Making and Keeping New Years Resolutions
The big take aways:
Think S.M.A.R.T. - specific, measurable, achievable, result focused and time bound. When we have none of these in place our goals tend to sound like “I’m going to lose weight”; with no plan or specifics in place. And then we fail.
Don’t make it immediate. “I’m going to stop eating gluten tomorrow”. Goals should be gradual. The goal is progress, NOT perfection.
New Years activites I do with my kids to involve them in goal setting are to create a “Year in Review” from a free download by thirtyhandmadedays.com
We have used this template for many years and hopefully I will do well at keeping track of them to keep for when they get older!
