How many times have you started a goal just to end up forgetting about it a few weeks in?
Instead of waiting for a special occasion, like New Year’s or your birthday to start that new project – just start and see what happens.
Hitting the refresh button and starting all over again can be tempting, but often, it isn’t as easy as it sounds. Creating a habit or a routine takes more than hoping that things will change once that day comes.
Instead of resolutions, try setting intentions.
Intentions give you some more wiggle room and can take some of that pressure off.
An intention like “I will be more patient with others” gives you a less strict guideline that you can grow on more and more each day.
Put a Plan In Place
Making a solid plan could be the secret to making your goal become a reality.
Take your intentions even further by breaking them down into small steps.
For example, if you want to learn a new language, you will need to get familiar with the basics first.
After all, anything worthwhile doesn’t happen overnight.
Prepare For Distractions
As much as you plan, sometimes life can get in the way.
When plans pivot, let them!
It’s okay to skip a day or two when you need a break as long as you don’t lose sight of the end game.
