Keeping New Year's Resolutions

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 31, 2012

Are you sitting with friends around your apartment in Glen Allen, VA trying to make your New Year’s Resolutions? Everyone makes New Year’s resolutions, but 85% of the time, the goals that are made on New Year’s Eve are not achieved. Why? Maybe the goals are too lofty, but most likely it is because you have not made a plan to achieve those goals.

There is a right way and a wrong way to make a New Year's resolution. Here are a few tips to help you achieve your goals:

1. Tell your Friends

When you have a goal, and others are aware of that goal, they can help you achieve it. Often, one of your friends has the same goal, so they can join you. So, after you make your resolution, tell your friends in your apartment in Roanoke, VA about it.

2. Make a Plan immediately

Setting a goal without a plan is really just wishful thinking. In order for your resolution to have resolve, you have to have a plan to put it into action. If you're like most people, then you'll have a limited window of opportunity during the first few days of January to harness your motivation. After that, most people forget their resolutions completely.

3. Write Down Your Resolution and Plan

Formulate a plan, which you can stick to. It is always best to write your goals down, commit to your resolution and plan.

4. Be flexible and think long term

Nothing big gets accomplished in one day. New Year's resolutions are only a starting point. You have to revisit your plan. Give yourself reminders to work on your goals. But you also need to expect that your plan can and will change. You need to be flexible as life interferes. Sometimes even the goal will change. Recognize each step of success the whole way.
