New Year’s Resolutions
No doubt New Year’s resolutions would be far less popular were they not motivated by the inevitable overindulgence of the holidays. We continue to eat and drink more after Thanksgiving, and before we contemplate getting back to the gym, we are consumed by the Christmas rush and only to find our financial accounts deflated, our waistlines inflated, and suddenly it’s the beginning of a new year.
Resolution Failure Rate
Let’s be honest. From the most popular, you will find losing weight to getting healthy or spending less and saving more — 36% of people will abandon their resolutions before February 1st.
Yikes! No wonder, one in four people make the same resolution every year and fail to achieve it.
Goals are Everything
You don’t have to be a part of that statistic! You just need the right strategies. Each week, I will post applicable and practical tips from my Goals Are Everything infographic to help you finish forward in 2014.
1. What is your one big goal for 2014?
2. Write it down.
3. Be specific.
Whether or not you make resolutions, New Year’s Day provides a catalyst to take inventory of the year gone by and catapults the one to come. Forget the resolutions and make New Year Goals instead. Happy New Year!
