Pillars For Success
Experts say, starting now is the choice that could boost that New Year’s resolution from a pattern to a habit by January’s end.Increase your chances for successfully completing your New Year’s resolutions by following these THREE pillars.
Proper planning on paper (or smartphone) is important. A reasonable goal for someone is a SMART goal. A smart goal is one that is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound.
Write it down. One way to measure success is by marking a calendar or an app with each run. Achievability of a goal should be based on your current patterns. For those who currently don’t run at all, a goal to “run 2 days per week for 20 minutes” is a smarter initial choice for long-term success.
The key is to keep going. The process of getting through the lapse and successfully getting back on track usually happens within the first 60 days.
