Mentally prepare for change

Changing ingrained habits is no easy task, so before diving head-first into your New Year goals, it is important to take a step back and get ready for that impending change.

Set a goal that motivates you

These goals could be dictated to or coerced by a manager, spouse, or parental / peer pressure. While it’s nice to have some external support, if you don’t share the same passion, the resolution has a small chance of succeeding and could even be dead on arrival.

Limit resolutions to a manageable amount

A common mistake in resolution setting is having too many and spreading yourself too thin.  you should make a short list of resolutions that you can manage in the upcoming year.

Be specific

When it comes to setting resolutions, it’s easy to set bad goals that could lead to poor follow-through. Fortunately, the SMART goal-setting framework can help you craft better goals.

 Break up big goals into smaller goal

A lot of us tend to be over-eager and grandiose when it comes to resolutions. We have the best of intentions and may accidentally take on a goal that is too big to achieve. Thus, it’s helpful to divide a big goal into smaller goals that are more achievable.
