Tis the time of they year, when many professionals start making resolutions. Okay, for the sake of this exercise in futility, let's take a few minutes to write down all the things we resolve to do in 2010! Loose weight? That's a good one. Make more money? Spend more time with the fam? Cool!! Looking good. Keep writing, keep writing. Done? Good!!!

The next step is easy. Read it. Wad it. Toss it. You have quickly, effortlessly and painlessly placed where our resolutions generally wind up. And, you did not have to spend a small fortune at the gym! As great as making resolutions may sound, they are nothing more than lies we tell our selves and our families.

Are you really serious about loosing the pounds? Doing more deals? Getting balance in your life? Start setting goals. 

Clearly defined goals work where resolutions fail. By clearly articulating in writing what you want to achieve moves the process out of the realm of mere wishful thinking. Be realistic. Now is not the time to engage in "Pie-in-the-sky thinking.

Below each goal, include the steps you will need to take. Do you need help? Do I need to purchase anything? Do I need to outsource? Include everything. This will take some time, introspection, and effort.

Place these in Your Space. Reading and visualizing your goals on a daily basis is important to help keep you focused. I successfully completed 9 out of 10 major goals last year by using this process. I wish is that you fare much better - 10 for 10.

Every now and then I have to toss in my 2¢'s worth. Good luck in 2010 ~ ☺☺☺

It's been over thirty years since I made New Year's resolutions. I quit when I started creating five-year plans and then working those five-year plans persistently and consistently. Never had a need for New Year's resolutions after that.
