How to ensure you accomplish your goals & resolutions!
Here we are, the third month of the year…. How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions & goals?
Many people have already forgotten or dismissed the goals they set for themselves… Don’t fall into this trap.
Look back at the previous year and celebrate your accomplishments…. Now set some “realistic” goals that will help improve your performance in all areas of life; personally & professionally.
Here are some tips to help ensure success.
Refocus your morning habits
Instead of struggling through the morning before you head to work, regroup and try to set up some good, solid morning habits. Consider pulling back the curtains and letting the sun shine in your windows. Set your coffee the night before and take some time to sit and enjoy it as you read for a few minutes. Make your bed when you get up because it will make your room look tidier.
Brainstorm ways to help you feel more ready and begin to form some new morning habits.
Get some extra sleep
Try to get to bed earlier or set your alarm later. Often, it becomes easy to do one more thing around the house or to check email one more time to get ready for the next day. Try skipping this and get some extra sleep instead.
Take time to read daily
We live in a world where you can watch TV or videos on any mobile device at any time. Rather than focusing on so much screen time, consider reading about 30 minutes per day. Find something encouraging to read which will nurture your mind.
Get out of your rut
You still have time to do something new this year. Try to get out of your rut and embrace something that you haven’t done before. This is a great way to enjoy life and make it feel less mundane.
Consider what you’re thankful for
Work and life can be busy. It is easy to get overwhelmed, so take time out to write down what you are thankful for. Seeing it on paper will enhance your attitude and allow you to feel more positive and grateful, which will help you at work too.
Network with someone each week
Rather than getting stagnant, be sure to network with someone each week. We learn so much from others and they can be an encouragement too. Be sure to take time out each week to build relationships by connecting with others.
Make this your most productive year ever!
