It’s the New Year, which means that whole new batches of New Year’s resolutions are coming. As the clock strikes closer to midnight, it’s not difficult to declare that next year you’ll fare better. Do better in what? Will you start going vegan and exercise daily? Will you promise to learn a new instrument every month? Perhaps, you want to stop procrastinating? Well, let us be the first to tell you that you’re on the path to failure. These are simply unrealistic goals and quitting them is easier since they’re labeled as “resolutions.”
Instead, why don’t you go for learning lessons that will serve you in the long run for the coming year? Let us give you an example:
Eat Better and Be More Active

Let’s be sensible for a moment; you’re not likely going to visit the gym daily and only eat veggies. Try some easy leg exercises using the above video. Not only is that establishing the bar a little high, but it’s not needed. Begin with a visit to the gym once weekly, or walking rather than taking the bus from time to time. In terms of your diet, you don’t have to follow extreme diet plans – just make an effort to keep a healthy balance.
Manage Your Money Better
It’s not easy to keep an eye on our hard-earned money, particularly during the holidays. One moment it’s there, the next it’s gone. This coming year, set up some practical steps that will help you keep a closer eye on your money and expenses. You can find applications such as TrackMySpend to aid you to budget and manage your expenses.
Fail Early and Fail Often
Failures are definitely the stepping stones to achieve success. Without failing, you will never figure out how to become successful. This doesn’t mean that you should go out of your way to fail. Just don’t fear failure as it will surely paralyze you and prevent you from achieving great things or reaching your goals.
Enjoy Life More
This may sound like the vaguest lesson possible but this is all up to you. You have to be specific with regards to enjoying your life more. Does this imply traveling the world and often? Should it mean spending time with friends and loved ones more? Be crystal clear with regards to exactly what you wish to do, and then you can easily determine what you need to do to ensure that you keep going.
