New Year's Resolutions & Goals
With a new year comes new resolutions. Setting goals are a perfect way to help you be successful with your resolutions. Follow the guidelines below to improve your chances for success!
1. Set both short term and long term goals. Your long term goal can be something that you will reach in 1 month, 6 months or 12 months. Your short term goals should be smaller, easier goals that are stepping stones to helping you reach your long term goal.
2. Set up rewards. Your rewards should be equivalent to the goals you set (i.e. big rewards for long term goals and smaller rewards for short term goals). They should also align with your goals and not be counter intuitive. For example, if your goal is to lose 10 pounds, a good reward would be to buy a new outfit and a bad reward would be to eat a hot fudge sundae.
3. Use the SMART goals method. The SMART method makes it easier to know if you have achieved your goal. When you write your goals, make sure they contain the following information:
S - Specific - Make sure the goal is clear, not general.
M - Measurable - Can you measure where you are now and where you want to be?
A - Attainable - It should challenge you without being out of reach.
R - Relevant - Is it important to you? Is it something you can do?
T - Timely - When do you want to complete this goal?
