By mid February, 80% of people will abandon their New Year’s resolutions. Here are some suggestions to help you keep them, both at work and at home.
Write it down! Studies show that the process of writing down your goals will make you more likely to achieve them. Go a step further and create a timeline with incremental steps to achieve your goal: In January, I will go to the gym once per week, in February, I will go Mondays and Wednesday, by March you can will be going 3 x week, your goal!
Make declarations not resolutions! “I will learn to play the piano”, “I will get my networking certification and move up to senior engineer position this year”
Create a team of support around you. It doesn’t take more than a couple of friends of colleagues who you text regularly and report your progress. Having others keep you accountable, praise you, and give you the occasional, needed, motivational kick in the behind to keep you on track.
Have fun! Want to exercise more? Do it outside or invite a friend! Want to learn cooking? Join a class for a specific cuisine! Want to do better at your job? Get training with a colleague, add music to your office or find something that will encourage you to spend the time to put more effort at work
One step at a time: small changes add up to big wins! Break down change into small, achievable goals and simply aim to be better today than you were yesterday, and the results will show!
