Sticking to Your New Year Resolutions: AskKirubi

A resolution is a promise you willingly make to yourself and this is why you must set achievable resolutions and make sure you see them through. Start by reflecting on your past behaviour and resolve that you will make positive changes that will spur growth in all aspects of your life this year.

Making resolutions is easy, seeing them through is the challenge. Here are a few tips on how you can keep your New year’s promise.

  • Goal setting

As you start the year, set ‘smaller’ short-term goals that are not overwhelming like singular goals and will help you track the progress towards achieving your overall goal. Most of us get excited and set unrealistic goals forgetting that we need to make sure they are attainable. Start small as you look to setting and achieving bigger goals. No goal or milestone is too small or insignificant.

  • Behaviour Change

Performance and behaviour go hand in hand so you will need to embrace both in order to succeed in your professional and personal life. We all have unhealthy behaviours like poor time management and excuses that slow us down so work towards changing these a day at a time.

  • Stay Committed

I believe lack of seriousness and commitment is what fails us. We want to give up or change course the minute we face a challenge we didn’t expect. Once you set clear goals, work on them and stay committed to accomplishing what you started.

  • Create a work-life balance

I have said this time and time again, you must create balance between your work and personal life. In many instances throughout the year you will feel tired and worn out and it is crucial that you take some time off to maintain your balance and avoid burnout.

  • Stay accountable

Share your purpose and goals with business partners, colleagues, mentors or people you trust who will keep you accountable. They will ensure that your actions are aligned with your purpose and you achieve what you have set out to do.

Happy New Year my friends, don’t give up on your goals and dreams and keep the promise you have made to yourself this year.
