I know: it’s late, again. Well, I’m sure anyone who’s followed this blog for any period of time is kinda used to this by now. Hopefully you all enjoyed the holiday celebrations, including new year, and thought up some new year’s resolutions.
Be sure to mention your resolutions in the comment sections below! I genuinely find these things really fun to talk about, so feel free to mention what goals you’ve got planned for 2016 🙂 .
I thought that this year I’d do a post on how to make new years resolutions that you’ll be able to complete and stick with, and hopefully feel good about by the end of the year as you walk out a winner.
I always sucked at thinking these things up – mainly because I forgot what they even were half way through the year or set goals which were just that little bit too impossible. But I think I’ve got it this year. The trick, I think, is actually in making the goals easy, or even making several easy goals that contribute to a bigger goal. I think what I’m trying to say, is the key is PLANNING.
I know, that might sound a little daunting, and as the king of procrastination (okay, I’m probably not that bad) I know how easy it is to forget to plan and to now be able to follow plans. I read in an article earlier this year that procrastination often happens because we don’t make our goals (work or whatever) easy enough. We only look at the final destination and not what we need to do to get there. It’s miles easier to see the individual, easy steps going towards the end goal than to look at the task as one solid ‘block’ – in more ways than one, because it could literally block you from reaching your goal. I guess it’s about how it seems to you when you approach it. It’s just easier to take something apart than tackle it all in one go.
Good luck 😉 . I thought of not posting this article because it was a little late but I think it’s still useful even if you’ve thought of your goals.
– Get the grades I need to get into the uni I want. They are pretty hard to get (for me at least). I won’t go into details because its fucking boring blogging material, but I’ve got to get good grades in this year’s exams and my retakes – of which there are many :'(. Even so, they are doable.
– Read two books every month. It’s interesting to know stuff, and I’ve started to find that it helps in all walks of life to be able to spew out stuff you learn in books and know how to say it.
– Get preparations for my trip to Japan sorted before it’s too late.
I’ll leave it there. After all, I only have so much spare time on my hands. I’m excited for this year – it’s gonna be seriously hard, but the rewards are more than worth it. Again: share your new year’s resolutions in the comment section below if you want, and ESPECIALLY any tips you have in mind :). Have a great new year everyone.
