Are you the kind of person who
a> Makes resolutions but does not keep them?
b> Makes resolutions but they are the same as last years?
c> Does not believe in resolutions and hence does not make them
d> Makes resolutions and keeps them for a little while
e> Makes resolutions but follows it throughout the year
I am the last kind. I make resolutions and I follow them throughout the year. I believe in resolutions but not just on New years. Resolutions can be made starting NOW. You don't have to wait for a new year or a new day. I believe those are just excuses to procrastinate.
If you have answered a> it means you do want to improve yourself. But you probably need a little push. Try going public with your resoluton where people will ask you about it. This way you will be forced to follow
If you have answered b> then it means your goals are too hard. You need to break them down into smaller bits. Example: Rather than saying I will write a book this year, say I will write 500 words a day for the next 5 days. Once that is achieved, revisit.
If you have answered c> it could be that you are skeptical or super-organised! You don't need to read this post :)
If you have answered d> it means you try but give up at the first sign of hardship. try rewarding yourself whatever goal you have achieved. There are many apps that help you achieve that.
If have answered e> then you are like me! You should be sharing your tips on your own blog or in the comment box below :)
Jan 2nd is a great date to make resolutions. Start NOW. Make smaller goals. Reward yourself. Share with those who truly care.
And if you have failed, it's okay. At least you have tried.
New post tomorrow. (I am doing a blog Marathon for a month and today is Day 18)
Ps: Check out my new book. It's been getting rave reviews
