The New Year is just around the corner, and that normally means it’s time to think about resolutions. But the word resolution has become loaded with meaning – and possibly, frustration. Instead, try reframing the concept as reaching for goals. Like many people, your objectives may be related to your health or your finances, to name two common examples. Here’s how you can start – and stay – on the path to setting and reaching your goals, financial or otherwise.
Having the discipline and motivation to reach a goal is tricky. But by doing things such as identifying goals that get you excited, visualizing the outcomes, breaking them down into pieces, thinking through the obstacles and keeping track of your progress, you’ll already be further along than most.
