I believe in making New Year’s Resolutions.
Have I ever looked back at the end of the year and said I had completed one successfully? Not yet, but this could be the year. Many people scoff at resolution makers, but guess what? People who make resolutions are far more likely to at least make progress in the right direction than those who don’t. There is some strategy to achieving your resolutions.
One is to be realistic. It’s not realistic to think you’re going to shed the 20 pounds you’ve added over the past 10 years in just two months. It’s also not realistic to think that you are never going to purchase anything that is not an absolute necessity when you are trying to save money. Budgets, like diets, are very hard to stick to if they are too strict.
