A New Year’s resolution is a promise that you make to yourself to start doing something good or stop doing something bad on the first day of the year. Regardless of what resolution you commit to, the goal is to improve life in the coming year.
Here are some New Year’s resolutions our team made at PCI.
1 – Family First
Call each family member once per week to say hi and catch up. (Colin Stewart )
2 – Get Inspired
When I get up each morning, I will read something positive to begin the day before I look at my phone (for social media, news, mail, texts, etc.). (Beth Dembitz)
3 – Work Smart
Work smart, find time to play and enjoy life; one day at a time. (Rellen Hayes)
4 – Focus on Learning
My New Year’s resolution is to focus more on learning. My main goal is to learn Spanish in 2017. (Michael Blunck)
5 – Give More
When I feel like I have nothing else to give, I want to give more.
This is really in terms of work and home. By the end of the day, I am beat. But it is the extra 10 minutes, the extra email, the extra whatever that will get me to where I want to be at the end of 2017. So regardless of how I feel or how the day went, give a bit more before it is over. (Cassie Cox)
6 – Work Life Balance
I’m very excited for all of the greatness this year!! A New Year’s resolutions of mine is to balance work and home, ultimately become a stronger mother for Hollden. And with that also goes my recommitment to time management so that I can spend more time in the proactive zone instead of being reactive. (Margaret Cogdill)
7 – Look Good and Feel Great
My numero uno New Year’s resolution is to get back down to my Wedding Day’s weight from October 7th, 1995. I have scheduled my physical with my Physician on Saturday the 7th. We are going to discuss a diet and workout regimen that will fit my schedule and will get the most promising results. I am very determined. I will succeed. FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION!!! (Michael Jelinek)
8 – Be Innovative
Identify and capitalize on innovative ways to deliver value to our clients that are consistent with PCI’s purpose of strengthening our nation’s universities, service organizations and high schools. (Drew Clancy)
According to Forbes, when you share your goals with others, you increase your chances of achieve them:
“Share your goals with friends and family. Social support is critical. Yes, it takes some personal courage and vulnerability to share something that you might actually fail at, but to dramatically increase your odds of success you’ll want support from those around you. One of the most effective things you can do is to get an “accountability partner”, someone who checks in with you daily or weekly. It’s easy to break a promise to yourself, but far harder to admit it to a friend.” – Forbes
