Some of us don’t bother with either resolutions or goals. We go about our days and do what absolutely has to be done – sometimes at the last minute, sometimes too late – and leave the rest for later (or someone else).
Some of us set goals – like quitting smoking, joining a new exercise program or eating a healthier diet but just can’t get started. Sometimes we start off great but get sidelined by unexpected obstacles.
A few have been successful at meeting many of the goals they have set. The first two keys to their success are (1) motivation (They chose the right goals for themselves – what they cared about) and (2) planning (They achieved a number of incremental goals.
