When thinking on the tradition of making a new year's resolution, I came up with one that I finally feel will work...not only for me, but others. And it's simple.
First off, most people end up letting their resolutions and goals fall to way-side because they either get overwhelmed or loose motivation.
My resolution is helping me conquer my lack of motivation and even starting to increase it daily.
Here it is...
Set a goal/resolution per day, meet it, than set another.
Any goal, no matter how small or trivial. A couple of mine were wear make-up and play my video game (me time!!).
Sometimes there are circumstances that keep you from completing your goal, but be HONEST with yourself on this...was it really out of your control or did your "find" some to use as an excuse.
This resolution can easily be used for weekly and monthly goals.
Since I started this, I have found I'm more motivated to do stuff after I get my first goal completed...even if I do not set another, I still end up getting more done for the day. It's great, because I feel accomplished...not crappy thinking I wasted my day.
I know this idea will help me work towards more ultimate resolutions like loosing weight and completing personal projects.
