Are you starting to slip on some of those New Year’s resolutions? It’s that time of year where goals can be forgotten, but keep pushing through! Here at DCC, we think it’s always best to keep innovating and crushing obstacles. So, we came up with a few tips that will definitely help you conquer your goals and lead to success.
Get more sleep
Give yourself the best head start and find time for more sleep. We all know how great it feels to come into work well rested and ready to roll, so start your day on the right foot. If you have trouble sleeping at night, maybe think about things that could keep you awake- like the brightness of your phone, tablet, or computer screen. Step away from technology, budgets, or other stressful work for a few hours before bed. Those few hours will give you time to unwind and set you up for a better night’s sleep.
Turn goals into habits
It’s easy to say I want to accomplish x, y, and z this year. What’s not easy (and why so many people struggle with achieving goals) is establishing habits to get you there. Break your goals down into smaller, more easily achieved steps. If you’re trying to be healthier, take the time to develop healthy habits. Grab an apple instead of a sugary sweet; pick a parking spot further out in the lot. And acknowledge those small steps as success. Great things take time, and so does establishing better habits.
Manage your energy levels
Do you usually have specific times during the day where your energy is low? Or on the flip side, are there times when you feel ready to power through some difficult tasks? Use your energy levels to your advantage. Take on your harder assignments or tasks when your energy is up and your focus is on point. Take on smaller, more manageable task when energy is low.
It’s easy to accomplish more when you are well rested, have established habits to reach goals, and know how to manage your energy’s ebb and flow. These tips can help set you up for success and get you started on the right foot!
