Time to Take Stock of Your New Year’s Goals

How have you been doing with working toward your New Year’s goals? If you’re anything like me, it’s probably been slow going.

We’re nearly 1/3 of the way through the year and most people have already broken their New Year’s resolutions. The average person quit back on January 12. So if you made any resolutions, there’s a very good chance you’ve ditched them weeks ago. However, if you set yourself New Year’s goals, there’s a better chance you’ve tried to stick to them.  It’s a lot easier to stick to achieving a goal than it is to keep a promise–even to yourself.

Have you written those short stories you planned on writing? Have you finished those chapters you intended to write?

Go over the goals you set for yourself at the start of the year and see if you’ve reached them or are anywhere close to achieving them. If you are, good for you. If not, reassess your goals, and make adjustments, then try to meet the revised goals.

You’ll feel better about setting a goal and not quite getting it done than making a promise and then breaking it.
