How to Actually Stick to Your New Year's Goals!
Are you looking to make a change in your life in 2023? Whether you're setting a goal, resolution, or intention, the key to success is starting small. According to Atomic Habits, the best way to achieve a lifestyle or identity change is to take the smallest possible step towards your goal. For example, if your goal is to get in shape, start by waking up early and putting on your running shoes. Don't worry about running a mile every day - just focus on building the first part of the habit into your daily routine.
Once your steps are mapped out, the next tip for achieving your goals is to use a checklist. According to The Checklist Manifesto, a list of 5-9 typically mundane tasks can free up your brain to accept more information. If you struggle to get your work done on time, try breaking it down into smaller tasks and putting them on a checklist. This will help you streamline your workflow and focus on your passions and career goals.
In my house, I not only have to get myself ready for work, but also remember everything my 9-year-old needs to do. With the dry erase to-do list, I can write everything down and she can build up internal pride as she forms a more organized and streamlined morning routine. On those groggy mornings when I'm not sure where to start, I can use the board to make a clear morning checklist for myself.
We made our own dry-erase to do list after discovering that our anti-graffiti laminate actually works better than the average dry erase board! We wanted to provide something that can help people manage their days better, teach children how to build habits, and free up brain power for more important tasks. This to-do list board isn’t just easy to erase, but it’s also printed on the same high quality aluminum we use for road signage- since these materials are meant to last on the interstate for fifteen years, then the minimal weathering and wear these will experience are sure to last a lifetime!
Give yourself a strong foundation for success by using a dry erase to-do list to lay the bricks of your daily routine. Start small and build your way up to bigger goals and greater achievements.
