Wow, what happened to 2012? A blink of the eye and it’s over. What about all those things you wanted to accomplish? Did you get them done?
Well the New Year is here and now is the time to regroup. In front of you is a clean slate…a new beginning …a fresh start. So what do you want to accomplish this year?
Goals and resolutions should be clearly defined, specific, measurable, actionable and reachable. You want to make them a stretch, but not so far out there that you feel totally overwhelmed and give up trying to get there.
It certainly helps if you write them down and post them somewhere you’ll see them every day. It’s a bit of a reminder so you can keep them in front of you at all times.
Another way to help hold yourself accountable is to share them with someone else. Tell them what you plan to do and by when. Then this person can also help hold you accountable.
Where do you want to be this time next year? Envision how good it will feel knowing that you made it to your goal. Now that will be something to celebrate next New Years!
