Do you keep your resolutions?

Five Tips for Setting Attainable Goals

For many people, making resolutions is hard and keeping them even harder. By taking some time to reflect upon what’s truly important to you, you can set yourself on the path to success with resolutions you can keep in the new year. Here are some ideas that may help:

  1. Keep your resolutions short-term, attainable and quantifiable. Focus on one or two tangible goals; don’t overwhelm yourself with an entire lifestyle change. For example, if you’re interested in getting a new job, resolve to update your LinkedIn profile or become active in a professional network.
  2. Work on things you can control. In order to change the numbers on the scale, focus on the things you can control such as what you eat and how often you go to the gym.
  3. Make yourself a priority. Self-care isn’t selfish. Making changes for a healthier you will benefit your whole family. Don’t feel guilty about choosing some goals that are relevant to you and will positively impact your happiness and lifestyle.
  4. Join forces with a friend. Create a support network to keep you motivated and on track. You’re more likely to be successful if you aren’t going it alone.
  5. Forgive your mistakes and develop a back-up plan. There will likely be bumps in the road. If something gets in your way or you slip up, don’t give up entirely. Just create a plan to get back on course.
