With 2022 fast approaching, most of us are probably already planning what we would like to achieve or accomplish in the upcoming year. Resolution-making, after all, is pretty common this time of year.
However, studies have shown that less than 25 per cent of people stay committed to their resolutions after just 30 days. According to Forbes, only eight per cent actually accomplish them.
This tends to happen because most people tend to start with ambitious and unrealistic goals without figuring out how to work them into their lives first. These goals then fall to the wayside because there is a lack of planning and simply unsustainable.
If you don’t want to end up forgoing your resolutions after a couple of weeks in 2022, read our tips below so that you can crush your goals this year.
1. Be specific and focused
While it may be tempting to try to cram as many goals as possible into your resolution list, a helpful suggestion may be to choose two to three manageable goals that you can achieve in 2022.
This will help you remain focused and not overwhelm you. After all, it’s quality over quantity here.
Once you have shortlisted your goals, a good idea would be to rework them such that they are more specific. For example, many people tend to express wanting to lose weight.
Instead of simply saying that (which can be very unhelpful because it is so ambiguous), try to specify your goals. For example, try stating that you want to lose five kilograms by June 2022.
Make sure that your goals are realistic and achievable. This will help you actually achieve them rather than giving up halfway simply because you know you will not be able to make it.
