Event + Response = Outcome

E+R=O is all about your mindset and the new year is a good time to reframe your mindset. Although you can always make a goal for yourself, most people make a new year's resolution on January 1st.

"In one study, only around 12% of people who make New Year's resolutions felt that they were successful in achieving their goals." (10 Great Tips to Keep Your New Year's Resolutions by Kendra Cherry)

So how can we successfully complete our goals or resolutions that we have created for ourselves? Choose a specific goal and create a plan of things you will do to achieve it. Limit yourself to one goal so you are not overwhelmed.

If your goal is to lose weight. How much weight do you want to lose in a month? Will you go on a diet? What are some recipes you can use for your diet? Will you go the gym? What days will you go to the gym.

Remember to start small and create an achievable plan. If you aren't used to being on a diet don't quit eating sweets all together because it will be very difficult. If you aren't used to going to the gym maybe commit to going during the weekday and only for 30 minutes. Start small so achieving your goal is not a difficult challenge.

Your motivation may start to dwindle so give yourself a visual reminder of what you are working towards, like a post it note on your mirror.
