In January many people make New Year’s Resolutions; lose weight, save money, pay off debt, etc. Sadly most New Year’s Resolutions won’t even see the end of January. The main reason is because they include no plan for action. “I resolve …to lose weight” is a great resolution, but a better one would be “I resolve to exercise on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 1 hour per day”.
I like to make New Year’s Resolutions, although I call them goals. I make goals in several categories and then lay out steps to attain those goals. For instance “Expand the Garden” might be followed with the steps to attain that goal such as “add three new rows at east end of garden” and “Make trellis for climbing beans and cucumbers” If I have clear steps to attain my goals I’m much more likely to be successful.
What are your goals for 2013?
