Let me guess: you made a New Year’s resolution this year. Over 40% of Americans make New Year resolutions each year and the number is steadily growing. A resolution can be anything from wanting to travel more, losing weight, spending more time with family or even learning to paint.  If you didn’t make a resolution this year, maybe there is something that you want to accomplish in the New Year.

Your resolution could be a dream you had when you were a little boy or girl or something that you recently learned about when scrolling through your Facebook feed. It doesn’t matter the inspiration, it’s now time for perspiration. The experts at Forbes recommend the following tips to see your resolution or goal until the end.

  • Keep it simple

Although some of us would love to visit the moon or visit every country next year, those goals sound glamorous but are going to be very difficult to achieve. The experts recommend simple and attainable goals.

  • Make it tangible

The purpose is to break down your larger goal into more manageable and attainable goals. You also want to be very specific with your goals.

  • Make it obvious

You will need a way to track and monitor your goals. You can write them on a to-do list, put them on your calendar, or put a post-it note on your fridge.

  • Keep motivated

One of the best ways is to tell your family and friends about your goal. You can post it on your Facebook wall, tell your best friend or tell your neighbor. It’s doesn’t matter who you tell, just tell somebody. They can help keep you motivated.

If you want spend more time with your family, you are going to enjoy it more if you can hear your grandkids giggle and laugh.
