From Resolution To Reality: Strategies for Achieving Your Goals in 2023

If you are like many Americans, you’ve probably set a New Year resolution. It could be fitness-related, nutrition, work, family, or whatever. Unfortunately, for most, that New Year resolution comes and goes without much effort being put into it and without any real long-term strategy put in place. People simply say, “I’m going to…” and then, four weeks later, have completely forgotten about the resolution they set for themselves.

In an effort to keep you on track, here are some key strategies to use so you can achieve your New Year resolution this year.

Be Realistic

The last thing you want to do when setting a New Year resolution is to make it impossible and set yourself up for failure before you even start. If you have a weight loss goal, don’t make it unreachable such as losing 50 pounds in one month — that’s not attainable or realistic. If it’s work-related, don’t say you want to make $100,000 each month when right now, you’re only making $3,000.

You need to be realistic with your New Year resolution. The fastest way to give up and quit something is by making the end goal impossible to achieve. Sure, would people like to lose 50 pounds each month or make $100,000 per month? Absolutely. Will that become a reality for most? Unfortunately, no.

There’s nothing wrong with breaking down goals into smaller, more manageable steps that are relatively simple. What you can do is set a lofty long-term goal and then have a bunch of smaller short-term goals that will lead you down the path of achieving your bigger goal.

KISS Method

Too many people like to overcomplicate things. There’s no reason for it. Why would you want to make things harder on yourself? Look, there’s nothing wrong with pushing yourself, but in the end, you don’t want to shoot yourself in the foot and give up. Keep it simple.

The KISS method is a simple yet effective approach to achieving goals. KISS stands for Keep It Simple and Straightforward. The idea behind this method is that you can increase your chances of success by simplifying your goals and breaking them down into small, manageable steps.

One of the key principles of the KISS method is to set specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound (SMART) goals. Your goals should be clear, realistic, and have a deadline. Setting SMART goals allows you to track your progress and make adjustments as needed.

Something else many people do is try to achieve several of their goals all at once. This becomes quite the juggling act. Focus on one New Year resolution at a time and as you reach one, move on to the next.

Have a Measurable Timeframe

Anyone can set a goal without a timeframe. But those same people will probably never reach their New Year resolution goals. Having a timeframe is your barometer for success. It’s what helps keep you on track and motivated to keep pushing forward. Use a diary or your calendar to schedule parts of your resolution to ensure they get done on time.

If you are trying to lose weight, use a diary or your calendar to insert your workout schedule for the week and lay down your timeframe moving forward. Your best bet is to put your workouts directly in your calendar so you never have an excuse that something came up and you can’t exercise. By writing it all down in a diary or calendar, you can evaluate if you are holding true to your word that you want to achieve a specific goal by following certain steps (such as exercising multiple times each week).

Get a Support Team in Place

A support team is a great way to hold yourself accountable because if you don’t do it, you know your team will. With the right team surrounding you, there are no excuses. You have appointed them to help you see your New Year resolution through to the end. If you start to slip, they are there to encourage you to stand back up, brush yourself off, and get back to work.

Find friends or family members who are supportive and honest. You don’t want a team that will let you get complacent because they don’t want to hurt your feelings. You want people who will tell you the truth and hold you accountable for your actions (or lack thereof). Explain to them what you expect of them to help keep you on track. Call it “tough love” if you want. But having that team around you will give you the support you need when you start to waver and aren’t sure if you can keep going.
