Starting out 2011, many of us would like this year to be different. We would like to eat better, exercise more, spend more time with our families, have better relationships, or whatever else might be important. In the beginning, our hopes and dreams are strong and might bring about short-lived successes but the problem is that these successes often do not last long. Many individuals find it easier to slip back into old routines because that is what we are used to and it alleviates the stress of trying a new behaviour.To Tell or Not To Tell
There are two schools of thoughts when it comes to setting personal and business goals. The first say you should tell people so it puts you on the spot. That by telling others what you plan to do will make you do it because you don’t want to look like a loser or a failure in their eyes. It’s like holding a hammer over your head so if you don’t do what you tell others you are going to do you will be embarrassed and or lose face. The second group says you should keep the plans to yourself and those that would support you. The reason you don’t tell anyone is because family and friends, although they have your wellbeing in mind will handicap your goals with their opinions and advice; sometimes they may even make fun of you trying to be humorous. Which method you choose is up to you, but will actually depend on your character. If you are the type that is easily swayed by others then you’ll want to keep your goals and plans to yourself and those that you know will support you.
