Make them small
Something about January 1st makes people ambitious, perhaps too ambitious. As much as it’s nice to think of the New Year as a fresh start (which it absolutely can be!), it’s not a magical day by any stretch. Unfortunately you’re going to wake up on January 1st the same way you woke up on December 31st, and December 39th, and December 29th. So when you sit down to set your goal make it something you really want, but don’t make it so crazy that you’ll give up after one week, remember you can always build up- pace yourself.
Make them measurable
Setting the goals “I want to live life to the fullest” or “I’m going to be healthier”. while admirable. are completely unmeasurable. Nothing is more frustrating than not knowing if you’re making progress on your goals. So instead of “trying to live life to the fullest” try doing one thing everyday that excites you. And if you want to go even further, sit down and think about what excites you and make a list. The more measuable the easier it will be for you to see how you’re doing in May when most other people have long forgotten about their goals.
