10 Resolutions for Successful People
- Instead of creating the “to-do” list, make a “what-not-to-do” list of things that are draining your time. When you find yourself doing anything on that list, refocus.
- Always do the top priority things first. Even though a lower priority item may take less time and make you feel proud of yourself for checking it off the list, you just stole time from the most important things in your life.
- Never lose track of “who” you’re doing something for rather than the “what” you’re doing for them.
- Find your purpose in 2014 and then act on behalf of that purpose, always keeping your eyes on that target.
- Find a cause that is close to your heart and do what you can to support it, encouraging others to help.
- When you’re feeling low or depressed, stop and think of the choices you could make to avoid feeling trapped by your feelings. Everything we do in life is a matter of the decisions we make. Maybe your decision-making needs a tune-up. (See www.advantagediets.com for help).
- Try something new this coming year. Get out of your comfort zone. Don’t fear making mistakes. It’s how we grow.
- It’s okay to ask for help. We can’t know everything. But someone knows something we don’t and if asked, will probably be more than happy to help.
- Remember, today is the first day of the rest of your life. No matter what you did in 2013, both good and bad, tomorrow is a new day. You can act in a new way if you want to.
- Take time for yourself. If you’re burned out, you can’t be there for anyone else, let alone yourself.
Happy New Year! May it be a healthy and good one for you.
