Resolutions or Goals?
Is there really a difference? Well according to Webster there is. A resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something. A goal is something to aim for to get a desired result.
So what should you set for the New Year; a goal or resolution?? Personally, I am all for the word GOAL. A resolution seems to be always something that people set so high and sometimes even very unattainable and unrealistic. Most people set a resolution as an all or nothing sort of deal. But if you don't get the "all" right away, you're discouraged and give up.
So why a goal? Goals provide you a direction to go towards. They're not as firm and rigid. It involves setting an intention, planning for it, tracking it and being realistic about the outcome and steps towards it.
Remember to set your goals SMART. Specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. Don't get discouraged if you experience setbacks, we're human, it happens! Keep going and don't force yourself to follow a rigid timeline, because when those setbacks do happen, you'll get down on yourself and tend to give up.
Be SMART with your goals and HAVE FUN!
Happy "almost" 2023 babes!
