It is so tempting to at this time of year make really big resolutions. I resolve to lose fifty pounds, to run a marathon, to speak fluent French, to write that novel, to enjoy huge success, to keep all of my resolutions.
Of course we generally fail when we make such grandiose plans and making simple, achievable plans seems like we're taking the easy way out.
Let's resolve, then, to enjoy the success of manageable goals. When we achieve a goal we tell ourselves that we can achieve another, and another, and another.
It's so easy to be hard on ourselves. Let's take the hard way out of this. Let's be easy on ourselves and set goals we can achieve.
Here's to goal achievement in the new year.
