New Year Resolutions for 2016

It is that time of year again where we make commitments; we all hope for the best, use your will power and try to keep them through the year.  Here are a few resolutions that I have made in the past or have heard of:

 

  1. Buy / Sell a house (we have to mention that one!)
  2. Lose weight
  3. Get out of debt
  4. Quit (insert bad habit)
  5. Start (insert good habit)
  6. Spend more time with family
  7. Call friends and family more
  8. Change job / get promoted at work
  9. Volunteer
  10. Learn something new

 

Now that we have 10, how do you keep them?  Here is a list of ways to improve you odds:

 

Write it down

Accountability / buddy system

Make them more specific, instead of losing weight say lose 20 pounds

Make an action plan and steps to get there

                  (Go to the gym 3 days a week)

                  (Lose 2 pounds a month)

                  (Make a extra credit card payment every other month)

                  (Cut back to a pack or number of cigarettes a day or week)

Journal and look back / review your progress

Have dead lines

Ask for help or outsource

Know what you will have to add to or subtract from daily life to succeed!

Put reminders in front of you

Work and adapt your plan based on success and failure!

 

Good luck! let us know how you are doing.  If the buy or sell a home fits you, please give us a call so that we can help!

If you do not see your resolution or tip on how to keep one, add it to the comments!
