Yes, it’s almost new year, a little more than two weeks left and we are off to 2015.
Soooo it’s time for some NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS!
I know that many people do not even do it anymore because……, well what’s the point of having them and not really following it. Anyways, GUILTY! I have stopped with new year’s resolutions since two years ago. BUT I couldn’t help it but write a list of my resolutions on the first of January 2014. I must say, I did achieve some of my main goals, such as,
- Graduated for my Bachelor degree in International Business
- Ran two full marathons 26.6 (Rotterdam & Stockholm)
- Saved some money
- Grew spiritually
However, these are just four main goals out of a list of probably 100 other resolutions. And I’m sure if I had enough discipline I would have done 99 others this year. Anyways, no worries, life is so kind to us, that it will give us another shot, another year, another chance. Anyyyyyways enough about me, lets talk about YOUR NY RESOLUTIONS. Where do people even start with their lists, I mean we want so much, how do we know what to do first, how long should a list be. Is it really something that can change my life.
Okay for the last question, no it is not because you have to be willing to change your life. SO lets start!
How to create a perfect list with your New Year’s Resolutions (the NYR list)
- Priorities. You have to know what you want first before getting to your next goal.
- Your list should be divided into 4 parts (jan, feb, mar) (apr, may, june) (july, aug. sep) (oct, nov, dec). This way you will be able to see where you want to be at each stage of the year, and it’s a very clear view for yourself and your mind.
- Try not to list more than 20 goals, each part of the calendar will have 5 goals. It’s perfectly achievable and you will not disappoint yourself. If you know you can handle more, if you feel you are doing great and you want to challenge yourself, feel free do that along the way. Do not put much pressure on yourself when the year haven’t even started yet!
- Write your list on an A3 size paper if you wish and hang it behind your door or anywhere where you can see it everyday.
- Put some pictures or words/affirmations/quotes on your list so it will keep you motivated.
- You can also buy a notebook to keep on track of what you have done so far and what your next step will be (breaking down your goals will keep you motivated and will let you understand that each small step that you are taking will be as important as the big one)
- Visualize and imagine how your life will be on December 2015.
