A New Year’s Plan

6 Jan

This is my first blog post of the new year.

Happy 2010 everyone. Hope all of you had a blast and wonderful holiday. As for me I had a long holiday. Actually I pretty much got the same number of day offs like everybody else. But I had been a lazy girl throughout the holiday.

One day I took some time to write out some new year resolution.  Well I admitted some of them are so familiar. Since I have been slacking off quite a bit in Q4 of 2009. I am going to begin with extra effort and go extra miles to reach my goals. May the force be with me the whole year. I mean really talking about “all 4 quarters” of the whole year.

A little fun fact from Quirkology showing that while 52% of participants in a resolution study were confident of success with their goals, only 12% actually achieved their goals. Men achieved their goal 22% more often when they engaged in goal setting, a system where small measurable goals are used (lose a pound a week, instead of saying “lose weight”), while women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.

I had mine written down on a piece of paper and placed it somewhere very prominent on my desk. This will work this time.
