New Year’s Resolution Re-Start!
At this point in the year your New Year’s resolution may be a thing of the past, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick it back up again! It’s time for a Resolution Re-start! Here are some tips to help you start back up again and it keep it going!
Start off with small, attainable goals. If you don’t work out at all and want to start, begin with one or two days a week. Once you’ve mastered that, then add on more days. It’s better to work out one day a week than not work at all!
If your resolution is to be more productive this year, choose a reasonable goal to begin. Sending out 5 e-mails a day to new contacts may not be reasonable. Instead, start with reaching out to one new person a day, or three new people a week. If you have reasonable goals you are more likely to meet them. Once you do, you can increase your goals and build on what you have already established.
Start with Accountability:
Don’t go at it alone! Choose a colleague, family member, or friend to keep you accountable, or better yet choose one who has the same goal as you! If you have someone keeping you in check you are more likely to stick with it.
Start with Rewards:
How are you going to reward yourself when you meet your goal? Make sure you have a specific goal in mind and a specific reward when you meet it. Reward even your small victories! It’s the small victories that are the building blocks to success.
