Smart Goals For The New Year!

Posted on: January 3rd, 2013 by Jeff Ritter No Comments


A new year has arrived and it’s time to create intentions for daily improvements that will inspire successful life changes.

Now that the ball has dropped, take the time to create some simple intentions to kick off the new year on the right foot. Keep in mind, it’s the little things that produce the biggest results. Start with small changes that are easy to impliment and, before you know it, you’ll be accomplishing everything on your list with ease.

Make sure you get specific. Focusing on vague goals, such as “I want to lose weight” are sure to fail. Start with a clear intention and outline how you’re going to impliment your new purpose daily. Choose intentions that are doable and enjoyable, because that’s what will in the end make them sustainable.

Follow the 3 CNK tips below for intention setting success!
