This week’s Fierce resource was originally published by Inc.com and shares ten practical New Year’s resolutions that you can actually accomplish in 2017.
It can be very tempting to start the New Year off with grandiose plans that include overly ambitious resolutions. The reason that most people cannot fulfill their New Year resolutions is simply because they set the bar too high. It is always a great idea to get healthy and save money, but be practical. Start with a 10K instead of diving right into that marathon you want to run.
Per Rhett Power, Inc., try to improve your 2017 by setting resolutions and goals that can be accomplished and add real value to your life. A few of these modest resolutions include:
- Reconnect. Try to call up someone you have been missing and would like to catch up with. It doesn’t have to be an all-day extravaganza. Simply letting the person know you are thinking of them can go a long way.
- Go somewhere alone. The New Year is a great time to reflect on all facets of your life. With 2016 in the rear view it is important to make time to relax and reflect. Try going for a long walk or dinner and see if you feel recharged.
- Free up digital space. Create a truly fresh start by going through your phone, computer and email and purging everything that is no longer needed. You’ll be amazed by how organized and efficient you feel.
