New Year’s Resolutions: How to Make Them So You Can Keep Them

This will be the fourth year in a row Betty has made a New Year’s Resolution to exercise more. She’s also vowed to lose weight (an annual resolution since 1996), and to finally start that novel (this one goes all the way back to the 80s.) What goes wrong?

Betty’s problem and the difficulty most people face in keeping their resolutions is that changing behavior involves more than simply vowing to do so. A lot more. So, whether you want to do more or less of something, quit something altogether or start something new, here are a few tips that can help.

1. Be sure the change you vow to make is something you really want, not just something you think you should do or something you’re doing for someone else. Altering habits is hard work; if you’re not going after something you really want, you set yourself up for failure.

2. Be specific. Instead of vowing to “lose weight,” be specific: five pounds by March 15. Vague words like “more,” “better” or “less” don’t give you a toehold to measure against. State your goal in incremental, measurable, specific terms. Be certain it’s attainable, too. To go from a sitting position to running a marathon in six weeks may be too long a distance to travel in that short a time.

Taking Stock of Your Life

As we step through the doorway from one year to the next, it’s natural to look back as well as ahead. But what if instead, a person used the first part of the year to take stock of his or her life?

Who are you? What do you believe? What do you really need?

When we discover who we really are, we stop living on auto-pilot and start to live with intention, focus and purpose. Our choices become clearer. We begin to make active choices in our life, instead of making excuses or passively living with the status quo.

Here are a few questions to get you started. Have a journal or some way to record your thoughts. (Writing by hand keeps you in touch with your breath and your heart.)

•What is aching to be expressed?

•What needs healing?

•What unique gifts, talents and skills do you bring to the world? How are you using them (or not)?

The Road Ahead: What Will You Do Differently This Year?

Tips on how to discover and implement the vital changes that will boost your business this year.

Changing the way things are done in a business can bring opportunities for great success. But reaction to change may be fearful and irrational, which can result in failures, a decrease in quality and a loss of production.

When it comes to work and business, it can be tempting to give in to those anxieties by doing what's always been done. But priming the pump to have a better year always involves some form of adjustment to free up the time, money and energy to tackle new opportunities.

How does one decide what changes are the most important ones to make?

Ask yourself these questions:

1. What personal and business tolerations interfered with personal and work progress? Tolerations are a good indication of issues in need of resolution.

Top 10 Ways to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

Keeping New Year’s Resolutions is a challenge for most everyone. Here are 10 strategies that can help.

Did you have trouble keeping your New Year’s Resolutions? You’re not alone. Most people who make resolutions fail to keep them. Here are ten ways to make and keep New Year’s Resolutions—or any changes in your life.

1. Make resolutions you care about. Be certain the change you want to make really matters to you, and that it’s not just something you think you “should” do.

2. Be specific and concrete. Not “I want to lose weight” but “I want to lose five pounds by March 15.” State your goals in measurable and attainable terms.

3. Make the time. If you want to exercise three times a week, write the dates and times in your calendar.

4. Easy does it. Start slowly. Don’t expect to run a marathon by February if you can’t make six miles now.

Top 10 Ways to Start (and Maintain) a Good New Year

How can a person start having a good year? Isn’t that easier said than done? These ten tips show how to begin.

Redeem Article

The best way to have a good year is by living life on a daily basis, letting the good days accumulate, one by one. And it doesn’t have to be New Year’s to resolve to have a good year. Start anytime. Today, for instance.

1. Take time, slow down. Be present in your life and mindful of the present.

2. Care for your body, eat well, exercise, treat yourself to loving, nurturing self-care.

3. Spend quality time with family and friends. Communicate, keep in touch. Say I love you. Tell people you appreciate them.

4. Take time throughout the day to renew yourself. Take a walk, read a poem or a good book, listen to music (really listen); bring beauty into your life. On a monthly basis, take a whole day for yourself — play, treat yourself to something you want to do; retreat from your daily life. Mark these special days on your calendar (in ink) so you’ll be certain to take them.

The end of the year is not just a time to prepare for the next year. It’s also a great time to take stock of this one.

Redeem Article

As the year speeds to its end, we begin to mentally prepare for next year. But don’t forget to take time to assess your personal and professional challenges and accomplishments THIS year. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
