New year, new you?! Self improvement, or at least the desire for it, is a shared American hobby. It’s estimated that 40% of Americans make New Years Resolutions, however only 8% of people actually achieve them.

Here are some tips to help you break that 8% and set and achieve your new years resolutions…

  1. Keep it simple

Many people use the New Year as an opportunity to make large bucket lists or attempt extreme makeovers either personally or professionally. While that’s a nice aspiration, it’s much more sensible to set small attainable goals, rather than singular, overwhelming one.

2.  Make it tangible and specific

A resolution to “lose some weight” is not that easy to follow. It’s much easier to follow a plan that says no potato chips or sweets for 6 weeks. And be sure to be specific. Don’t say you’re “going to start going to the gym,” set a clear plan like attending a weekly class or going 3 times a week before or after work. Remember that if you can’t measure it, it’s probably not a great resolution because vague goals turn into vague results.
