Almost 2013

It is hard to believe but it is really almost 2013.  Did you get all you wanted out of 2012?  If you didn’t, there is still 1 full day left of 2012, plenty of time to do some things 🙂

What do you want to accomplish in 2013?  Where do you want to go?  Who do you want to be?  The great thing about January 1st is that every year we can get a fresh start on a new year.


Do we really have to wait until Jan 1, or Monday or any other 1st to start? No!  I do recommend waiting to start something until your ready, but in all honesty if you always wait until your ready or the time is right not a lot would get done.

When it comes to goal setting here are some tips I have

  • Create a big picture
  • Make it realistic
  • Break the big picture into smaller little goals and tasks to accomplish along the way
  • Write the small goals down
  • Start working on a plan to hit the small goals
  • execution!
Here are the top “New Years Resolutions” according to
  • drink less alcohol
  • eat better
  • lose weight
  • find a better job
  • manage debt
  • manage stress
  • recycle
  • quit smoking
  • take a trip
  • save money
  • volunteer

Does one of your 2013 goals fit in there?  If so, try to make it SMART

  • S – Specific (or Significant).
  • M – Measurable (or Meaningful).
  • A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented).
  • R – Relevant (or Rewarding).
  • T – Time-bound (or Trackable).
But most of all find ways to stick with it in 2013!  If you need help let me know!  Here is to a successful 2013
