I don’t make New Year’s resolution. I also know the statistics on those of you who do, that you’re bound to revert to your old ways within 60 days. In the pre-dawn hours at 24 Hour Fitness I see the “resolutionists” arrive this week – some even have the nerve of using “my” machine when I need it. Then I remember, they’ll be gone in six weeks, so let it go.
What I do make in January is a goal list. I realize that I can write down my goals and keep them close to my heart so I will accomplish them within the year. If I don’t, then I know I can keep them for 2011! I make this list and check it twice a day – in the morning and then at the end of the day to see what I’ve accomplished, how many steps I need to take to accomplish them, and how I feel about myself after I can cross off the goal.
A few goals: 1.) Get four articles published by June 2010 2.) Reduce my debt by 50 percent. 3.) Acquire two new long-term – six-twelve months – clients. 4.) Keep my weight where it is today. 5.) Re-connect with an old friend and stay connected. 6.) Finish my booklet.
You can see that these goals are attainable – for me they are. Have you written down your goals for this year? If not, start today. If so, check the list twice – in the a.m. and the p.m. It’s a great incentive to keep you on track.
Happy Goal Setting!
