I haven't posted in awhile, so I thought I'd mention that I usually (like so many people) put together some resolutions for the coming year during this interim time of reflection between Christmas and New Years.
But, I recently watched a motivational speaker who challenged me to do things a little differently this year. I can't remember who he was (watched a clip on Facebook probably haha), but his message sure sunk in.
He said to quickly write down 10 goals you want to meet this coming year - don't let up until you reach 10 no matter how small some might be. Let it pour out of you onto the paper.
Then, looking at your list, choose only the one that seems most important for you to reach.
Next, start outlining exactly what steps you need to do to reach that one goal, and put those steps on your brand new 2010 calendar - the when, where and how to reach your goal..
Keep the list to refer back to for your next goal.
Resolutions = vague things like lose weight, stop smoking, etc....without a well thought out plan of attack.
Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.
Most resolutions will be broken by mid January like so many others over the years.
So, set goals this year and make your plan on how to actually reach them!
I know I am.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!
