Do I need New Year’s resolutions? I found myself straying to them when I woke this morning. Would I be better calling them goals for 2011? Or not having any at all?
They won’t be too different from those of previous years even if I do have them. You know what I mean, they go along the lines of – 1. Lose weight, 2. Exercise more. 3. Write more.
Of course goals are supposed to be measurable and achievable, so I guess they should read – 1. Lose two stones in weight, 2. Go to the gym three times a week, 3. Write 2000 words a day. But am I motivating myself with these, or setting myself up to feel bad later in the year?
Maybe I could set myself monthly goals, or weekly goals, or daily goals…..
Help please. How do you approach this and what would you recommend?
