How to keep your New Year’s Resolutions in 2018.

Resolutions are a great way to start your new year with a positive outlook.  For many though, it can be depressing when they fail to complete those resolutions.  As mentioned in our “Legal New Year’s Resolution” feature, a mere 8% of those who make resolutions keep them.  So, how do you increase your chances of keeping your legal resolutions?

  1. Set priorities – What is your most important resolution (getting your will created or updated) and focus your energy there first. If you succeed at that, everything else is just a bonus.
  2. Forgive yourself– Did you hope to consolidate more of your debt? Don’t let that stop you from finishing. Even if it takes longer than expected, follow any advice given from your attorney and keep going!
  3. Make manageable goals – Try not to assume everything will be fixed in your first consultation with your attorney. Know that it may be a long process, but your attorney will continue to work with you until everything is settled.

Here’s to making 2018 a success!
