2014 is officially here! We’ve had a great year at Blue Sky MD, and we’re looking forward to even more success in the New Year. Our staff are sharing their New Year’s resolutions, as well as tips to keeping your goals.
Giving Back in 2014
Keep It Simple
My tip is to set simple, realistic goals. Tackle one goal at a time – do not overwhelm yourself. Another key to success is to have accountability; tell a family member, friend or co worker to keep yourself on track. -Kristen Hunter, RD, LDN
Measurable, Specific & Attainable
Keys to making a good goal? Three things. Make it measurable, specific, and attainable.
My goal this year will be to run an ultra-marathon. -Yuri Eliashevsky
My recommendation is make the goals realistic. My better half & I want to save money this year, so we’re doing the 52 week savings plan. We put a jar aside and for each week of the year, we add that amount of money to the jar. For instance, week 1 in the new year we will save $1 in the jar. Week 2 will be $2, and etc through the 52 weeks a year, and this way by the end of next year its a grand total of $1300 that each of us will have set aside. By doing it this way, we are able to set aside a realistic amount each week. Also because we’re doing it together, we’re held accountable. -Michelle Connell
