Make them Stick: How to Keep Your
 2018 New Year’s Resolutions

As the new year approaches, it’s time to reflect upon the past year and to begin thinking about what’s in store for the next. It’s an opportunity to re-set, recharge and move forward. What do you want to accomplish in 2018? Here are some tips and ideas to get you on the right track.

What do you want to achieve in 2018? The New Year is here, and it’s time to start creating that list. According to Statistic Brain, only 9.2% of people who make New Year’s Resolutions felt they were successful at achieving them in 2017.  Here’s how you can stay on track to achieve your goals this year.

  1. Keep it simple. Too many things on the list will not motivate you.
  2. Be specific. A resolution to get organized is daunting. A resolution that says “organize the papers on my desk” is much easier to achieve. You can always add on once you have accomplished the first goal.
  3. Make it measurable. The goal of being more creative may be hard to achieve. Instead, resolving to create a painting a week or go to a museum once a month is measureable (and specific).
  4. Create accountability for yourself. Tell your friends, blog about it or commit to a class or program that you have to show up for every week.
