Determine your most productive time of the day and dedicate it to “I” time. I time is for you to do whatever you have to do that will bring you closer to achieving your goals, or new year resolutions. It may be as simple as visualizing the accomplishment of your goals or doing what you have to do just for you. The point is to dedicate the most productive time to the most important person in the world – YOU!
Keeping New Year Resolutions, and following through on goals, requires that same determination, self-discipline and effort to be successful. First let’s understand the meaning of each of these words.
- Determination is the power or habit of deciding definitely and firmly with a direction to a certain end result.
- Discipline is a commitment to yourself, to do what you have to do even when you don’t want to do it.
- Effort is amount of the total work done to reach a particular end result.
- Success is the progressive realization of worthwhile goals.
Goals are resolutions – that is what motivates us. Resolutions, like goals, are our desires. Without goals or resolutions, there is no reason to act, no motivation to take daily actions or go the extra mile.
