New Year Resolutions

by Kritika Bangur on 13th January, 2011 at 1:13 PM CEST

As New Year just passed, it brought new hope, aspirations, a new start. New Year began, so did resolutions.

A resolution is a firm decision or determination.

"We will open the book, its pages are blank. We are going to put words in them ourselves. The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." Edit Lovejoy Pierce

Suddenly, people are talking a lot about New Year Resolutions. Almost everybody is trying to be a better person in the New Year by giving up bad habits and taking up some good ones. Keeping the resolution after making it is the toughest thing to do.

Here are some of the ways to keep resolutions:

1: Be realistic - One should be real as far as possible in planning to make resolutions and strive for a goal that is attainable. (resolving to never eat your favorite dessert could be a bad choice).

2: Planning ahead would be a better option.

3: Every option has its own pros and cons. Make a pro and con list so that you know what benefits you have at the end and in what areas one needs to put more effort. Making such a list helps us to keep our motivation strong.

4: Talk about your resolution to your friends, parents, close relatives, etc. Speaking more about it will keep you reminding.

5: Reward yourself for even the smallest achievement. It gives a sense of pride that Yes! I did it!

6: Track your progress - One should keep track of every small success made towards achieving a larger goal.

7: Sticking to a resolution could be the toughest thing but one needs to stick to it till it becomes a habit and then gradually one's personality.

Still if you fail to keep the resolution or follow the simple ways, keep trying.

Do tell us about your New Year resolution! And what kind of reward would you like to give yourself after you achieve it?

Walk through 2011 as a better and fitter you. So, start the year on the right foot, work hard and party harder!

Well I already shared this with some people as well on my blog >>

My new year resolution is not to make any new year resolution, but rather have a VISION of what the year (especially projecting to 31.12.2011), setting GOALs to get to these VISION and making PLANs to achieve these GOALs.

As for reward. I'm applying the Martini-Method, which means for a list of task, there is a pre-determined reward e.g. Getting dinner at a nice restaurant after delivery of portfolio to clients, or sitting in a round table with the rest of Y.E.N.I. crew after a jam session for dinner.

Yeah! That's me :)
