Every year there are many individuals who make New Year’s resolutions. Some fall short of making them because they do not have a full proof plan to sticking to them. There are a few factors that could contribute to falling short. However, the main thing to making a New Year’s resolution and sticking to it is to make obtainable goals. The first thing you would want to do is keep a journal of what steps to do first. You can start out by taking baby steps towards reaching the ultimate goal. When you start out small you make the ultimate goal more reachable. Who doesn’t love crossing things off a list? The more items you put on the list to begin with, the more you’ll get to cross off. The more you cross off the better you’ll feel and the more motivated you’ll be to going. The real trick is planning ahead with a really thorough plan for how you’re going to meet your goals. Check out a few resolutions we’ve outlined below.
Pay Off Debt
For example, if your New Year’s resolution is to make your credit score higher, step one would be to obtain a credit report. That should be easy enough. Then, you would want to pay the smallest amounts owed first or start with the highest rate and go from there.
Another example, if you would like to declutter your home you would choose what space you would like to claim. Figure out if you would like to store the items in storage, give them away for free or have a yard sale. A little at a time you will be able to claim your space.
No matter what your resolution may be it will always be obtainable as long as you are goal oriented and motivated.
