1 st January 2017:- Time to kick off the New Year resolutions…..a new job or career path or diet plans or some new start ups and many more….
Many people might be busy in making New Year resolutions or reassessing old one. People usually get discouraged when, every year they make resolutions which they keep for only a few days or may be few weeks ……don’t get disheartened, you are not alone…
We all have good intensions behind every resolution or plan but something goes wrong and we fail to complete the plan. We do few common mistakes like ……
– We put huge pressure on ourselves during last week of December for New Year resolutions and focus on “WHAT” rather than “HOW”
– We get demoralized by previous attempts to make changes and tend to defend ourselves when other suggest some changes
– We think a lot about making changes, but also worry about the drawbacks. In short we have a fear of failure…
Here are few tips followed by successful resolution makers:
- Avoid preparing last minute plan of resolution; spend some time to think on goals/ achievements
- Remind yourself that you are already doing lot of things; it is very important to review all positive and negative sides of it.
- Spend some time on analyzing the strengths, weaknesses, skills, knowledge and abilities.
- Be specific about what you actually want to achieve and what will help you to get it
- Ask yourself; Is this my resolution plan or copying someone? Is this plan fit comfortably into factors like my work – life balance, priorities etc?
- Pictorial representation is a powerful technique in preparing the resolution plan. By visualization you can identify the pros and cons of all possibilities
- Prepare realistic goals and break it down into small manageable parts
- Rather than going alone; involve your family / friends into your plan; this will build a supportive and realistic environment for your plan
- After all January is not just kicking off the resolution; it’s all about putting all right building blocks in the right place for upcoming year. Keep in mind “Good things take time”
