Making New Year resolutions is a good idea, because you are setting goals for the future. You want to do something useful with the rest of your life. Don’t you? With 2 weeks left before the New Year starts now is the time to think about those resolutions and what you want to achieve in 2013.

A few years ago I decided to write a novel in the New Year, it would be a lot of work, but it was achievable. That is the first thing to consider. Is your goal achievable?

Strategy

Decide on a strategy for achieving your goals, get a pen and paper or a note book and plan it all out. Start by making a list of your goals. Look at the time scale that you are going to set yourself to achieve each goal on your list.

Resources

Look at what resources, you’ve got going for you. What will you need to achieve your goals? Do you have the  money  to invest in achieving your goals or do you need to save a little more? Do you have the education and talent to achieve your goals or do you need to work on that a little?

Family and friends

Will your family and friends support you in your quest? If you want to lose weight, will they encourage you to diet and take exercise and maybe even join you? If you need to save money, will they support you and understand when you can’t afford to spend as usual. If you’re trying to pay off debts, for example. Will your family accept their responsibility to help?

What resolutions could you make? Maybe, you could set a goal to change your life style to improve your health. This could involve support, not only from your family and friends, but health professionals too. Your goal could be to give up a bad habit like smoking or cut down on a bad habit like alcohol. You might come to an agreement with a member of your family, so both of you set goals to deal with a bad habit. You cut down on alcohol as long as another member of the family cuts down on nagging, shopping or TV soaps! Maybe, the kids will agree to clean their rooms and give you the time to take some exercise?

A shared goal

The whole  family could agree to a shared goal. For example, the whole family could agree to save money and energy starting on New Years day. Switch off lights, close doors, think before you spend and so on. The ultimate goal could be a family holiday with all the money that is saved. If the whole family gets enthusiastic about it, it would be something to enjoy doing together. You also get to, not only have  a holiday, but also to plan a holiday together. After all that thrifty and frugal living; it could be a scrimpers holiday of a lifetime!
