15 Different Tips

Statistics show that only about 15% of New Years goals are maintained. It is no wonder that the amount of resolutions made is dropping. A strategy that fails over four fifths of the time is broken. The question is how do you fix it?

Most resolutions come in the form of habit modifications. Quitting smoking, hitting the gym and staying organized are all based on routine habits. I have spent the last couple years changing habits. Training myself to become organized, exercise regularly, eat healthy, wake up early and work productively.

I believe that most New Year’s Resolutions fail because folks approach them wrong. Rather than developing a strategy for modifying habits, most individuals try to rely on willpower. Although willpower and motivation can get you through the first week or two, it cannot last forever. There’s no perfect formula, but after changing dozens of habits in myself over the last few years, I can offer a couple of suggestions:

1. Create a Trigger. A trigger is a particular ritual you perform whenever you get a special cue. This ritual centers you on performing your habit, instead of sliding into old vices. Snapping your fingers when you feel the enticement to smoke; leaping out of bed at the sound of your alarm or repeating, “do it now!” to yourself are all triggers designed to kick your habit off. Practice your trigger and it will become automatic, overriding your default behaviors.

2. Replace Lost Needs. Most habits fulfill a purpose of some kind, even if the side-effects are damaging. You might watch television to relax, even if you have other things you would rather do. You might eat junk food to feel full, even if it isn’t healthy. Consider what you’re giving up in your habit change and make an effort to replace those lost needs.

3. Write It in Ink. A commitment inside your head is not a commitment at all. Keep a binder where you are able to store written commitments for habit changes. Not only will writing reinforce a promise to yourself, it will clarify your thinking as to what exactly you would like to change.

4. Commit for a Month. Stick to your change for at the very least thirty days. Less than this and you’re likely to fall back into old habits. Three to four weeks is all it takes to shape a new habit.

5. Keep a Journal. Open a new word document and commit to writing a couple of sentences every day about your progress. I have found this method helpful in reminding me about my commitment and helping me center on the change I would like to make.

6. Increase Positive Feedback. If you reward your behavior it will increase. Punish a behavior and it will be reduced. This feedback mechanism is common to all animals with a nervous system from sea slugs to human beings. If your new habit makes you feel worse than the old habits, it can’t last.

7. Strategic Enjoyment. One way to create more positive feedback is to structure your habit so it becomes more fun. Going to the gym isn’t the only way to exercise if you hate it. Eating tofu isn’t the only meal option for vegetarians. Look for ways you can make a new habit more enjoyable.

8. Think Years, Not Months. A diet that consists of grapefruit and water isn’t going to provide nutritional needs to last your whole life. Work on creating changes to your diet, work, exercise or routines that can be sustained for years. Crash diets and 18-hour workdays will eventually break.

9. If You Slip Up, Start Over. I consider a habit change complete when I can go thirty consecutive days. If you slip up and break your habit on the 3rd, 15th, or 27th day, start over. This keeps you from cheating on days with the excuse that you will resume the day afterwards.

10. Behavior First, Results Later. Don’t let watching the scale or your bank account discourage you when trying to change a habit. The correct change in behavior has to come before any results start to appear. Focusing too much on losing weight, working less or being rich and throw off your attempts to form good habits.

11. One Habit at a Time. Don’t tackle several changes at once. Successfully conditioning one habit change is more useful than giving up on a half dozen changes after a month.

12. Learn From Mistakes. This one is pretty obvious, but it’s surprising how many people when they fail to make a change, go back to using the exact same strategy. Figure out why you failed previously, and don’t be too quick to blame willpower.

13. Consistency Counts. A habit that is performed the same way, at the same time and under the same conditions every day for a month will be reinforced far more strongly than one that changes throughout the week. Be consistent and you can spend less time reinforcing a habit.

14. Create a Habits List. When I started changing habits I created a list of all the changes I would like to make. Each month I’d pick one change and focus on it until I could cross it off the list. This method can focus your enthusiasm so you don’t take

15. Get help -> It’s been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that social support is the single biggest predictor of success in making ANY change. Surrounding yourself with like-minded people, positive role models and supportive friends and family will practically ensure your success. Don’t just count on yourself, recruit an entire team towards the completion of your goal.


Many individuals make resolutions for the New Year. It is all about change and improvement and it can be a great adventure, but keeping the resolutions is a whole different story.

Keeping Your Goals

Many individuals make resolutions for the New Year. It is all about change and improvement and it can be a great adventure, but keeping the resolutions is a whole different story.

The attempt to keep a New Year’s resolution is fresh at the beginning of the year, but that effort fades, often just a couple of days into the month of January. With work, school, family and friends, it can be difficult to maintain focus on resolutions. There are ways to make sure you remain on track when working towards goals.

Constant reminding is the key to keeping yourself on target. You set the goal, so it would be unfair to let the year glide by with the excuse that you merely forgot. Get a calendar and a sharpie pen. Write down something that will remind you of your resolution in bold letters at the start of each week.

Find something that you look at each day, like the mirror or your cellular phone. Put a post-it note on the mirror and set you cell phones alarm for a certain part of the day when you need to remember. All of this can be simply cast to the side once you begin to annoy yourself, so recruit a couple of friends who would be willing to bother you further. You have to stay focused, after all.

Nothing will set you up for disappointment more than setting unattainable resolutions. If your goal is to slim down over this year, have a sensible number in mind, rather than in the triple digits. You need a resolution that will be only slightly intimidating, but something you believe you are able to accomplish with a good deal of hard work.

You cannot jump up to the top of the stairs while you are at the bottom. You have to take it step by step. Set lower goals for yourself, perhaps throughout the week, that will help you keep track of your progress. Doing this takes the stress and burden off of yourself from trying to obtain the big goal by the end of the year. The lower, more personal goals will boost your confidence.

Accomplishing what you set out to do, even if it’s something small, is cause for celebration. The whole point to setting resolutions is to make you a better person and to feel good. Your resolutions may be tough, but these little parties are lights at the end of the tunnel. Desperation can often sneak in as the stress of the year starts pressing all around you, so this will be a good way to blow off steam and invigorate yourself. Every step on your journey brings you closer to your resolution at the end of the year, so stay positive.
