A new year, a new change?
Monday, January 05, 2015
It is officially 2015. It has been for five days.
I just received my FitBit Flex in the mail today. I used to have the FitBit Ultra but it stopped working. It's a wristband and its really nice. I need to actually use it though.
Since it's a new year, many people make new years resolutions to make a change in their lives. Although a change can be made at any time, the new year has become the catalyst for a reinvention, of sorts. For the last few years, I have made resolutions but have not followed through on any of them. The problem is that I have unrealistic expectations and end up not even coming close to my goal. I think that I have to make my resolutions SMART which stands for Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Based. Resolutions or goals that are SMART are much more likely to be reached because it provides a specific context to reaching the goal other than "I want to lose 40 pounds". I need to make SMART resolutions and hopefully I will be committed enough to make a change.
What are your new years resolutions for 2015?
