How to Achieve Your New Year's Resolutions

I don't make New Year's resolutions.

Turning the calendar to a new year does not motivate me.

What motivates me to consider exercising more, eating better, or cleaning more is the end of the holiday season.

Besides, a year is too long to try to achieve a goal.

So how do you achieve your New Year's resolution (if you made one)?

Make the resolution smaller.

Would your resolution/goal be easier to achieve if it was only for a month? 

or a week?

or a day?

Break your big resolution/goal into smaller steps.

Want to lose 10 pounds this year?  That's less than one pound a month.  What do you need to do to achieve that?  Cut out 100 calories a day?  Exercise 15 more minutes per day?  

Doesn't that sound easier?

Is your goal to de-clutter or keep up with the cleaning?

Break it down to little tasks every day.  At the end of the year, you should see noticeable progress.

Did you set a new resolution or goal?

Every big goal, to be achieved, must be divided into smaller daily goals. 

 Make a daily resolution and at the end of the year, you will have achieved your New Year's resolution.

The hardest part of achieving your goal is implementing the steps to achieve it.
How do you implement your resolutions?

I agree, Karen. It is much easier to take small daily steps when reaching a big goal. I know from experience that diving-in all at once only makes life stressful.
