Here at Albuquerque Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we have a passion for improving our business and always getting better as home service professionals. Every year we make a resolution to improve in some way or another. We know most of you out there will be making New Year’s resolutions as well. Keeping a resolution isn’t easy, in fact, almost 70 percent of resolutions are abandoned by March! We want to help you stick with your resolutions for 2016! An easy way to do that is by following a few of our easy tips!
Set Attainable Goals
It is important to set goals that you can actually meet. Anyone can resolve to make $1 billion this year, but succeeding in that resolution is almost impossible. If your goals are nearly impossible, you might not even try. Motivating yourself will be extremely hard. Set attainable goals. Perhaps you would like to save $2,000 this year. Now, with every dollar you save, you will see yourself getting closer to your goal! You will want to keep going, and you will probably even succeed.
Set up small benchmarks and reward yourself when you achieve them. This is a great way to stay motivated. If your goal is to lose 20 pounds this year, make a mini-resolution to lose 5 pounds every three months. This will seem easy in comparison. Every time you reach one of these mini-goals, allow yourself a big, delicious cheat mea. Reaching the finish line will be very rewarding and highly anticipated.
Modern technology can really help you stick with a New Year’s Resolution. Set a reminder on your phone to go off each day. This can just be a gentle reminder about the importance of your resolution. It will help you stay on track and not get distracted.
