Word of the Week: discipline

At this time of year, I once again have created all sorts of resolutions and goals for the coming year. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat, brimming with hopes regarding your finances, spiritual life, exercise, diet, and more, and hoping that this year will be the year you really stick to your guns and accomplish what you’ve set out to do.  And yet all too often I seem to get derailed, if not by January 15 then definitely by March or so.  So this year I am trying to think more not just about what my goals are, but also how I realistically plan to attain them.  I know this seems obvious enough, and yet it seems to be the step that has led to my failure in the past.  I somehow always just figure I’ll manage to “squeeze in” a few additions to my routine without making conscious decisions about what I’ll set aside or how that will happen.

One of the things that I’m hoping will help me be more disciplined and actually follow through is writing down my goals and checking back with them every week.  I admit it also helps having this blog, which seems to impose a feeling of accountability on me (how can I chat about trying to be a wise mama if I’m not following through on anything?).

Are there any tricks you have for becoming more disciplined and following through with your New Year’s resolutions? What has helped you succeed in the past? Where do you think you’ve gone wrong?
