Happy New Year ! For many of us a new year is a fresh start and an opportunity to try something new or to recommit to those tasks you put on hold.
When we talk about the new year, a question that often pops up is "what is your New Year’s resolution this year?" The most common responses you find include: lose weight, find a new job or save money. A New Year resolution is often set with much promise to begin with, but what happens after you’ve made that decision? How do you carry it out?
Once you are clear on what you New Year’s resolutions will be it is important to then set measurable and achievable goals. Too often, people set goals that are unrealistic. Not only does this lead to frustration, but it also decreases the likelihood of actually achieving the goal. The S.M.A.R.T. method can be useful way to help you set realistic and measurable goals.
Finally, remember to enjoy the journey, success is made up of small victories along the way!
