Consider using this easy to remember acronym when making your "New Year's Resolutions" or setting general short & long-term goals for work, your personal life, based on your health goals, financial, etc:
1. Write them down. (and hopefully look at them regularly)
2. Be flexible and readjust, revisit your goals if needed.
3. Don't be too hard on yourself. (this is very important)
We hope your 2012 is off to a great start!
