Today is the day – January 1st 2009.  This is the first day of the rest of the year. Whether you have made your resolutions or are still contemplating them, its time to give real consideration to how you will keep them. 

 

Dr. Pamela Dodd, author of  The 25 Best Time Management Tools & Techniques: How to Get More Done Without Driving Yourself Crazy was quoted in a press release on PRWEB today with 3 specific suggestions for increasing your success rate.

They are great suggestions, but experience tells me they do not address the real cause of resolution fatalities.  Dr. Dodd wisely talks about time as the ultimate killer, but does not include the concept of routine.  It’s an existing routine – something we all have – that makes it so difficult to keep any resolution that requires us to alter that routine.

 

Working on time management skills, typically means dealing with the daily to-do list. Resolutions are personal growth or “greater good” goals and you should not attempt to keep them by immediately adding them into the time management of your daily routine.  

 

Once you have carved your resolutions in stone, take the next critical step of figuring out how you will keep them.  Tomorrow’s share will specifically look at what do to with resolutions to greatly increase your chance of success.
