"Happy New Year, Mindy! Everyone probably has a list of what goals they want to achieve this New Year. I have my own, too, but it seems like it's very hard to follow through the resolutions I set year in and year out. It's so frustrating! Any tips on how I can really see through my goals? Thanks! - Carlo"
Happy New Year, too, Carlo!
Seeing through New Year's resolutions can be a bit challenging for everyone. Either we all end up checking just a few items off the list, or we never get around to doing anything at all.
I think the best way to go about this is to set realistic goals. Prioritize which ones are the most important and set a time frame for each item.
It is also helps a lot if you set goals that are of value to you, not just those that are “generic” like going on a diet. If you really need to aim for something like that, make sure you list down concrete ways, which you really see yourself committing to. For instance, if you want to get into healthy eating, try starting out with something like “Limit junk food consumption to only twice a month.”
Remember: don't list down too many, as that may be too overwhelming for you to commit to.
Have a great, new year!
