Tips on Keeping Your Work Resolutions

Tips on Keeping Your Work Resolutions
Are you sticking to your goals for 2016?  As we begin the third month of the new year, let’s keep in mind some actionable tips that can help us achieve our work resolutions. It only takes 21 days to form a habit, so there’s plenty of time to create and maintain good habits in your professional life this year.  

  1. Work-Life Balance
    To be the best planner you can be, you need to balance your work and personal life. Stick with structured work hours and learn to unplug. It can be a challenge to step away from work, but taking some R & R will help you in the long run. Don’t be afraid to take a vacation—it gives you a chance to recharge and reassess your goals.   
  2. Engage in Networking
    You might dread those after-work shindigs, but they can be very helpful. You get the chance to learn new tricks of the trade and potentially meet your next client, opening doors for a more prosperous year (and of course, free food!). There are always opportunities to attend a networking or leadership event. MPI New York Chapter is a great group that offers loads of educational and networking activities.
  3. Embrace New Technology
    Don’t be afraid of technology. There are plenty of webinars and blogs with tips and tutorials to help you keep up with new technology and trends. Here is one blog post to check out: Handheld Planner, a great tip courtesy of one of my colleagues.

Researchers say around 40 percent of Americans who make resolutions end up keeping them for at least six months. Set guidelines to help you prioritize and prepare for the inevitable curveballs that will come your way so that you stay on track, and try out these tips to support you as you work toward your goals. I hope you’re able to stick with it in 2016!
