You think: “I’m going to spend less, work out more and get promoted.” Creating a resolution that’s too big or too vague sets you up for failure. The first key to success: zeroing in on one goal, not three. Then do a quick reality check. “Look at the level of commitment it will require to achieve, and consider if you’ll be able to match it,” says Larry Kubiak, Ph.D., director of psychological services at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Are you really going to be able to swear off chocolate completely? Unlikely. Limiting your Hershey’s Kisses eating to a few times a week would be much more achievable. Which brings us to the second success tip: getting specific. “The more detailed you can be—’I’m going to save $30 a week by eating out one fewer meal’—the less difficult it is to stay focused on what you have to do to succeed,” Kubiak says.
