Check-in with Yourself, Check-out a Book

By Amy

So it’s January 15th, how’s your new year’s resolution coming along? By this time in the New Year, 30% of resolution setters have already given up. But that doesn’t mean you have to!

Back in September, I wrote “Happy New You” where I talked about how to set SMARTER goals. One of the things you should do when trying to achieve your goals is evaluate your progress. Are you on track to meet your first “goal post?”

Do you need to adjust your goal? Don’t let your lack of progress sabotage you. Now is a great time to see if what you’ve been doing is working or whether you need to shake things up a bit. As long as you’re working towards your goals, you will get there- even if it’s not as quickly as you’d wanted.

It’s always better late than never! If you forgot to make a resolution for the New Year, take a look at the top 10 resolutions made for 2014 below. Pick one and get started!

Enough nagging, on to the good stuff!
