How to Winter Proof Your Skincare Routine

New Year, New Goals: How I Plan to Achieve Mine

With the new year comes our inevitable new year’s resolutions should they be small, large, or straying from the norm.  This year mine are to save more money, launch my personal blog, and write more in general.

The problem with new year’s resolutions, in my opinion, is that we wait until the end of the year to decide how we want to better ourselves.  That sets us up for failure as we try to aim for a high goal (ex: I want to lose 150 pounds) or a vague goal (ex: I want to exercise more).  The problem with the high goal is that we want to attain it immediately, when in reality it takes time.  We then get discouraged at the slow progress and give up.  The problem with the broad goal is it doesn’t give us anything tangible to work with.  What exactly is “exercise more?”  How much does that even look like?

So in order to achieve my goals, while I do set up new year’s resolutions, I also set up monthly goals.  Taking my last resolution, “write more in general,” I have a monthly goal to write one short story/creative nonfiction piece each month.  This gives me something tangible to work with and specifies what it means to write more.

To save more money, I have determined how much of my paycheck I should put away each month and will stick to that figure.

And with the goal of launching my own personal blog, I have set a launch date and have given myself a goal as to how many posts I’ll write a week.

All of these goals have monthly steps, making a seemingly impossible goal suddenly achievable.  Going above and beyond, I also keep a planner with my goals written down on the dates they should be achieved.  The only thing I have left to do is to follow through.

I encourage you to set up monthly goals for yourself.  Consider what you want your end result to be, and set up monthly goals or steps to achieve that goal.  This will help prevent giving up on our new years resolutions.  Of course, if you don’t have the discipline to stick with it, you won’t get anywhere either.  Brittany has some great points on how to stick to your new year’s resolutions.

I’ll see you guys on Sunday!

Meagan
