We’ve read one of Gretchen Rubin’s books for our book group:
To get started on the new year, she has nine suggestions for helping you to make some resolutions for work!
“The new year is here, and for many of us, that means new year’s resolutions. And many of us make resolutions related to our work lives. ..
For instance, some common work-related resolutions include “I want to broaden my horizons,” “I want to do a better job with record-keeping,” “I want to network,” “I want to find a mentor,” and “I want to expand my skills.”
One key to consistent progress is to make a behavior into a habit. Habits are freeing and energizing, because they save us from the difficult, draining business of making decisions and exercising our self-control.
Habits matter, because research shows that about 40% of everyday life is shaped by habits. If we have habits that work for us, we’re far more likely to be happier, healthier, and more productive.”
