Well it’s now the beginning of 2007 and I’m sure many of you reading this have made some new years resolutions. As much as I hate to say it I’m sure many of you will probably fail at keeping your new years resolutions. Most people, not just people with ADD, fail to keep up with their News Years resolutions and end up giving up in mid January.
Don’t worry though! There are ways to help keep your resolutions!
Realistic Resolutions – Make sure that the resolutions you have made are actually realistic. If they aren’t then maybe it’s time to fine tune them a bit so they are realistic. Modifying your resolutions is not the same thing as failing to keep your resolutions.
Have a Plan – Telling yourself that you want to do something or are going to do something is only the first step. In order to actually get something done you need to have a plan of action. Start by writing down the steps that are actually involved in helping you keep your resolution.
Seek out Support – Going at it alone isn’t on a lot of cases isn’t the best options. Seeking out side resources to help with keeping a resolution is quite often more helpful. There are many different options for seeking support too. Talking to a friend, joining a support group, reading a book, taking a class, and working with a coach are all great resources for support.
