How to Keep Up with New Year's Resolutions (+ Video!!!)

So one of the reasons why I broke up my resolutions (but really goals) into the different months was that I wanted to make sure that I stuck with them! I also get bored super, super easily so I like to change it up from time to time. It's much easier– at least I think– to implement things slowly and then consistently have something new to look forward to!

Even though I broke it up by months, I still wanted to do something so I wouldn't forget about what I was supposed to be focusing on on a day-to-day basis.

I came up with a solution that's based on something I did for a class at Georgetown!!! Check out the video for an explanation of what the system is, why I think it will work, and how you can do it for yourself!




Below are copies of what I had printed. You can right click + open in new tab/window to see up close what each say!





After I've printed on card stock.


During the slicing and dicing– definitely my favorite part!!!


Ready for lamination!!!


To make sure I had equal edges, I used the width of the scissor blade as a guide!

How will you keep up with your resolutions/goals throughout the year?

And a surprise blooper!!! That horn was going off for legitimately 15 minutes. There is a traffic light at the end of my block (hello, it's NYC). Delivery trucks ALWAYS block it so the whole street will be lined with cars and everyone gets super angry. Personally, I find it hilarious (mostly because I can just walk right on by the line of cars)... except for when I am trying to film and they keep honking!

  16. Yay, a video! Wow, you are super organized. I could stand to be more like that... My goals right now are long term, but they are things I need reminded of. Thinking of making a single card instead of monthly. Thanks for the idea. Also, love your wallet.

  17. This is a fabulous idea! I've also see this done in a 4x6 size and then put in a photo frame on someone's desk. Great way to keep track of your goals!
