There are big things coming for you in 2018 and here’s a way to bring them your way!!!
A new year, a new you right?? Well, it is possible, but only if we change some things this year and change them now. People often identify their wishes and desires for better habits or a better result (i.e. more money, better health, more discipline in some area, etc.), but what makes this year different than last year?
I have found for me that getting an accountability partner can make a huge difference in keeping me accountable for a goal. We often think of accountability partners in the physical sense, like a gym partner, but in the 21st century you can take your accountability virtual.
Let’s think of a simple goal such as writing more in your journal (thanks Dana and Tonya :-D), daily visualization, meditation or drinking 64 oz of water. These are simple “daily goals” that are easy to fall out of the habit of doing. It’s early enough in the year to get a “like minded” buddy on board to hold each other accountable to get your consistency going!
Another approach is a “habit tracking” app. I personally use, the Strides app for iPhone and it allows you to identify habits that you want to track with daily reminders of when your task should be completed for the day. This has been an incredible help with keeping my daily goals “front and center”, so that they never are out of sight then out of mind. There are many other “goal/habit tracking” apps available for your phone and if you’re serious about making the life change, I would suggest adding the app and reminders to your daily regimen.
Whether it’s a virtual partner like an app or a real friend that you check in with, there is no way you should leave these goals to your memory. We’re all creatures of habit and what’s easy to do, is also easy not to do. Make the shift, get a buddy on board and do your part to create the new habits that give you the results you’re looking for this year and beyond!!
Make it a great 2018!! VA
