After several blogs about setting and keeping your New Year’s Resolution, I hope that you are on the path toward success. The last piece of the puzzle has to do with the power of writing. Writing sets intentionality, or that you have the intention to do something, and so you are more likely to do it. Setting a goal becomes more real simply by writing it down on something tangible, and ideally easily within your sight. This can be on a piece of paper, a document on your computer, or a note in your cell phone. As I have written about previously, make sure you have a timeline for when you wish to reach your goal, and add that to your written goal. I’ll tell you in this blog posting some ways to use writing to help you successful achieve your New Year’s Resolution (even though it is March), as well as other goals you may have.
There are many different ways to track your progress. Writing a journal is a great way to reflect on your work. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so this is about the journey of self-transformation that you are considering and writing about. How do you think the process is going? Are you enjoying it? How do you plan to continue this progress? Furthermore, journaling gives you the ability to look back in time and see how far you’ve come. Again, think about the small milestones you have made, and not about how far you have to go. You will be amazed how quickly changes will come. Enjoy the experience, and have that reflected in your writing. A positive state of mind will help you make positive progress.
