Is it Time to Revisit New Year's Resolutions?

Are you on your way to achieving your New Year’s resolution, or has it already been tossed out the window? Maybe it’s time to try something called the “90-Day Sprint.” Scott Addis, CEO of Beyond Insurance offers a few suggestions:

1. Be confident. 

People who are confident have improved performance. They believe in their abilities and that the approach they are taking is the most optimal. It also involves having clear and reasonable ways to achieve a goal in a shorter, specified time frame.

2. Have a three-month action plan.

This is a much more measurable, timely, and tangible way to set up a goal rather than having a year-long goal. Three-month plans can be built upon one another to ultimately achieve one final result at the end of a year.

3. Use the “SMART” acronym.

Have your goal be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and timely. Write the goal down and keep progress notes on them.

4. Choose high-priority goals

Work towards them from highest to least priority. It’s also good to reflect on them too.

Once you conquer one three-month goal, you can move onto the next one or a different one. Maybe that New Year’s resolution will finally be achieved.
