Whenever it’s getting close to the beginning of a New Year, people make plans to have resolutions they would use in the New Year. These resolutions serve as a check and guide into achieving set goals in that particular year. There’s one thing in making resolutions and there’s another in accomplishing them.
How To Accomplish Your New Year Resolutions
REFLECT ON YOURSELF
To make realistic resolutions, look at the past year and the resolutions you set for yourself the previous year, did you accomplish them? If yes, good but if no, there’s room for improvement. Think about the things you would have loved to change about yourself and the things that matter to you and write them down. When you write them down, it becomes more real to you. So look back and ascertain those things you want to work on in any area of your life. That’s the first step to take.
LOOK AT THE FINISH LINE
When making resolutions, look at the end in sight. Imagine the things you would have accomplished by fulfilling those resolutions. Do not be myopic but look beyond the ‘now.’
SET RESOLUTIONS YOU CAN KEEP
If you set resolutions that are impossible to keep, then you’ll find it hard fulfilling them. They should be within your control so it’s easy to fulfill. Nobody is going to help you do this so put this into consideration when making yours.
WRITE THEM DOWN
Do not just visualise your resolutions but put them in writing. When you do this, you know you have some tasks ahead of you to fulfill and makes it easier for you to remember them.
Start with the most important by arranging them in order of priority. Some resolutions would definitely mean more to you than others so bear this in mind when making them.
Making resolutions and seeing them come alive are two different things. A lot of people make resolutions at the start of a new year and at the end of that year, they may not have accomplished even half of it. It’s easier said than done that is why you need to make a conscious effort to ensure that you carry it all out and complete what is on your list.
LET THEM BE TIME BOUND
When making your resolutions, you can attach a time frame you feel you’ll complete them to each resolution. This should help hasten you up and make you more serious about it.
As you fulfill each resolution, make a tick on your list so you know what is left for you to do and reward yourself. Appreciate yourself for the milestone you have reached no matter how little it is.
Resolutions are good and not very difficult to prepare. They help you become a better you and if you can stick to them and be dedicated to achieving them, you’ll have them.
I wish you all the best in preparing your resolutions.
