At the beginning of this year, we here at Heritage, wrote a few articles about New Years Resolutions. I am writing this post as a follow up. Call it cyber-accountability. So, how are those resolutions coming? If you are like most, you probably had a couple of days early in January that you thought about your resolution then said to yourself, "Oh shoot, I don't have time now, I will do it tomorrow." Then tomorrow comes, you have completely forgotten and next thing you know, it's June. Let's get back on track shall we?

Secondly, write it down. This time on some sticky notes, put them in some routine places; mirrors, doors, ceilings, floors (?)... And also put them in some odd places; fridge, on the TV remote, inside your house slippers, etc.

Third, tell people about your goal. Let those who are closest with you know about your goals. Tell your coworkers if it's appropriate. But the more people you tell about your goals, the more people you will have on your side cheering you on.

Finally, don't get down on yourself for getting off track again. Most of us will get off track again in the next 72 hours. It's never too late to get back on track.
