As we reflect on the previous year, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about what lies ahead in 2019. No matter what your new year’s ambitions may be, we’ve put together some steps to help you be successful and accomplish all your goals.
After the confetti of the new year settles, sit down and ask yourself what you would like to achieve in 2019. Be honest and consider resolutions that are realistic and attainable within a year time span.
After you’ve decided, categorize your goals by how long they will take to accomplish. If your resolution is a yearlong endeavor, such as reading more frequently or getting your home organized, break it down by vowing to read one book per month or organize one room every month.
Once you have a realistic timeline in mind, map out your plan in a calendar or to-do list. Not only will this help hold you accountable and see ahead, but you will feel even more accomplished once you cross one of your goals off your list.
As we all know, half the battle of New Year’s resolutions is keeping them going. For most people, it can take more than 2 months to develop a new habit. Be sure to stick with your new routine for at least three months, and before you know it, it will feel like less of a chore and part of your daily life.
Don’t forget to recognize your hard work! Staying motivated can be difficult so it’s important to celebrate your accomplishments by creating monthly rewards for yourself, spending time with the people supporting you, and more.
By following these steps, we hope you can reach all your 2019 aspirations!
