On the night of December 31st every year, many people come with a list of "I will do this" and "I won't do that." This list of do's, don't s, goals, and aspirations for the upcoming year is what we refer to as a New Year resolution. Some resolutions would be to lose weight, and others might be to read more books or quit chocolates. However, before the end of February, so many peoples' New Year resolution fails. Some even start failing in the 2nd week of January. Why do people with so much good intentions fail so quickly? Check out some reasons below:

They are not specific

There is a thin line between failure and success, so when making a goal, it's mandatory that the goal is specific. To resolve to "read books" is not specific and it sets you up to fail from day one. Be more specific with your goals. For example, setting a goal of reading four novels every month is more specific. With a particular purpose, you can measure your success.

They have no plan

Sadly, many people do not plan how they will reach their New Year's resolution. A resolution without a plan is just a mere dream. Take action and find a step by step guide to help you reach your goal at ease. In regards to reading four novels every month, a good plan might be to tell yourself you are going to reading one book every week.

They are not true to themselves 

Imagine venturing into business on day one and making a resolution of making a million dollar profit before the second quarter of the year. That is a very high mountain to climb, and it would stress you out quickly. Dreaming big is good, but it is essential to make your goal realistic so there won't be any feeling of underachievement. 

They keep it a secret 

Many people who set New Year resolutions hold it within themselves, out of fear of failure or embarrassment. Rather than making it a mystery, tell your friends and family about it. By doing so, you will develop a sense of accountability that will push you towards reaching your goals.

They have no reward

It is essential to reward yourself when you reach some certain point with your resolution. When you reward yourself, you motivate yourself and give yourself something to look forward to. If you resolve to lose weight, don't reward yourself with food but rather with a spa, a new wristwatch or clothes.Follow these mindful tips, and you’ll be sure to succeed at keeping your next resolution.

If your parents owned their home, you probably remember watching them work through weekend honey-do lists fixing things around the house. Now, you’re ready to buy your own home and take on that responsibility. You’ve read all the articles, found the best buyers agent, went through hundreds of properties until you found the perfect one, and now it's yours! Along with that furnace you’ve never checked, faucets that will leak eventually, gutters you’ve never cleaned and trees you’ve never cared for. Taking on the job of maintenance provider at your home can be a big job, but just like the purchase, you can be prepared for this too.

Ventilation and HVAC 

Check your windows and ensure they are sealed around the edges or add weather stripping as needed to prevent air coming in and messing with your perfect temperature. Its also essential to ensure your insulation is correct for your area, including the depth of your loose attic insulation. If your winter weather gets below freezing, remember to remove or winterize your window air conditioners as well.

Your HVAC system needs its own love and care as well. Regularly check and change out your filters, clean dust buildup from ducts and vents and get your furnace periodically inspected by a technician, so you know if there are any more significant issues and whether or not you are due for a professional cleaning.

Water

Water can be the most dangerous element in your home. Small leaks can hide within your walls causing mold, mildew, rot and more serious physical damage. Make sure you know what kinds of pipes run through your house and where you are in danger of springing leaks. Check those areas regularly. If you live in a winter area that gets down to or below freezing, you may need to leave your indoor faucets dripping in winter to protect your pipes from freezing.

Outdoors, keep your gutters clean year-round so that water doesn’t build up around your roof. Make sure all the spouts in your system point away from the home and the foundation. Lastly, ensure that your roof is in good repair to prevent leaks and further damage. 

It's important to know what maintenance the home needs, so if it's you're first, start with a candid conversation with the current owners. If they lived there for a time, they might be willing to share traits of the home with you to help direct your maintenance plan. Talk to your real estate agent about getting the right inspections and professionals to learn about your home.
