08 Jan More on finding happiness via achieving those New Year Resolutions and Goals
My post (a few days ago) on finding happiness via goal achievement seemed very popular so here’s some more about how to make those New Year Resolutions become a reality…
This time, Emily vanSonnenberg continues her writing with a list of the most common goals (e.g. losing weight, drinking less, managing debt and stress etc) AS WELL AS the reasons these goals are invariably linked to failure (e.g. they’re not specific enough!).
She goes on to review, once again, goal setting theory and provides clearer directions and a case study for more successful goal setting and achievement.
You can read more HERE but the lesson is pretty simple…if you’re looking to find at least part of your happiness in achieving goals then make sure you approach the goal setting process in an effective way and in particular, make sure you set specific goals.
Here at The Happiness Institute we’d love to hear about the goals you’re setting for 2011 and we’d love to help you move closer to making them a reality. Post your goals and resolutions on our Facebook Page and I’m sure our “happiness community” will support and assist you in your endeavours!
