Start immediately. Leap into your new habit right away, when the clock strikes midnight, and wherever possible, implement your new goals as soon as you can during the day.
Make every effort to find a friend or group to work with in keeping your resolution. The likelihood of making it work will be much higher than doing it in isolation.
Always remember that you're going to face obstacles, and put in place tactics for handling them. Don't let bumps in the road be show stoppers.
Use positive reinforcement to stay on track and energized while moving forward. Celebrate when you achieve meaningful breakthroughs.
Review your resolutions each morning and guage yourself to see where you are. If need be due to circumstances , revise them, but keep moving forward.
Cultivate the habit of action, of getting off the couch, of finishing tasks immediately. This attitude alone can revolutionize your life.
