The Clock Is Ticking




The many days of the 2015 have sped by and here we are on the 29th of December. With only 2 days left of the year what you may begin to look over the year and remember what you did and what you wanted to do. For me this year has went quite fast and while the truth remained that

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
Of twenty-eight there is but one,
And all the rest have thirty-one.

Those 363 days have traveled quite speedily and there are many things that we did do and more that we did not get done. With only 2 more days to go we can either scramble to finish what we wanted in 2015 or get ready to do more in 2016.

The one thing to do when creating your goals for the new year is to make them reachable for you. Many will want to stop smoking, make more money, retire or lose weight the one thing that you will want to say is that you may want to make 2016 better than 2015. For even good things can be made better.

Create a list of goals and write it down. This may be on your blog, your journal or even on a piece of paper for the fridge to hold Putting it down on paper should make it something you strive to complete. When you write your goals remember to be specific do not just write lose weight in the new year make it a real goal with a number in mind. Whatever it is make it specific in time and value.

Do a bit of research were their others that had the same new years goal as you?? How did they go about it. Researching a bit of what to do and success at doing it may just make your fight a bit easier.

Start right away putting something off will start a snowball effect of the next day always being a better day to start. Break away starting fresh and not looking up keep your nose to the grind will make your goal possible

Keep faith if possible keep a picture of the goal of whatever you want to reach. When it seems like you are down and not for sure what to do next this reminder will keep you on tract

Share with others about your goal. IS there a group you can join where others are striving for the same goal. There always has been groups out there but now with social media there are even more great groups. Look to see if you can find one where you can meet others with the same like goal.

  2. i agree with the suggestion of trying to find others with the same goal. especially if it is a weight loss goal because encouragement from others struggling to keep the same goal is helpful

  18. The biggest goal I have for myself is to quit smoking. It's so cliche to make it a resolution, so I'm making it more like an attainable goal. I'm going to be keeping track with an app on my phone that tells you how your health is now that you've quit and how much money you've saved. I think the visual will help me with staying on track.

  19. I've actually made it a goal to not set resolutions, but rather set goals. I feel like resolutions set me up for failure, where as I can build and work towards goals.

  20. I've created both personal and blog goals just this week. Resolutions are good but goals are better. Particularly if they're SMART - specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-sensitive. Thanks for a great post and look forward to more great content in 2016! Happy New Year!
