:New Year :New Goals :New Success

Some say that New Year’s resolutions are pointless. Some say they never last. Some say there's no point.

Well, guess what, that may be true for some, but it doesn't have to be true for you!

So, use the energy that comes with a new year. Use the energy, the motivation, that comes from everyone telling you, “you can’t do it”. Use that as your fuel. Use that fuel to keep you going. Keep going into February, March, April. Keep going into Summer, into Fall, Winter. Before you know it, that resolution won't be a resolution. It will be a behavior and part of who you are.

:Deep, right?


Time to be real too!

It won’t be easy. So, here’s a few quick tips to help you out:

Write down your goals. You can post the list on fridge, above your desk, or tuck it under your mattress. But, sometimes, just getting them on paper is motivating. I don't know. It's magic

Get a partner. When you have partner, you're accountable. You can push them and they can push you. Can you say mutually beneficial? Perfecto.

Be realistic. There's no need setting yourself up to be disappointed if you don't reach your goal. BUT, if you set a goal that you can (realistically) attain...ah, how sweet is that?

Surround yourself with supporters. Self-explanatory. This is the best piece of advice anyone could offer. So, let's end there…

: Go forth.
