Resolutions

darkchocolateWe are day eleven into the new year, and I’m wondering how everyone is doing with their resolutions. Granted my goal to eat healthy may be sunk as I have already eaten my second piece of dark chocolate today—so worth it by the way. But gratefully, I’m hanging onto my more realistic goals that involve writing and exercise. Here are a couple tips for all of us to make it another month or so with our goals.

    1. Write them down. Make the goal concrete and tangible by writing it down. Then place it where you can read it frequently. I like the electronic sticky pad on my computer desktop or the front of my writing binder.
    2. Get back up. I’m constantly watching my ten month old stumble, fall, and bash his head as he is learning to walk. It is painful, no doubt. He has the bruises to show for it. When working towards our goals, falling down is part of the process. Just get back up.
    3. Be held accountable. Tell your goals to a friend, a co-worker, instructor, or you can even post them here in the comment section. Make sure someone knows, and it is even better if they will want a report of how you fared. For writers, I recommend starting or joining a writing community. Find others with similar goals that will hold you accountable and push you to progress.

One of my goals was to create a personal blog and online presence. So please feel free to me on this journey at www.deannabrowne.com, on twitter @BrowneBooks, or on Facebook. My first blog is on joining this great online community. Thanks for the support, and I wish you the best in this new year!
