Achieve your resolutions/goals this year!

Resolutions! Goals! At this time of year we often pause, reflect, and take stock of where we have been, where we are right now, and where we want to go. Many of us create resolutions or goals, whether formally or informally. Some resist the idea of resolutions and instead just make a commitment to improvement as things arise. It does not matter what you call them or how or why you set your goals, all that matters is that you recognize areas where you feel you are falling short or areas of your life or in your business that can be improved upon.

The most common resolutions are shown in the graphic above. May I suggest that Get Organized be the first one you tackle as it will support the achievement of the other two, and any others you may have on your list. When you are more organized, you will be able to schedule in your gym time or walks (Improve Health); your finances will be organized, and you will more conscious of your spending and savings goals (Spend less, save more). Additionally,  you will be in proactive mode versus reactive mode, which puts you in the driver’s seat, and who doesn’t like to be the driver in their own life? 

In short, being more organized saves you time, saves you money, and enhances your peace of mind.

What’s that worth to you?

That last sentence bears repeating: Being more organized saves you time, saves you money, and enhances your peace of mind. What IS that worth to you?

Just the facts

According to a statistics, New Year’s resolutions typically fall by the wayside by February, and only 8% of people who actually set goals are able to achieve them. {Read this article if Improve Health is on your list.}

There are many reasons why our goals fail. Personally, I believe the biggest reason is because they are often unrealistic, under-defined, and they require work, consistency, and a change in behavior. That’s right! WORK and CONSISTENCY and a willingness to change BEHAVIOR. That’s tough stuff!

There is no magic here, folks. Just a willingness to get help when you need it; to work through the process, and to make a firm commitment to incorporate new and improved habits into your life. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, take advantage of my blog posts. Use the search function to find articles, tips, or techniques that may assist you in your endeavor of getting organized this year. 

If you tend to start and not finish projects, or set goals then not complete them, aligning with a coach, accountability partner, or someone with expertise in the area you in which you wish to improve will exponentially increase your chances of success. 

And that’s where I come in

The benefits of a more organized life simply cannot be understated here. You do not have to go it alone. You do not have to figure out where to start. You do not have to continue to live in chaos. You do not have to experience those feelings of shame, embarrassment, and inadequacy. I will help you, I will guide you. I will not just TELL you what to do, I will do the work WITH you! Advantage YOU!  

Start off the New Year by tackling the one goal/resolution that supports all the others, “Get Organized.” It is the easiest one to accomplish; has the quickest pay-off; it is the one you have help with; and the one that will set you up for an amazing year! Are you ready to Get Started?

And the best part is that help is a simple phone call away.

Still not comfortable with the AMAZING change that is about to occur?

Here are the words of a few of my past clients. Their experiences and words are different, but the underlying theme is the same and that is, I turn “Chaos into Calm.”™
