Can you believe it's already been a whole week in 2019!? I know a lot of people have made New Year resolutions, but many can never keep up with them. Maybe you've already given up. I am one of these people. By February I've already lost my resolutions list! So this year I'm trying a new tactic that you may want to try too! Instead of just writing goals for a whole year, write goals for each month. Say that you were trying to break a habit or start a new one, by giving yourself a more specific smaller portioned version, you can increase the chances of actually achieving it. Additionally, you could give yourself a reward, such as ice cream or time for yourself, at the end of each month when you have accomplished a goal or even just the first month of it. Now, there are some goals that you can't put on a timeline. Those you can put in your whole year list. Like for example, I want a car this year, so my monthly goals would be to save up $30 a month in order to save up for the car. Your goals have to be DAPS
When put this way, you are more likely to actually achieve them this year! I wish you the best of luck and I know you can do it!
Here's my January Resolutions!
1. Read the Bible at least once a day, everyday
2. Focus on my current friendships and make time for them
3. Complete a whole month of devotions in my 2019 devotional
4. Start volunteering at the animal shelter
