It’s the season for new year resolutions but what happens after the excitement drowns after few days of the celebration. Most of us set resolutions because we believe doing this can make our lives and careers better but what measures are you putting in place to ensure these goals you set are met?
Here is a guide on how to stay true to your New Year Resolutions with ease.
1: Break your goal into small achievable steps
Break them down, sis! Break your goals down into smaller steps! This is your best route to getting things done! Having a massive goal for the year can be daunting. Taking on too much too quickly is a common reason why so many New Year’s resolutions fail. Many of us set unrealistic goals out of excitement for the new year then find it challenging to get them done. If you ever feel this way, break down your goal into smaller, simpler steps. Focus on taking tiny steps that will ultimately help you reach your larger goal and the sense of completion and accomplishment that comes with achieving them will push and motivate you to keep going.
2: Write Your goals down
Writing your goals down is the perfect way to kickstart your resolution. Write your goals down and keep your eyes fixed on them. Writing your goals down helps you visualize them and this, in turn, gives you the confidence, clarity, and motivation to take the daily steps needed to achieve your personal goals and professional goals and you are also constantly reminded of what has been achieved and what needs to be done.
3: Keep track of your progress
To stay committed to achieving your goals, you need to find ways to measure, track, and feel good about the progress you make daily. Although keeping a mental note may seem like the easiest route, it often doesn’t help you get your work done. Try Using your phone, which has been proven to be one of the best ways to keep track of anything, including goals. There are apps made specifically for tracking goals that are easily accessible on your phone and they can help stay accountable. The more you feel a sense of progress. The more motivated and productive you are.
As you hit your goals, celebrate your little wins! Also, let your sense of accomplishment fuel your healthy habits and you will be proud of how much you have achieved by the end of the year.
