With the New Year upon us, many people hope to start 2012 refreshed, energized, and motivated.  That energy and motivation within has led to the tradition of setting “New Year’s Resolutions”.  But why do we make them and what are the key factors in accomplishing them?  Many people simply have a desire to want to do something better than they had before.  Each individual’s resolutions will of course be different.  They are dependent upon a great number of factors, including aspirations, family, health, and career.  But no matter what one’s current situation is, if done with care, planning, and honesty, resolutions can lay out a path for your journey into the year ahead.  It will be necessary to maintain discipline as you monitor progress and make course corrections.  But if you stick with your plan you will be able to accomplish the resolutions (aka goals!).  So, don’t let the clock strike twelve on December 31st without taking time to evaluate and analyze the last 365 days and visualize where you want to be and what you want to accomplish in the next 365 days.  (Well, actually 366 days because 2012 is a leap year!)

Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!
