If you find yourself making a New Years resolution, chances are you have a desire to make a change for the better in your life.
I personally make goals/resolutions on a weekly and monthly basis, ranging from establishing/changing certain habits, altering personality patterns, to tackling ridiculous deadlines ... but that's just me.
Here are a few ideas to help make those dreams come true.
BE SPECIFIC -
Vague goals of "I resolve to lose weight", "I resolve to make more money" or "I resolve to spend less time secretly eating donuts under my desk", all have zero chance of making it past the end of January. If you have already made a vague goal, go back and modify it to a specific target. "I resolve to lose weight" should turn into, "I resolve to lose 10 lbs by March 1, 2014", or "I resolve to only eat one donut per month..under my desk" (... I am not here to judge)
BREAK THE GOAL DOWN -
I like your idea of setting weekly and monthly goals. I don't understand why there needs to be only one time in a year when people set goals. Most likely you will forget those goals within few weeks. By setting weekly goals you are constantly monitoring them and making course corrections if you start to miss them.
I wrote an article on setting S.M.A.R.T. goals - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Timely. This helps to maximize the chances of achieving them, You can find the article here - Use S.M.A.R.T. Technique to Achieve your Small Business Goals | Small Biz Viewpoints
