New year planning

Posted by
04 Jan 2016
The start of a new year gives many people the opportunity to set plans and make resolutions for the year ahead.

If you are one of those people, what I would say is that you must make sure that you know how you are going to keep to your resolutions and how you will reach those all important goals you set yourself. Spend some time thinking about what you would like to achieve, then start planning and put together a course of action to put your goals into place. Above all, ensure that you adhere to what you set out to do, even if it gets a little tough at times.

I recently read an article that said according to a study approximately 75% of people do not stick to their new year’s resolutions. I also read that most people give up on their resolutions by the end of January! Don’t let 2016 be the year when you are one of those people that gives up so easily!

Perhaps there is a hobby that you’ve always wanted to try, a course you’ve always wanted to study or a charitable cause that you want to volunteer for. 2016 could well be the year that you acquire new skills that can be transferred to the workplace and help you with your career aspirations. Making changes and taking up new activities can open up some interesting avenues for you as well as widening your network.

It is said that it takes 21 days to make a change or form a habit so sticking with it in the first few weeks is important. Perseverance and the desire to achieve your outcome really is key. If you have set yourself a big goal or resolution, you can then break this down into smaller targets to help you along the way. This will help you to review your progress and provide you with a sense of achievement and also the motivation to keep going. The hardest step can often be the first one and before long, you will find yourself flying.

One of the popular new resolutions that people make is to change their job. If you are considering your career options this year, please give us a call in confidence on  0151 224 1480 to speak to one of our trusted and experienced consultants.
