The new year is almost upon us-- so is the new decade, try not to shudder at that thought-- and with every new year comes planning out new year's resolutions. Those resolutions being achieved, however, is a different story. According to U.S. News, about 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by the second week of February.
This can be partially blamed by setting lofty goals as your resolutions, which can quickly become overwhelming and feel impossible to achieve. You shouldn’t lose hope and abandon your goals; consider changing your perspective about your resolutions instead.
Instead of planning to become a supermodel or Fortune 500 entrepreneur, why not consider learning something new, picking up a new hobby, or finding a new career path? Thankfully for you, Continuing Education and Workforce Training can help you on your (more easily attainable) journey.
