It's finally 2017. New year, new beginnings. Many of us have probably written down a set of resolutions for the new year. How to lead a better life, become a better person in 2017.
It can be difficult to keep this motivation up as you move along the year. Multiple distractions can cause you to sidetrack and eventually lose motivation. How can we stay focused and achieve what we set out to do?
Here are some tips and tricks to help us work towards our goals in 2017!
Many times, a resolution can be just a statement. Not diving into the specifics can make it difficult to track your progress throughout the year. Overtime, losing focus and momentum can cause you to sidetrack and lose motivation to achieve your resolution all together.
PLAN IT OUT
Once your goals are made measurable, start doing monthly planning! By breaking down your goals into smaller achievements, it doesn't look all that daunting after all and you will be more motivated to work towards success.
MEASURE EVERY STEP
After all that planning, and working hard, don't forget to measure your achievements. This gives you a good idea of how much closer you are to your goals, and set actionable plans if you are still slightly behind your target.
SHARE YOUR GOALS
Share your resolutions with your loved ones and families. With support and encouragement, you will be more motivated to stay focused. Who knows, maybe you'll find someone with like-minded goals whom you can pair up with and work on your journeys together!
Lastly, never ever forget why you set this resolution. It's easy to be demotivated when things get hard and eventually lose focus. Remind yourself of the "why" and use this very reason to push yourself through every obstacle you face.
Have a Happy New Year!
