New Years Resolutions. Plain and simple, I don't make them. I used to. And every year I used to be sad and depressed at the end of the year knowing my lack of determination was the cause. I always made the same ones too. Loose weight, stop swearing, on and on. Then I decided to change my mind set and stop making goals that I knew I wouldn't be able to keep. Instead, I go for monthly goals. And for the last 3 years that has worked for me and I have been successful at them. No more end of the year depression!
I stick with goals that I know are attainable every month but require effort to complete. Here is a sampling of what I mean:
- Get that months finances in order. By the week.
- Put receipts in envelopes. Mark them and file them.
- Balance the checking account every Saturday night.
- Pay bills by the due date. Mail 4 days before due.
So to all you people who make the huge resolutions, GOOD LUCK! If you can do it, good for you!
