New Year’s resolutions go hand in hand with January 1st. It’s a great time to begin or restart a journey to lifelong transformation and Optimal Wellbeing™ and move forward with renewed resolve!
Think of a New Year’s resolution as nothing more than setting a goal. Write it down, so it feels concrete. Plan it out, so you have a strategy for attacking it. And keep it real, so you set yourself up for success. Too many resolutions fall by the wayside because they couldn’t be tackled with small, manageable steps.
Set achievable goals by using SMART objectives.
SMART stands for:
Specific — The more detailed and targeted your description, the better your chance to achieve your goal.
Measurable — Break your goal down into quantifiable elements for concrete evidence that you’ve met your objective.
Attainable — Is it possible to meet this goal? Think about the steps you’ll need to take to make it happen.
Relevant — Appreciate the importance of what you’re doing: beginning a lifelong journey of establishing good health and achieving optimal wellness.
Timely — Set a deadline. Specify when your results will be achieved. It will give you the focus and sense of urgency to make your goal a reality.
