As we approach mid January, I am sure that most of you have already started working towards your New Year’s resolutions and some of us have already given up, and that is okay. Many people wait for the New Year to begin to start making a major change in their lives but tend to get discouraged quickly. Goals really don’t matter unless you start working towards them today. So even if you started and stopped you can start again. Remember, we are all going to stumble along the way, we are human. What we must remember in order to achieve what we are reaching for, we must be constantly moving forward.
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Christine Carter who is a Sociologist, author and writer of an award winning blog that is syndicated on the Huffington Post and Psychology Today. We talked about the benefits of teaching children at a young age about the importance of setting New Year’s resolutions as well as advice on how we can ensure we achieve our goals. She draws on psychology and neuroscience to demonstrate the does and don’ts on getting results you want.
Have you set any New Year’s resolutions? How are you staying accountable?
