My friend, Michele just posted on Facebook that she is looking for Peace and Happiness in 2013. I am going to assume that Facebook will be loaded with many resolutions throughout today and tomorrow.
Ring in the New Year!
I don't make resolutions. I set goals. We all should. This year I'll be SMART. Actually, I'll be using S.M.A.R.T.
Specific: Be clear. Be concise. Be exact.
Goals are set by increments. Goals are more easily achieved when set in bite size portions.
Accountable: Have a friend keep you on track. Keep a journal. Be honest with yourself. Seek advice of others.
Realistic: Be realistic in your goals. Goals that are set realistically with clarity and measured in increments that are obtainable. Keep it real.
Time-targets: The goals you set need to be set with times and targets. Mark them on the calendar! Celebrate them!
