Habits That Will Sink Your Goals This Year

By Gordon Tredgold

As a business coach, I find that the start of the year is always a great time because clients are full of optimism and ready to set bold new goals or create inspiring visions for their futures.

And while I love to help them set these goals, it’s worth noting that University of Scranton research suggests that just 8 percent of people achieve their New Year’s goals. That is deflating.

The majority of people fail for the same reasons, and they repeat these same mistakes year after year. Read more

3 Simple Methods I Personally Use to Achieve New Year Goals

Let me start by wishing you a Happy New Year!

If you are thinking about making new year resolutions or creating new goals for this year, allow me to share with you three simple methods that have worked very well for me and many others over the years.

1. Write it down. Write down your goals, resolutions, or any changes you want to see in your life. Make it a daily routine. It will work wonders for you. Trust. Me.

2. Work on it every day. Focus your effort on one or two most important goals and make it a point to do something for it everyday, even for only 5 minutes. Write it down. Think about it. Talk about it. They all count.

3. Be willing to restart. Some goals are not meant to be achieved at first go. Accept the failure and simply restart. Things often turn around for better after no more than three or four tries.

Finally, adopt a good goal system to keep you organized and movitated. Please take advantage of our first day of the year sale to jump start your 2017.

By Kim Penix

love the last week of the year. It’s a week that always fills me with hope and anticipation of the new year to come.  The stress of the holidays is over and my body can rest and recuperate for the coming new year.

This is also the time that people tend to set their goals for the coming year. (Have I ever mentioned how I’m a type-A person stuck in a chronically ill body? Oh, the torture!)

Goal-setting for someone with a chronic illness can seem like a waste of time. How are we ever supposed to succeed at a goal when our body is trying to shut us down?

I’ve learned a few things over the years I’ve been ill and one is that it is possible to set and achieve goals. You just have to go about it differently than most.

Here are the nine things I think are important when setting goals: Read more

By Stephanie Vozza

Getting organized is one of the most popular promises people make to themselves as they enter the New Year. But how can you keep your resolution instead of being part of the 92% of people who make them and fail?
