I learned an amazing trick this year that helped me find success and satisfaction with my resolutions all year long! Yep, this one thing guided my heart and mind every month of 2017. I’m eager to share it with you today!
A common way to set goals for the new year is by setting resolutions.
I know, I said that foul “R” word: resolutions…
Unfortunately, most people don’t find success when they set a resolution. This is exactly why I don’t normally set resolutions. I’ve always felt so much pressure and expectation to just fail at keeping my resolution and commitment. Yes, I would create SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time bound) goals for myself, but nothing I’d ever call a resolution.
Last December I decided to take a new approach to annual resolutions and goal setting. This method really worked, my friends, so I’m excited to share it with you!
Because of the format of my resolution, I was able to keep the two personal commitments I’d made all year long. Yes, I had some ups and downs along the way, but I never gave up because of the way I created my resolution. It helped me stay focused, motivated and realistic. As a result I was able to make great strides in my business goals, including:
- publishing 10 blog posts on personal leadership and life management topics
- writing an introduction and three chapters for my book on Life-Clarity
- speaking at two conferences (one in California and one in Colorado) on coaching topics
- recording 15 videos for my Moment of Clarity video series
What is it you want to accomplish in this next year?
