What do you want to achieve in 2020? The New Year—and new decade—is here, and it’s time to start creating that list. According to U.S. News & World Report, by mid-February, 80 percent of New Year’s Resolutions have been broken. How do you become part of the 20 percent that keeps their resolutions?

Four Tips to Achieve Your Goals This Year.

  1. Keep it simple. Too many things on the list will overwhelm you.
  2. Be specific. A resolution to “get organized” is daunting. “Organize the papers on my desk” is much easier to achieve.
  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.
