New Year’s resolutions – How do I plan to achieve my goals?

New Year’s resolutions are a good way to motivate yourself to achieve your goals. Here are some tips that can help you plan and achieve them:

  • Define your goals clearly and specifically. Try to avoid generalities and define exactly what you want to achieve.
  • Set yourself a goal that is realistic and achievable. Avoid overly ambitious goals that may be difficult to achieve.
  • Make an action plan and break down your goal into smaller steps. This will help you organise it better and motivate you to take action.
  • Keep yourself motivated by regularly monitoring your progress and enjoying small successes.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help or seek support from others. This can be very helpful, especially if you are struggling to achieve your goals.
  • Be patient and don’t give up when difficulties arise. Remember that it takes time and effort to achieve a goal.

Why are overly ambitious New Year’s resolutions not a good way to go?

Overly ambitious New Year’s resolutions are often difficult to achieve, which can cause frustration and lack of motivation. If a goal is too difficult to achieve, you may quickly become discouraged and abandon your resolution. On the other hand, setting a goal that is realistic and achievable will allow you to better organise your actions and give you a greater sense of satisfaction when you reach it. Remember, too, that you can always increase your ambition gradually once you have reached your initial goal.
