As the end of January approaches, many of us are probably reflecting on the New Years Resolutions that we made. If you're like 29% of the population, you've already given up on your resolution. And, unfortunately, before long, you'll probably join 92% of people who don't keep their resolutions by the end of the year.
We all know how it goes. We tell ourselves we're going to eat healthy, lose weight. So we go on a crash diet, resolve to never eat unhealthy again. But our bodies can't handle that drastic change, and eventually we fall off of the wagon. This doesn't just happen with weight loss resolutions, but all kinds. To be more patient, more grateful, etc.
At DeMarco Films, we're no different than all of you that have resolved to better ourselves in this coming year. But the ticket to success is all in how you approach it. Studies show that setting small, realistic goals is key to keeping ourselves from getting discouraged. We have some really big plans for our company and all of our wonderful clients this coming year. Our first goal for the year is to get everyone on our team cross-trained for all areas of production. With everyone able to do everything, we'll be able to take on more productions to better serve all of you! To make this a more realistic goal, we're breaking this down even further by focusing on one area of production at a time.
It is normal for most freelance work to slow down during the holiday season and not pick up until February and March. Instead of allowing ourselves to get lazy, we're taking advantage of this downtime and focusing on our first goal, cross training, and taking each area of production one week at a time. Always finding things to improve. Together, we can all accomplish our goals.
Here's to abolishing New Years Resolutions, and instead making promises to ourselves to improve one goal, one day at a time!
