How to Keep Your New Year's Resolutions

I’m not one for making New Year’s Resolutions. If I feel that something needs to be done, first I decide if it's in my power to acheive and make plans in my head on how to go about doing it. Secondly, I start off small and constantly work towards where I want to be and what I want to accomplish.

I’ve heard too many times about resolutions of losing weight, saving more or working less. Most of these plans go out the door before the end of March (if they make it that far).

I can’t say that I know anyone who’s made a New Year’s Resolution and stuck to it all year long. Do you?
If you are someone who makes these resolutions and find it hard to stick to them, here are some simple ways that may help.

  • Have just one resolution
  • Define it properly and know exactly what must be achieved
  • Create a time table to enable you to do it in portions or stages
  • Tell your close family what it is and rope in their help too
  • Choose a time to start. Your start day needn’t be January 1st
  • Important: When you fail, pick yourself up, dust off, and start over again. Remember that failure isn’t a malfunction or a stumble. It’s a complete crash. Learn to get up when you fall.
To start you off on your path to success, here is an amusing New Year article to tickle your funny bone: Superstitions That Make You Say 'NoWay'

Several of my 2009 resolutions were accomplished, so I look forward to my new resolutions.

Bucuria sa-ti lumineze privirile, bunatatea sa-ti vegheze drumurile, implinirea sa-ti incoroneze idealurile, iubirea si dragostea sa-ti umple din plin inima! LA MULTI ANI!

Good, solid advise. I never do it by the way. Waste of my time.

A very happy and inspirational 2010 to you and yours Anne
