A resolution can be anything from wanting to travel more, losing weight, spending more time with family or even learning to paint. If you didn’t make a resolution this year, maybe there is something that you want to accomplish in the New Year.
Your resolution could be a dream you had when you were a little boy or girl. It could even be something that you recently learned about when scrolling through your Facebook feed. It doesn’t matter the inspiration, it’s now time for perspiration.
The experts at Forbes recommend the following tips to see your resolution or goal until the end:
Keep it simple
Some of us would love to visit the moon or visit every country next year, but those goals sound glamorous and are going to be very difficult to achieve. The experts recommend simple and attainable goals.
Make it tangible
The purpose is to break down your larger goal into more manageable and attainable goals. You should also be very specific with your goals.

You will need a way to track and monitor your goals. Write them on a to-do list, put them on your calendar or a post-it note on your fridge.
One of the best ways is to tell your family and friends about your goal. You can post it on your Facebook wall, tell your best friend or tell your neighbor. It’s doesn’t matter who you tell just tell somebody. They can help keep you motivated.
