S.M.A.R.T New Year’s Resolutions

By definition, our resolutions have the ability to change the things that prevent us from being happy and becoming better people – and yet, accomplishing such necessities is never easy.

In fact, studies have shown that whilst we are completely decided on our goals on the 1st of January, we have all but forgotten them by February.

With the S.M.A.R.T model we are sharing with you today, we would like to remind you of the importance of your resolutions, and help you accomplish your goals – whatever they may be!

 S: Stretch yourself

Success springs from making dynamic choices, not by being bound to old habits and beliefs. Holding on to these old habits or beliefs that do not nurture or help us grown, can often cloud our understanding of other possibilities in the workplace that would lead to greater success. Challenge yourself to change your perspective on events, and interpret meaning accordingly.

M: Master your life

Success needs to be measured, so make everything count! What are the results of your dynamic choices, and how do they help define success to you? Make sure when stating ‘I want to be successful’, you ask yourself, ‘How will I achieve success?’ Your ideas and thoughts can be expressed powerfully or powerlessly – by making your goals measurable, you are making them count!

A: Agree with your inner and outer self

Values form the basis of an unwritten agreement with yourself, promising that you will make decisions that are congruent with you and your beliefs. Knowing and living by our values allows us to build nurturing and successful relationships with ourselves, our workplace and the world around us. To discover your highest values, contact our Health & Wellbeing Coach, Maria Ganis on 98797461.

R: Record reality

Goals often become tedious, laborious and unreal when they are not congruent with your values. Alternatively, when they are congruent with our values, the path to the end result is clear and fun. Therefore, when setting goals, be real! Ask yourself if your goals are congruent with your values so that you can perform to the best of your ability, knowledge and skills.

T: Time Teacher

Time can sometimes be perceived as ‘the mother of all burdens.’ So with that being said, do not try to master time. Instead, master what you do in that time. When prioritising tasks and goals, ask yourself, ‘How can I use what I have effectively to create the outcome I need to succeed?’
