As we head into another new year, many of us are making resolutions reflecting the goals we would like to accomplish in the year ahead. Yet, research suggests many of us give up on our resolutions within weeks, long before they can be accomplished. This is likely due to setting goals that are not specific or realistic. So, when setting your goals, remember to be SMART:
Remember to reevaluate your goals as time progresses. If you are having trouble making progress, you may have started too big. You may need to start in a different place or with a smaller goal in order to move forward.
Best of luck, and Happy New Year!
