Every year I feel compelled to write SOMETHING down as a New Year resolution for an attainable goal. All over blogland I found a couple of posts that intrigued me even more about this yearly tradition. At Fairy Dust Teaching Sally Haughay has a workbook to work through what worked and didn't in 2012 and to map out a way to navigate through 2013 to avoid what didn't work. Smart thinking, but that's too much work for me. She researched the history of New Year resolutions. She discovered only 1% those that do not write down their resolutions accomplished them. Those who wrote their resolutions down attained them at 44%. Wow! Validates the theory of putting in the mind and writing it down makes it concrete. I've been a firm believer in this action.
I also researched resolutions on Marelisa Febrega's blog Daring to Live Fully. I like her upbeat posts chuck full of positive living ideas. Her post today is about the A 365- Day Project which is associated with photograph yby taking a photo every day. She adapts this concept to New Year resolutions. Marelisa offers several projects to create a habit that makes your goals attainable. She offered 25 ideas.
I combed her list and came up with a list of daily resolutions to get me to my end of year goals. Take a look at her blog I took a few from her list and adjusted a few more to make an even 12.
