The busy (and unusually warm) holiday season has officially ended. With 2018 upon us, many of us are still finishing off the last of the holiday sweets and starting our New Year’s Resolutions. Whether you’re setting personal goals or a workplace safety plan for the upcoming year, we’ve got a few tips to keep in mind.
- Small goals bring big results. Don’t tackle your New Year’s Resolutions all at once. “Setting small, attainable goals throughout the year, instead of a singular, overwhelming goal on January 1 can help you reach whatever it is you strive for,” says psychologist Lynn Bufka from the American Psychological Association.
Start by creating a plan of action. If you want to manage your weight, keep a food journal to track daily nutritional intake. Or, if you want to change the safety culture of your workplace, start with one particular hazard. Taking baby steps will help you measure results on a gradual basis.
- Talk about it. Sometimes, it can be hard to hold ourselves accountable. Once you’ve set a plan of action, confide in trusted colleagues, family or friends to help you stay motivated.
Aiming for a healthier lifestyle? Find a friend who will go to the gym with you once a week. Taking the steps to improve workplace safety? Rely on the support of your staff to make results happen.
- Forgive yourself. No matter what you’re trying to achieve, mistakes will happen along the way. If you slip up and lose sight of your goal, don’t beat yourself up. Review your plan of action and if needed, make any adjustments to get on track again.
- Celebrate your milestones. Among the setbacks, don’t forget to celebrate the small victories, too. Hard work and patience are key to making positive changes happen in your life or in your workplace.
