S - Keep your New Year's resolutions Specific. Be clear about what, where, why and when you want to achieve your New Year's resolution.
M - Your resolutions should be Measurable. If you want to lose weight, don’t just make it your goal to have lower numbers on the scale, but set a measurable goal of how much weight you want to lose in what period of time.
A - Make your New Year's Resolutions Attainable. It's always good to set ambitious goals. But make sure that they can be broken up in achievable steps along the way. Otherwise your resolutions might just seem too big to handle from the beginning.
R - Keep the resolutions for this year Realistic. Visiting Mars will probably not happen for you in the next year, but visiting three cities in your home country is definitely on the map!
T - It’s always a good idea to make your resolutions Timely and set time limits for yourself. "I want to be a professional guitar player this year" is harder to keep than "By February, I want to know at least the basic chords"!
