Reach New Years Goal with Mobile Attic

by Dec 28, 2023

With the Christmas behind us and New Years a stone’s toss away, it’s time once again to try the old resolution commitment. As you know, this is when we make a collective promise to ourselves about something we want to change for the upcoming year, and it can involve anything. But, the thing about resolutions is that they’re ideas. They sound great in our head, and so does the end result, but once the execution comes into play, people waiver.

That’s because a resolution requires work, and it’s easy to forget that. Oh sure, losing fifty pounds for the new year is an ambitious goal, and sure, maybe the night you think of it you have all the energy and momentum. You’ve watched all those inspiring YouTube videos and feel the inspiration. And then you get down to brass tax and, well, a couple weeks later the habit didn’t stick.

This is where many get confused. Making a resolution is about attaining a reasonable goal. Often, resolutions fail because they are, again, only ideas. Easier said than done, right? So, what do you do? Not make them at all? You could. Or, you could try something different.

Reflect on the Past Year

Before diving into the future, take a moment to reflect on the past year. What were your achievements? What challenges did you overcome? Reflecting on your experiences helps you identify areas of improvement and build on successes. This self-awareness lays the foundation for setting goals that align with your values and aspirations.

Make the Resolution Reasonable

Take a step back. The flaw of a New Year’s Resolution generally starts with the promise itself – in that it’s too much. “But, I can do it, I can do x,” you may say. And that’s true, you’re entirely capable of reaching your goals, if it’s reasonable. There’s nothing wrong with a goal of say, weight loss or increased financial stability. But it’s more reasonable to say, “I’ll lose fifteen pounds by x” instead of “I’ll lose all this weight,” and so on.

Break down big goals

If you have ambitious, long-term goals, break them down into smaller, more manageable tasks. This not only makes the journey less overwhelming but also provides a roadmap with achievable milestones along the way. Celebrate these smaller victories as you progress toward the larger goal.

Create Short-Term and Long-Term Goals

If you have ambitious, long-term goals, break them down into smaller, more manageable tasks. This not only makes the journey less overwhelming but also provides a roadmap with achievable milestones along the way. Celebrate these smaller victories as you progress toward the larger goal.

Create a Plan

If the notion of creating a scheduled plan to reach your resolution goal is off-putting, then you’re off to a bad start. Whatever you want to accomplish, it requires steps. “This year, I want to pay off this credit card.” Great! Now, what steps are you taking? What plan is there to achieve this goal? You’re imagining the finish line, but not the practice.

Creating a plan in this circumstance would be “I’ll pay x every week so I can pay off the card by this date.” The other resolution is “I’ll just pay it off.” Reaching your resolution requires answering the “how,” so keep that in mind.

Start Small

Resolutions are big, lofty things, which is why they fall flat. Try something smaller, something you can achieve in say a month, or less. You’ll feel better for doing it. For example, “I’ll read that book I’ve been hearing about.” Again, you’ll want a plan, such as time to set aside and a minimum number of pages read, but finishing a book is, at least, a goal.

Embrace A Growth Mindset

Goals are not static; they can evolve as circumstances change. Regularly review your progress and be willing to adjust your goals if needed. Life is dynamic, and flexibility in goal-setting allows you to adapt to new opportunities and challenges.

Review and Reflect Over the Coming Year

Create A Support Team

Share your goals with a friend, family member, or mentor who can provide support and hold you accountable. Having someone to share your journey with makes the process more enjoyable and increases the likelihood of success.

Celebrate Achievements No Matter How Small

Celebrate your achievements along the way. Acknowledge and reward yourself when you reach a milestone. This positive reinforcement fuels motivation and encourages continued effort.
