The end of the year AND the decade is here. Tomorrow starts a new round. So, if you're serious about turning a new leaf there is a way.
Specific
Measurable
Achievable
Relevant
Time-bound

These criteria are what makes a goal a SMART goal. This is a PDF file that takes the concept and leaves it Broken down and explained if, again, you're really serious about making a change in your life. The main thing is this: your resolution/goal has to be specific. Not something general like "I want to lose weight". How much and how long will you give yourself?

Happy New Year everyone!

Every time this is mentioned, I remember how setting goals and objectives can be difficult. How has this process been, and how long did it take you to put everything into perspective?

This seems to be a discussion for mature audiences only. It drives home the fact that resolutions are goals without a focus. But if I have made a resolution for the new year, it's that I plan on keeping a keener focus on what I need to do rather than what I want to do.

On the surface, that sounds rather general. But I get the feeling it's not. Without going into personal detail, could you expand on what you mean by that? You might be able to help out a few people with their goal setting.

In my view, resolutions are general statements that don't address the "how-to" aspect of whatever we want to achieve. From experience, goal and objective setting seem complicated, probably because of the methods used.
