Do you remember what your New Year’s Resolution was for 2011? Did you follow through to achievement or abandon it somewhere between February and June like 90+ percent of the population?
If you were successful with your Resolution, chances are you wrote it down and had a plan like we talked about last week with SMART goals. If you were not successful, why not? What derailed you in the process?
Resolutions are like Goals. They are a personal commitment to self improvement. But in order to be a successful Resolution, it must be relevant to you and it must have a well defined foundation. That foundation creates a structural support system so that you can take action and successfully achieve your Resolution and celebrate your success! What a great feeling to achieve something that you have identified as important for your self improvement.
Remember this; work SMARTer, not necessarily harder in the New Year! If you need help writing a SMART goal or developing a plan to support that goal, contact me. Good luck, Happy New Year, and may 2012 bring you great success!
