New Year, New You?


Will you succeed at your New Years resolutions? Probably not, if you set your goals too high. I’ve started making small changes in everything I do. Small goals, small victories. Small goals take the stress out of reaching that goal. If you want to lose 100 pounds, try losing 10 first. If you want to fix your road rage problem, try only sideswiping 5 cars a day. You can’t just quit that behavior overnight. Changing your habits will lead to lasting results.

Of course, if you don’t set any goals it will be hard to let yourself down. Most people will give up around February, they may even make it until March. The micro resolution will provide much more satisfaction and get you where you need to be, slower, but steady.
