After making resolutions it is good to pass through the journey of self accountability. Either you are following them properly or just wasting your time .chalk out your program on a page and read that paper every night to remember that what your target is for the year. Be true to your self, and amend yourself when you find yourself wrong.
Don’t wait for 31st December
It is better to follow your New Year program from the first month of the year rather than wait for the last month of the year. Habit of delaying and lazy attitude towards life really brings disappointments and worries in life. So save time. As it is rightly said time and tide wait for none.
Bundle of resolutions
It has been observed that many people makes bundle of resolutions for a year. They want to achieve a lot of goals in a very short period of time. This brings nothing except, confusion. And above all you can’t give proper time to anything. Choose one aim which you really wish to attain in the coming year and than chalk out a concrete program to achieve it.
Strong will power is also a step towards achieving your goals .Initially it is hard to follow the program strictly. And many problems become the barrier in achieving your goals. Don’t show a weak attitude towards these problems. Plan ahead what would you do in that situation, which is trying to spoil you programs. Keep your will power strong.
You have only one supply of willpower. You use it for a remarkable variety of things: restraining your appetites, making decisions, exerting initiative, performing well in work and school, being good to your loved ones, managing your money, and on and on. The most successful people allocate this judiciously.
Roy Baumeister, social psychologist
Make an open resolution because; when every one in your circle knows about your resolution, that makes you stronger to strict about your resolutions. And moreover in that way family members and friend support you to attain your goals. There is also a sense of competition exists that helps you to achieve your goals in a better and successful way.
Monitor your progress
Monitor your progress in every step and don’t fuss over your troubles but find ways to overcome these problems .Daily diary writing is also good to keep the record of your progress.
Reminders are very helpful to achieve the goals. It is good to keep many reminders of different times in different places. You can take help from cell phones and even you can take help from of email reminder services provided by some sites.
Be patience and give time to your self
You need to understand that it takes time to bring change in life, habits and routines. And it is not so easy to achieve the goals in a night. So patience is the key of success and if you face failure in any step don’t lose heart and try again because it takes time to bring change in life and you surely need to keep your spirit up.
Don't REPEAT THE MISTAKES

Nobody knows what is written on the wings of time.But it is our responsibility to live every moment of life wisely and make every year of the life memorable. Every New year is like our friend and it is our moral duty to take care our friend
.As TENNYSON rightly said after the death of year of life
His face is growing sharp and thin.
Alack! our friend is gone,
Close up his eyes: tie up his chin:
Step from the corpse, and let him in
That standeth there alone,
And waiteth at the door.
There's a new foot on the floor, my friend,
And a new face at the door, my friend,
A new face at the door.
WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR
