Plan on Keeping Your New Year's Resolutions?

Posted:

ARDMORE, OK--  Today in Ardmore many people dropped into a coffee shop for a good cup of coffee and a spot to finish working on their goals for 2013.

We were on resolution and goal patrol to see how people were feeling about setting goals and resolutions for 2013

"I feel like it's harder to accomplish them if you have too much going on. In the past, I've done things like run a couple times a week, and do different things to improve my health, but I think it's important to find something to make bench marks and that will help me be successful" says goal-setter Emily Lang.

Emily Lang says she's focused on setting goals that will help her get back to doing things that she loves.

"I'm a student, so ideally I would like to read one nonacademic book every month, reading is something that I really love, it would be nice if I could make time to get back into that" says Lang.

Aspiring writer Reed Arnold says this year his plan is to do a lot of writing and complete a few creative projects, there are also things he must put aside such as time in his schedule and things that take up his free time.  

Life coaches and motivational speakers all around are saying it's good to have a plan, it's even better to stick to it.

KTEN contacted North Carolina based coach Denice Newton. Newton says you should have a plan, just don't bite off more than what you can chew. Here are some of Newton's tips to help you accomplish great things in 2013:

1. Set realistic goals to accomplish.
