Billions across the globe make resolutions on a New Year night and that is usually how they start their year. It’s a great way to plan out new ideas and to work on it. However, after few days all the enthusiasm and confidence fizzles out as regular and hectic routine takes over. You might have your own resolutions for the year 2014, but the year is almost over and it could be that many of your resolutions are still pending. So, how do you work on those pending resolutions and ensure that you complete them in such a short period of time?
Here are some tips on how you can complete them on or before the end of the year.
Break It Up
If you have a resolution that is too hard for you to handle, you need to break it up into smaller parts. Normally, when the task is too big you feel the pressure of completing that task. Your brain tells you that you cannot really do it and that feeling eventually overtakes the confidence. However, when you break that huge task into smaller actions you can see that you can do it and achieve a bigger objective.
Make It a Habit
Most people have resolutions that are directly related to their health. Some would want to quit smoking while some might want to lose weight or focus on work. This cannot happen overnight and you need to convince yourself about it. However, once you are convinced you need to make smaller changes to your lifestyle and make your goal into a habit. With these tiny modifications that you make regularly you will be able to take over some of the biggest challenges.
Focus on One Resolution
Studies have claimed that people that had only one resolution per year were able to achieve it compared to those who had multiple resolutions. This is mainly because they were focused on that one particular resolution that was important to them and they were working on it. With multiple resolutions you are not really sure to keep tabs on all of it and at the end of the day you achieve none.
Write It Down
When you have that one resolution you need to write it down so that you remember it deep inside your mind. Many experts believe that writing down helps so that you remember your goals even when you are busy and that will help you to achieve your goals in a better way.
As per a recent study by University of Chicago it was found that people who reward themselves after completing their goals are more likely to complete other resolutions as well. So, if you want to control your diet and if you have managed to do that for a week, you can give yourself a treat on weekend and you are more likely to follow the diet in the future because you felt great about it and you celebrated it in a small way that gave you the joy of winning and completing your goal.
