2015 Goals and Resolutions

January 1, 2015
Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and were able to have a bit of a break with your family.

With the New Year comes the inevitable New Year’s Resolutions. Are your resolutions usually something along the lines of lose weight, be more organised, or get healthy?

And are you surprised every year when you make it through the first couple of weeks of January (maybe less) before giving up?

This year, it is time to ditch the resolutions and set some achievable goals for 2015.

First up you need to determine your priorities, the most important things to you and ones that you want to focus on improving this year. 5 or 6 is a good manageable number however it doesn’t have to be that many.

For me, my priorities are my Husband, Hazel (and new Baby), Home & Finances, Family & Friends, Health and my Blog.

 

Once you have picked your priorities, have an in-depth think about each one. Jot down anything you would like to improve on, things which worked really well last year to continue, skills, adventures or activities you would like to do in the coming year, and anything you want to stop doing.

From there, you need to make them into achievable, realistic goals. For each goal, you need to have a plan of attack, it needs to be measurable and it needs to have an end date or schedule.

So, going back to our original examples of New Years Resolutions, these are some goals you could set:

Lose Weight

  • Keep a food journal everyday
  • Go to the gym 3 times each week
  • Drink 2 litres of water everyday
  • Track weight and measurements each month

Be More Organised

  • De-clutter 1 area of my home each month
  • Spend 30 minutes every Sunday planning the week ahead
  • Create a family Command Centre in January
  • Create and follow a cleaning schedule each week

Get Healthy

  • Sleep for 8 hours every night
  • Drink 2 litres of water everyday
  • 20 minutes of activity everyday
  • Schedule alone time every week

Some of my goals for 2015 are below.

 

 

Once you have your goals clearly set out and have given yourself some direction, completing them is the easy part. Next week I am going to chat about having a Weekly Plan Of Attack. Doing this each week ensured I completed my 25 goals for 2014 and will help me to complete the 34 I have set for 2015.

Anyone up for a little challenge? Over the next few days, have a think about your priorities and what you would like to achieve for each one this year. Turn those points into some achievable, realistic and measurable goals for 2015 then pop back next week to see how a Plan Of Attack will help you achieve them.
