New Years Resolutions Vs. Yearly Goals
Do you make New Years Resolutions each year? I know that many people have given up on New Years Resolutions because they claim they are useless and in a way they are. The problem with New Years Resolutions is that often they are not thought out.
However, New Years Resolutions can be very effective if they are looked at as goals. In order to ensure you reach a goal, you must devise a plan of action, you must set deadlines, determine steps that must be taken and then put that plan into action.
Every year I set yearly goals, I also devise a plan to reach those goals, determine steps that must be taken and set deadlines for each step and for reaching the final goal. I also break these goals up by month and make sure that on each of my monthly goals lists, that there are steps that will help me to reach my yearly goals.
These I record in my Home Management Notebook and I refer to these goals when I am writing both my weekly and daily to do lists.
If you have made New Years Resolutions in the past and are frustrated about not reaching them, I challenge you to try this year to make the change of writing yearly goals instead. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the end results!
