the steps to reach your goal.  Then, take the first step!

6. Get an accountability buddy - someone to hold you accountable for what you set out to do.

7. Tell everyone you know - supporters have kind words, resources and referrals to help you out.

8. Treat yourself like a dog - celebrate every step of this journey, and pat yourself on the back.

9. Set yourself up for success by starting NOW - the first two weeks of the New Year are the perfect time to put your plan into action!

Will you be setting any New Year's resolutions this year?
