Make your resolutions attainable

31 Dec

Well tomorrow is the beginning of another year. It is the time of year to come up with 3 , 5 or 7 fabulous statements of things that you will achieve in the next 365 days.

Do you remember last years resolutions? If you do, thats great!
Did you complete them? If you did thats wonderful!

Our new year resolutions are to often too big. Have you ever made a resolution to run a marathon but you have not ran since track in high school? Resolutions should be small pieces to the big picture. For example, if your big picture is to run a marathon, start with an attainable resolution of walking/jogging 2 to 3 times a week. This is still a big commitment, however it will not lead to complete failure mid-July when you have not opened your brand new box of Nike‘s you purchased on sale January 2nd. Instead you can admit you are behind, open the box, and go for a walk. That way at years end if you have accomplished to at least walking or jogging twice a week you can feel great about yourself and you can extend the resolution to making a hbit of jogging or running three times per week.

Isn’t that better than knowing it has been yet another year and you still have not ran that marathon.
