Are you making avoidable mistakes that have caused your New Year Resolutions to fall short?
Discover what subtle changes you can make that are proven to help you achieve success.
Many of us set goals in the coldest and darkest month of the year (in the Northern hemisphere), so if you don’t live in or plan on moving to Australia soon, let’s discuss how to get you on track with resolutions and goal setting in an already tough time of year.
If you missed my New Year’s Day presentation on goal setting, here’s a recap! We think about our outcome, maybe, I want to lose weight. We even try to be more specific with how much weight and by when and factor out how many pounds that is per week. However, we don’t always plan out the how. I’m going to eat healthy is vague and incredibly hard to measure and hold to for accountability. Spending some time on your step by step plan is crucial for success. Imagine a surgeon or a pilot without a detailed plan. Disaster. Imagine your own day with many moving parts without a plan. If you have kids with schedules and activities and a family to feed and manage, you may know all too well that if there is no plan, people are late, miss appointments and frequently miss healthy meals. Manage your individual goals as you would any of these examples to achieve the best possible outcome. Make a plan! Sure, add in some manifest destiny, but a plan is going to be the foundation or road map for what comes next.
I make it a point to never execute my plan on January 1, but use the month of January to pull together my ideas of what I want to accomplish in the upcoming year. I use a Vision Board, calendars, benchmarks and lists. Lots of lists! Don’t use up valuable mental energy trying to remember where you need to be or what needs to done when you can look at a list!
