I haven't made a New Year's Resolution since I was in college, because they've always struck me as a bit like lines drawn deeply in the sand: bold and dramatic and exciting.
What are your New Year's resolutions? You may think that you're just one tiny person who isn't making much of an impact. Nevertheless, there's no reason why one should give up and not try to keep up with a new set of resolutions every year. Change does not happen automatically. She'd remind us to challenge any absolute statements you're making in your head.
The first, important, step is to write down our goals, objectives, resolutions, whatever you want to call them.
And make the goal realistic, Maier said.
Or, let's say you want the coming year to be one in which you make an investment in your community. My reasoning was, I'm not going to keep it anyway.
Do you know that 2017 was one year that focused a lot on health and fitness? Then continue to pocket our monthly fees even after we've gotten distracted, moved on, or given up on that goal.
The What - This is the easy part.
"To let go of what I can't control and make the best out of what I can control".
"My resolution will likely be to MAKE MORE LISTS". This is not your bucket list. Essentially you take the same hopes for the future, but you alter the terms on which you'll evaluate change. And we do that entirely on the whim of a Roman named Julius Caesar who revamped the calendar more than 2,000 years ago, and decided each year should start in the month named after the two-faced god Janus, guardian of doors and gates. Life is far too short to waste even a second of it being frustrated and angry about superficial things. "Improving your inner voice is crucial in this regard; you have to be your own personal cheerleader". Once the "goal achievement period" was over, you rebounded to become that person you really were all the while. But do you know anyone who's actually stuck to it? I learned some good lessons about life and myself. After all, crime is up, and we are at risk in our homes, right? Unfortunately, this is not how the world works. You may have been drinking less water or eating out more, or simply spending your money on unimportant things.
Time-based means that there is a timeframe set for when you would like to complete your goal. If you want a new job, wishing it will not alert employers of your desire.
Well well well, it's that time of year again my friends. All you have to do is read and research. "You have to prepare properly". Although this might seem like an obvious and easy resolution, it is critical that you pause and reflect on what is working for you - and commit to staying on course and reaping even more of its benefits.
Make 2018 a year of rebirth. Although there are still some religious ties to resolutions, New Year's resolutions are still largely practiced today. We know that nothing beats meeting your old friends, but that doesn't mean you should not make new friends at all. "I've lost several incredible residents at The Renaissance this past year and I'm reminded that life is short and I really need to pause sometimes and focus on the things in life that really matter the most". May 2018 be a great year for all of us. It is the year that candidates for the 2019 general elections will show their faces and hopefully their concrete plans for moving Nigeria forward.
"Resolution" makes it a chore, an Everest to be conquered.
"Breaking my goals down into smaller, more doable steps, and creating a specific time frame around them is practical".
There are times when you may wonder if you should share something with your partner or intentionally hide something from him/her.
