It is that time of year again. Good old holiday season. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Besides for over indulging on cookies and pumpkin pie, there is something else that people are going to do in the upcoming months. People are going to start thinking of their new years resolutions. You know those goals and promises you make to yourself every year, only to falter and say “well there is always next year”. I am here to help you make sure your new year resolution not only stick and get achieved, but you exceed them beyond your wildest possibilities. But first thing is first:

STOP MAKING RESOLUTIONS!

goal settingI wrote awhile back on how you should cancel your new years resolution and make right now resolutions. I still believe that people should not save till the end (or beginning – depending on how you view it) of the year to set resolutions for themselves. You should be able to implement goals and changes anytime through your life. But something has changes in my mind since I wrote that post. I realize, I don’t believe in “resolutions”. I did a Google search of the definition of the word and got quite a few definitions, from music to computers. But here is the definition that I want to focus on:

“a decision to do something or to behave in a certain manner; “he always wrote down his New Year’s resolutions”

Most people have great intentions on making their resolutions, but for the most part, the stick to the definition. They make a decision. Which is great. The consciously decide that they need to change something they are doing and want to go for it. That is honestly the first BIG step in making changes. But then here is where everyone falls short: They don’t have a plan. They don’t take the action. Some don’t even have goals. How do you expect to complete your “resolutions” if you honestly don’t know what you are shooting for?

This year, I want you to do something totally different. Don’t make new year resolutions. Don’t even let the word cross your mind! Make new year goals. Make a new year plan. Write it down. Write out milestones. Write out check points in the upcoming year where you can check yourself and see how your goals are doing.

Set High Goals This Year

No more of setting the same goal you had last year. How many years have you actually had the same goal? There is an old saying that if you keep doing what you have always done, you will always get what you always got. Basically, if you aren’t moving forward, you aren’t moving anywhere. So this year, do something different. Don’t make the same goals as previous years. Really think about something you want to accomplish.
