At the start of each year many of us take part in the ritual of setting resolutions for ourselves. However, six months in most people have given up on these good intentions or have completely forgotten about them all together. According to the website statisticbrain.com, 45 percent of Americans make resolutions but only eight percent end up keeping them. The question is: are you an eight-percenter?
Think back on that list you made and remind yourself of the goals you were once so enthusiastic about accomplishing. How many of those things can you still manage to get done before 2012 is officially over? Ok, so you may not be able to lose those 50 pounds that you wanted in the short amount of time that’s left in the year, but you can take advantage of the days ahead by at least beginning an exercise regimen that may result in you dropping a pound or two at minimum.
Perhaps one of the goals you hoped to have accomplished was to get better organized. Then do it! Go through that closet and donate the clothes you haven’t worn in the past year (or two); go ahead and shred all those papers piling up on your desk; and put those items you love, but don’t need at the moment, in storage. The point is that there is still time left to scratch off something on your 2012 to-do list before the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve. Simply be realistic about what can and cannot get done and take action. You have 20 days left to make some magic happen.
Don’t just sit there – get busy!
Until next time…
Wait! Before you go leave a comment about the goal you plan on meeting before the year is up.
