How Communication Strategies Make New Year Resolutions Stick!

We all know the trends. We wipe the slate clean for the New Year on a path to aim high and do better. January is the highest enrollment month for fitness clubs and the purchase of equipment for home use. Then by March the equipment has cob webs.

I have some good news! There are ways to communicate that will enhance the probability of your success adhering to those New Year Resolutions.

Consider these:

1. Make your resolutions “public.” Tell your spouse, friends, co-workers and family. Research reveals that we feel a social pressure to follow through when we share resolutions.

2. Make sure you don’t aim to high or to low. If you set the bar low, the accomplishment will have little meaning and significance.  For example, if you can already walk a mile, increasing it to two miles is not that great. If you set the bar to high, I can walk a mile now and by March I will do a marathon is probably impossible and will result in disappointment. Either setting resolutions to high or low can ding the ole self-esteem.

3. Another technique I implemented with my family is a ritual of posting the resolutions on our kitchen bulletin board. In full view of all who visited our home.

What People are saying about Audrey

I recently purchased your "How to deal with difficult people" CD. Prior to purchasing your CD I purchased 3 other highly popular audio products on the same topic.
But I must say that I found your content much more succinct, and to the point.  Each sentence hit the bulls-eye every time. I work as a Business Analyst for software development for State agency. We have in our IT team a woman who fits the description of the "Autocratic Dictator" point-by-point. There are a number of others in our IT dept who have asked to listen to the CD and have also been highly impressed with it.
