Since New Years Resolutions are rarely maintained how do you inspire yourself to achieve goals?


I have bucket list goals, life goals, parenting goals, crafting goals and more. My journal is the place to keep them listed and chart my progress. Why do we have trouble keeping on track when we set goals for ourselves? Psychology says a pattern repeated for 21 days in a row will "brand" itself on us and we can then maintain it. It worked for me with making the bed. What would you like to make a habit/pattern in your life?

    So please clarify for me how negativity plays a role in this mindset? I just started a new business & believe w/ hard work & consistency it will be successful. How do occasional doubts affect the outcome? Dee

    I don't agree that career or life goals are directionless. If you take classes to improve your abilities & increase your skills, etc. you can better position yourself to move up the ladder or be kept on when others are let go. Dee

    Wow that's a little cynical. (-; But too often that is very true. So my goal this year is a trip to Africa & I have to stop spending to achieve it. I hope that reward system works for me. Dee
