Last night my husband and I were discussing the quickly arriving new year and the old tradition of new year’s resolutions. Funny that each year we set them … and each year we dismiss them!
I do like to make my resolutions every year. I write them down in a little notebook and carry them around and look at them every so often. Do I keep them? Sort of. Not really. Maybe.
However, Keith reminded me of an excellent tool I discovered last year by a company I adore: Lululemon. (Their pants may be pricey but they sure do feel good, are made very well, and last forever! Hit the sale rack.) Lululemon strongly believes in goal setting and they provide a great tool on their site called Goaltender.
Goals set using this tool are less new year’s goals and more life goals, but hey, now’s a good time! The premise is that by really determining your ambitions, writing them down and focusing on them via this path, you truly set your sights on achieving your resolutions.
Last year I set my one year, five year, and 10 year goals, and then … well, I forgot about them. That is, until Lululemon sent me an email that said, “Hey, have you reached your goal?” Funnily enough, I had!
Give their tool a try. Or, do you have a better method to create – and keep! – your resolutions?
Happy New Year!
