New Year's Day (Resolution Time!)

This is either one of the most exciting or the scariest times of the year for you! People who know the trick to setting and achieving goals love New Years -- a time to start fresh and tackle some new challenges. People who dread their resolutions tend to fall into one of three categories -- either they set UNREALISTIC, vague, or overwhelming goals; they don't know how to break those goals down into concrete action STEPS; or they haven't set up a mechanism for REVIEWING and adjusting those goals as their priorities change. This year, why not move from the second category to the first -- all it takes is the right tools and a little practice.

Some Practical Organizing Tips...

Be SPECIFIC about what you want. "I want to get better organized" doesn't cut it. What would make you be better organized -- if you could find your car keys? If you weren't late paying bills? If you had some free time to spend on yourself?
Break your goal down into concrete steps. If you want to be punctual, write every appointment in a calendar, review each day, and set an alarm to leave 15 minute early. You must be able MEASURE whether you have succeeded at each step.
Cut yourself some slack! We set such tough "rules" for reaching our goals -- then berate ourselves when we slip. Focus on the RESULT rather than the regimen. Then if you backslide, you haven't "failed" -- you are still working toward the end result.
