Another year, and new's years resolutions, it's like a new beginning.. We find this new motivation to achieve things we failed last year or maybe there is new goals... 1 January comes and it feel like we can move the mountains...
Let's look at some stats.. And a bummer.. they don't look great... About 60% of us admit that we make New Year's resolutions but only 8% are successful in achieving them (pretty sad, don't you think). Regardless of whether we achieved our previous resolutions, most of us go right ahead and make a new sets- hoping they will succeed this time...
Here are some interesting facts about the New Year's resolutions
It's pretty depressing so far hey.. looks like we don't have much chances looking at those stats above...
In 2019 on the top of the list was diet or eat healthier, exercise more, lose weight, save more and spend less, learn a new hobby, quit smoking, drink less, find another job and spend more time with friends and family.. Sounds familiar?
Why is is so hard to keep the new year's resolutions then? I believe there is a number of things contributing to the end result.
First you have to realize that 1 January is only symbolic and won't make ANYTHING happen unless you are determined to achieve your goals. It really does not matter if set your goals on 11 November or 1 January...
The goals itself must be SMART (Specific, measurable, achievable, and timely).
If you plan to put aside $500 a week, but after paying all your bills you have $300 left it is already a failure before you start... If you want to lose 10kg and planning to do within a month because you need be size 8 for your next holiday- well another failure ...Remember to plan it well and stick to it.
I don't usually make new year's resolutions,. I try to work on myself all year round and my decision to change something come when I need it,.. I feel I don't need to wait until the new year to start losing weight or save more money, or whatever else it may be...
Whatever your resolutions are I wish you win this race, just remember to plan well!
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
