    Hi all,

    First time poster here. I want to share with anyone who wants to improve their life to seriously consider making a new year’s resolution.

    I have made NYRs since I was a child and they rarely work. As I did more research on how successful people get things done, I started to change the way I write my NYRs.

    I wrote my first successful NYRs in the last days of December 2017. At the time I was a single guy living with my parents. I was depressed, I was unhappy with my job and I was in poor health. Fast forward 3 years, I now have my own house, a wife who I have traveled the world with and is more supportive and compatible with me than anyone I have ever met in my life and a new job with great co-workers, (mostly) meaningful work and a significantly higher income.

    The trick to writing successful NYRs is simple: Don’t write down what you want, but how to get there.

    In the past, I would write down things like become a millionaire or have my own business or get straight As in school. Without a clear path, you will never reach those goals.

    For example, if your goal is to get a better job, write down things you can do to attain that. It could be applying to jobs online or reaching out to people on your LinkedIn.

    When you have the list, break it down to small attainable tasks and revisit them every week. I had my NYR glued on my bedroom wall and I read it every morning when I wake up. One item on my list was to hit the gym at least 3 times a week. It helped me lose over 20ibs and regain my health. Another item is to reach out to at least 1 person every week for job networking, that led me to meeting someone who referred me to my current job. Break your goals into small, easy to do tasks. One step a day doesn’t seem much, but multiple that over 365 days in a year and you would have climbed an entire mountain.

    Good luck, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
