This year when making your New Year’s resolutions why not try to implement a creative strategy. Experts tell us that the more the resolutions mean to us the better our chances of success. While the top resolutions include weight loss, new exercise routines and saving money, why not try something new this year? Perhaps spending more time with your family, taking a vacation, or just remembering birthdays!
To be successful at whatever goals you choose the planning is key. If your goal is to spend more time with family decide ahead of time exactly how you plan to implement. Maybe instituting a no tech night at your home, allowing time without cell phones and computers so that you can have some quality time at home. If your goal is to take a vacation, decide where you want to go, when and with who. Once you have the details in place you can begin taking steps to making it happen. If remembering birthdays is on your list of goals for 2016, begin by getting a calendar and writing the dates of those birthdays you wish to remember. Some calendars even have pockets where you can put birthday cards that you can buy ahead and store conveniently.
If you prefer a digital plan, smart phones not only have calendar functions where you can input the dates you want to remember, but you can also set reminders to allow you time to send a card or make that call.
Whatever New Year’s resolutions you make this year for greater success be sure and make a plan on how to keep them to increase your chance for success. You can end the year proud of your accomplishments and ready to add a few more next year.
