There is nothing like making a goal and accomplishing that goal! With it being the beginning of the New Year many people are making resolutions to do something this year that they did not do in 2016, 2015 and if we are being honest what they did not in 2014! The problem with New Year resolutions is often times they do not make it to the month of March let alone the end of the year! Now that is not rich! In this post I am going to tell you guys how I composed my New Year resolution and how I stick to it.
- Fill the trashcan!
I know it might sound silly but it is so important. The first thing that I do is clean my room and organize my desk. This is a way for me to clear my mind and clearly see everything I want to accomplish in the upcoming year. Plus, it is nothing better than working in a clean room on a clean desk free of all junk and clutter. When I do this at the end of the year I can see all the things I wanted to do in the previous year and reflect on what I did do, what I did not do, what I no longer want or need in my life.
- Note to Self!
Once I have a clean work space I can sit down and make some notes to myself for the new year. Here is where I write out all my upcoming plans. This is very short and to the point using only keywords. Notes to yourself are like notes in class, only the main points!
In order to know how to achieve my goals I place them in categories. You know what I’m talking about, the health, fitness, education, etc. categories. These categories help me research and come in handy when I’m on Pinterest.
Now it is time for the details. I write down how I will specifically achieve every goal. Here is where I write out my daily plans to make sure that I achieve and stick to my New Year’s Resolution.
- Do It!!
Now this is how I go about composing my New Year’s resolutions. I like to hand write everything and keep the paper to refer to. I will most likely keep this on my desk so that I can see it every day. The Important thing that I have learned about making New Year’s resolutions is making sure that I can achieve them with simple lifestyle changes. These small lifestyle changes lead to positive changes in my life, which result in keeping my New Year’s resolutions and cultivating good habits! Now that is Rich!
Until next time with Richness,
