PSD Video Tip #20: New Year’s Resolution Effect And How To Prevent It

simple todo list

New year is coming and this time of the year people make resolutions and set different goals for themselves.

Unfortunately, many of these goals are worth nothing and people are not able to stick with them very long.

In order to stick with your goals in 2012, use these S.M.A.R.T strategies for better success. I have also included couple of additional tweaks I’m using myself when setting the goals for 2012.



Your next tasks:

1. Put this blog post into action!

  • Decide your goals for 2012 and write them down.
  • Use S.M.A.R.T to get to your goals
  • Try to choose a goal which has the biggest impact in your life in 2012

2. Share your experiences and tips on the comment area:

  • What is your #1 goal in 2012?

3. Spread the word:

I would appreciate it if you share this post on Twitter or on Facebook.

  • Funny, this is EXACTLY what I was doing, this morning! Wrapping up the old, crafting the new…

    This WORKS, and as far as I know, it’s the only way to write “resolutions” or “goals” that does. The other KEY ingredient, for me, is COMMITMENT. Without it, nothing’s going to happen. And if you’re not committed to your goals, no one else will be – so why even call it a goal or a resolution? Think about WHY you’re adding it to the list. If your only answer is “Well, I know I SHOULD…” then forget about it. Unless you can say, “Because I SERIOUSLY WANT TO DO THIS” then it’s not ready to be added to the list.

      I agree. Without commitment, reaching those goals is going to be very difficult.

      Thanks for the insight!
