One Step Daily

Most people do not stick to their New Year's resolutions because they focus on the entire task.

By just focusing on the daily small steps, one is able to create a successful daily routine.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Gretchen Rubin
What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while.
Keep It Practical

Dial back your goal for the New Year to be a more practical, pragmatic one, and your chances of success will rise dramatically.

Don't be too hard on yourself.

Be Specific

Don't have vague resolutions with no direction for the New Year. Have clear, specific goals for your daily routine like "run around the park for 10 to 20 minutes every morning."

10 Minutes

A ten-minute commitment to keeping a habit going can work wonders if done every day and is easier to maintain.

Trial Period

If committing to a new habit for a whole year seems overwhelming, have a 30 Day Trial and see if you stick to it.

Be Nice to Yourself

If you miss a day or two in your daily habit forming a routine, it's ok. Get back to it.

Losing weight

As we know, exercise in any form makes us better.

Instead of complicating the process and making it a big event, just smoothen the daily process. Make a habit of going out to exercise by getting up early, wearing the right clothes, packing the gym bag at night, so that you remove friction from the activity.

The W.O.O.P. Technique can work to make you focus on what is to be done:

  • Wish: What is your goal?
  • Outcome: What will result from attaining that goal?
  • Obstacle: Knowing yourself, think about the obstacles or hurdles that could stop you from achieving your goal.
  • Plan: How do you plan to take care of  the whole process?
