Many people find themselves making steadfast promises to themselves in January only to falter on them come February. Arm yourself with these tips to help you stick to your ambitions all year long.
While it’s good to set high standards for yourself, if you make goals that are too far-fetched you’ll be hard-pressed to reach them. Instead, start with small goals and add more each month.
Talk About It
An effective way of staying on track with your goals is to talk about your progress regularly with friends and/or family members. You can also keep a journal or online blog that records your experience, while holding you accountable to your resolutions.
Don’t Give Up
Sometimes people go into New Year’s resolutions with an all-or-nothing attitude. But you have to give yourself some wiggle room and plenty of forgiveness to succeed in the long-run. Remind yourself that a perfect record is not what a resolution is about. If you slip up, start again the next day. There’s no need to give up and wait until the next New Year to start making positive life changes.
Happy New Year from all of us here at Sanderson Ford! And good luck on your goals for 2018.
