With every new year comes a some resolution we all attempt to follow but never actually follow it at least 14 days into the new year. So, what’s the issue at hand with these new year resolutions? Well, some of them are never really realistic. For example, “I want to loose 4 dress sizes in the first 30 days” or “I’m going to stop eating junk food.” Needless to say, all of these new year resolutions we come up with could be possible to achieve, but, the problem is we MUST be realistic when setting these goals and aspirations.
Now, I’m extremely guilty of buying a planner every year and setting my goal to be more organized and complete my homework assignments on time or even in advanced. Yet, what I’ve learned is that:
- NEVER attempt to repeat the same exact goal every new year. Aim for the stars honey!
- If the goal works out.. Great PUSH yourself throughout the entire year. Don’t quit just because the first 90 days of the year is gone!
- Stick to it! Don’t become distracted!
- Don’t become discouraged by what others are doing because it will only lead to you not completing your goal.
- BE REALISTIC !
With that being said, buying a planner didn’t work out for me. Last fall, I’ve learned that buying a white board, placing it my room, allowed me to visually see what I had going on in my life and plan for it. There was no stupid planner that could have worked better than that colorful white board of mine. Be mindful that different things work for different people.
