Before you start setting goals for next year, the first assignment is to do a "Self Appraisal''.

While we move towards the New Year, here are 5 tips to help you choose New Year resolutions that you will find helpful.

Every year people set goals that are rarely followed through beyond a month. Research has shown that only 72.6% of New Year resolutions are maintained through the first week of January. More interesting is the fact that only 44.8% of these goals are still relevant by the 6th month of the year.
With these low statistics, following these tips would be helpful in ensuring that your New Year resolutions are achieved.

1. Make your goals SMART

Your goals should be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound.  For example, don’t say “I want to lose weight”, but “I want to lose 10kg in 4 months”.
In choosing New Year resolutions, ensure the goals meet the SMART criteria.

2. Share your goals with friends and family

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.
