New Year's Resolutions Blog Hop

Ah, the dreaded New Year’s Resolutions. I hereby firmly resolve to make 2013 one of the best years ever in recent history. In order to facilitate my dreams into goals aka action plans, here are the things I resolve to do as the curator and manager of Fidose of Reality:

Set a new goal for each month of the year so that I have absolutely completed 12 goals as of December 31, 2013. Rather than overshoot the net and set myself up for failure, I will be resolving to have do-able month by month goals. Statistically about 75% of folks fail at resolutions by the third week in January. Why? Too much pressure, not a solid plan, and too much involved to do.

I will continue to write for and about dogs, help continue to grow BlogPaws and have the best danged social media blogger conference in the history of ever with them (in May btw), then host a Wigglbutt Wedding for charity in June, oh and write a book and do a few other things like well, live, breathe, eat, sleep, read more, play with my dog lots, and genuinely be happy.

How about you? Got plans for 2013? Oh and 13 is my lucky number. Yay me!

  1. What i like about your goals is that you’re giving each one a month…from what i’ve read it takes 30 days to form a habit, so by next year you’ll have formed 12 new positive habits…Yay!

  2. I agree that making a resolution puts on too much pressure. Try not to think of it as a pass or fail. If you break your resolution, simply start over again the next day. No need to wait until next year to try again! For this year, I plan to work on my blogs and pet business more, I plan on teaching my dogs more fun tricks, and I plan on trying to eat better and exercise more. Setting very specific goals is helping me get started but I know in the back of my mind that these goals can be adjusted as needed to be more realistic and for any life changes that may occur.

  3. What wonderful goals for 2013 and I too, LOVE the idea of picking one per month! I made some resolutions too as well as one promise…to TRY and make 2013 the first time I go to BlogPaws conference!

    Happy New Year!

  4. I like the way your setting your resolutions, Carol. My way of doing it is always to be vague… don’t get too specific, because you never know what life will throw at you!

  5. Happy New Year Fidose! I think it’s a furtastic idea to set a goal for each month instead of making resolutions at the beginning of the year. 🙂
