It’s that time of year when people reflect on their past year and often make a resolution to change something in the approaching New Year. Some people are very successful at these types of broad resolutions but for most, in order for a resolution or goal to be achievable it needs to be specific and measurable.
So if you’re looking to set yourself a 2014 New Year resolution make it specific – “I will completely quit smoking by March”, “I will register for piano lessons in January”, “I will achieve an XX% body fat by June”.
According to Time Magazine the following are the most commonly forgotten or pushed aside resolutions (you’ll notice how broad and open to interpretation they all are!)
- Lose Weight and Get Fit
- Quit Smoking
- Learn Something New
- Eat Healthier and Diet
- Get Out of Debt and Save Money
- Spend More Time with Family
- Travel to New Places
- Be Less Stressed
- Drink Less
