Taking Notes

It’s New Year’s Eve and tonight like most people I will be celebrating the arrival of another year, I will also making plans for the next 12 months and beyond.

Like most of us, I set myself new year resolutions and like most of us, they tend to get broken.  These resolutions are often rather generic,  get fit: eat less or give up something or other etc…

Resolutions are not plans, there are whims or desires, some will be very practical and others more aspirations, however to be plans they need to be S.M.A.R.T.

S pecific

M easurable

A ttainable

R elevent

T ime Limited


In a nutshell, you need to have a firm plan with targets, objectives and measurables. If you have these, it is must easier to achieve the original plan and remember,  the only thing that will prevent you from achieving them is yourself.

Don’t make resolutions, make SMART plans.
