At the outset let me thank all my readers, blog followers and well wishers for your encouragement, feedback and support over the past two years. Let me also wish each one of you a Very Happy and Prosperous New Y ear 2012 “Clothe with life the weak intent, let me be the thing I meant.” John Greenleaf Whittier Every individual resolves to make at least one resolution during the New Y ear, w hich he/she hopes to faithfully adhere too during the course of the year. In reality many of us actually have more than one hope, expectation, resolution that w e secretly aim to achieve. The overw helming majority of us, unfortunately end up w ith regrets and excuses for either completely abandoning most of the resolutions or vainly attempting a few . This is invariably follow ed by a temporary fervor to once again make a fresh set of resolutions and a short lived attempt at it. Are there w ays and means to help one achieve one’s resolutions? Outlined is a 5 step method to go about making resolutions that can be achieved. Think carefully write clearly. Resolutions are nothing but goals ones sets for oneself. Obviously therefore one must think carefully, ponder insightfully and commit w holeheartedly by w riting dow n the resolution. Many of us have a vague notion of a goal e.g. make more money or get a good job or enhance my savings. The adjectives only obfuscate our real desires. Instead make the resolution more tangible so that one can visualize it clearly.

A fixed time allocated to record expenses w ill bring about the disciple also to collect bills as w ell as make you think tw ice before you actually spend. Similarly one w ould explore alternatives to enhance income only if one seriously sits dow n and explores possibilities. Make a commitment aloud. This does not mean shouting from the roof tops (this can also help too) but refers to ensuring that the w ritten goals are keep visible so that one is often forced to look at it. Maybe a copy of it can be pasted on the mirror on your room or a small list put in your w allet or the list is put on your computer as a start up icon that pops up on booting. An alternative is to actually share some of your resolutions w ith close friend and w ell w ishers w ho can keep reminding you of it off and on. Never let slippages become excuses. For various reasons, despite ones best efforts one may not be able to faithfully adhere to the time slots allocated. Many of us take that first slippage as a fatal failure and let tardiness and casualness overcome us. This is a fatal mistake. Never let such slippages bind you in its clutches. Instead be aw are of the slippages and make a determined effort to
