Creating a list can be a great way to visualize what it’s going to take to make your dreams come true. From making lists that show more lofty goals to detailed to-do lists that help you get through your daily tasks. Check out more about our resolution-keeping techniques here.
2. Get Inspired

Whether you’re finding a quote that speaks to you or setting an intention for everyday, it’s important to make sure you’re constantly feeling inspired. That will definitely keep you motivated and have you way less likely to fall into an unproductive rut.
3. Create A Space For Yourself
Whether you’re making sure your desk is clutter free or creating an oasis for yourself on the couch — giving yourself some space to breathe, be creative and produce work is key for getting to werk.
4. Celebrate The Small Accomplishments
Realistically, it’s going to take some time for you to meet your ultimate goals, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t stop to celebrate the little moments along the way. These milestones are worth celebrating because without them, you’d never reach the final destination. And sometimes it’s more about the journey anyway. Be kind to yourself and treat yo’ self for all the hard work you’ve done every now and again.
5. Take Care Of You
If you’re going to be celebrating the small accomplishments, you might as well fit a little self-care in there, too. Being kind to your body and inner self will go a long way to helping you feel good about where you’re at, but also pushing you to improve. So, after you’ve checked an item off of that to-do list, make sure you’re acknowledging yourself and then light a candle and have some coffee, put on a face mask or go get a manicure. Do something to make yourself feel special. You deserve it, after all!
