Nine of the Most Popular New Year’s Resolutions

What New Year’s Resolutions Are Right for You?  Here’s an easy way to figure it out:

  1. Start thinking of some of the things in your life that you already know you want to change or that have bothered you for a while.
  2. Ask those who are close to you – your spouse, friends, co-workers, maybe even your boss – if they have any suggestions for you. If they’re honest, I’ll bet they’ll have a suggestion or two for you.

Chances are, one or more of these nine popular New Year’s Resolutions will probably end up on your list:

  1. Get organized
  2. Get out of debt
  3. Lose weight
  4. Quit smoking
  5. Quit drinking
  6. More time with friends and family
  7. Enjoy life more
  8. Learn a new skill
  9. Get a better job (or maybe just any job)

Once you’ve developed a list, ask yourself “Why is this goal or resolution important for me?”  Write your answer down, and then ask the question again.

Repeat this several times until you feel you’ve really gained a good understanding of what goals are important to you, why, and what difference it would make if you achieved them.

Next, pick your top three and make a plan for how you’re going to achieve them.

Lastly, take action!
