29 Dec “3 LIFE-HACKS TO NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS THAT STICK”
The hands of time have brought us yet again to this place called New Year Festivities! It’s inevitable to not look back with either Wonder, Regret or Apathy at what’s transpired.
For the most part the New Year brings with it a heightened sense of wanting to get closer to family, a promotion, a healthier lifestyle among other things. And so it goes… the gyms are full of fervent souls ready for change in January only to be littered with all the hopes of those who’ve given up on their goals by mid February… again.
Have you ever made one of those short lived resolutions? I have too, we’re all on the same boat… nonetheless this year does not have to be the same.
Here are three quick Life-Hacks to ensure your resolution does not become another casualty of good intentions:
1. Write it Down: Make sure these big goals don’t stay somewhere in your mind but cement it on paper.
2. Break it Down: Most likely your goal will be ambitious so you’ll need to break it down into manageable pieces. For example, ask yourself “What can I accomplish this month en route to my big picture goal?” Small accomplishments will keep you on track.
3. Lock it Down: This piece is crucial and the only way to accomplish it is with someone else. If you don’t bring an accountability partner into the process chance are it’ll slip away. Have someone ensure you’re locked in and locked down.
