As the last 3 days of 2015 draw upon us, a lot of us are trying to figure out a New Years Resolution for 2016. How many of you can count on a single hand the times you have actually followed through with a New Years resolution? I can vouch for myself that I usually forget my goals that I make within the first quarter of the year. Most of us try to accomplish our resolution in the first few weeks of the year but then fail to continue following those goals.
A basic New Years resolution is easily forgotten, so why not try to make a resolution that needs sometime to be established. A New Years resolution should not just be a one day thing it should be a journey that makes you into a better person in the long-run. Some resolutions require you to set up a bunch of little goals in order to achieve that bigger resolution. Those smaller goals can be a benchmark tool to help you reach the end gain without you forgetting
Lets try to ditch these open-ended New Years goals and give them more structure because lets face it we make the same resolutions ever year and about 2 months in they do not even exist anymore.
Open-ended New Years Goals:
- Lose Weight
- Eat Healthy
- Work Harder
- Save Money
- Go to Sleep Earlier
More Structured New Years Goals:
- Gain “x” amount of muscle every month
- Eat 1 cup of raw leafy vegetables
- Wake up earlier to go to the gym
- Put “x” amount of dollars in retirement a month
- Leave all electronic devices outside your room
I hope you all end 2015 on a high note and start 2016 on an even higher note.
