I watched a funny skit on Saturday Night Live called Resolution Revolution which parodies our annual struggles in trying to keep New Year’s resolutions. Here is a quick lyric from the song:
“So no more sugar for me, less ice cream more broccoli. Gonna be hard ’cause I love my sweets and any kind of food deep fried in grease! But I’m gonna do it, ALL YEAR, not gonna quit that much is clear. Nothing’s gonna break my….d.o.n.u.t.s.” (Camera cuts to dude stuffing face with eclairs, boston creams, powdered sugar and glazed donuts galore! )
Why is it so hard for us to keep our New Year’s resolutions? Well, as a former elementary school counselor (whose job it was to help children change their undesirable behaviors through behavior modification strategies), I can easily answer that question! New Year’s resolutions are difficult to keep unless we put plans of action and strategies in place to help ensure success. Today I’m going to share with you some insider tips on how to be successful in your goals for 2014!
The first thing we need to do is learn how to break down all of your goals into “bite-sized” weekly and daily obtainable goals!
This is best done through an adult “behavior chart”, if you will! I’ll show you how to make your own DIY Goal Calendar with free sticky note printables and how to define your daily goals in ways that WORK.
