How to Set and Keep New Year’s Resolutions

Do you have any resolutions for 2018? If you do, you should probably be aware that more than a half of all people who make resolutions rarely follow through with them. But you don’t have to fall under this category; our Pittsburgh Limo Service has come up with a few strategies that will guarantee that you stick to your resolutions throughout the year and possibly even surpass your own expectations. Have a look.

Create a Realistic Plan

Reflect on the goals you want to achieve and how you can make them come to fruition. For example, if you plan on losing 40 pounds, a great approach would be to spread out the weight you want to lose over a couple of months rather than starving yourself half to death in January alone. You could decide that you will lose at least 10 pounds every month until you get rid of all 40 pounds. Such a plan is more realistic and achievable, especially because it minimizes the risk of disappointment and demoralization if you are unable to reach your goal immediately. We are not saying that you can’t be ambitious, but you also need to keep a realistic mindset; a realistic mindset will lead you to consistent and unrelenting progress.

Share your Resolutions

We are more likely to stick to our commitments if they are also important to other people and not just ourselves. This is the same principle that will drive a person with kids to work 18 hours a day, every day of the week while another person without kids may be inclined to have a more relaxed work ethic. When you share your resolutions with someone important in your life, you will feel accountable to them as well, your mind will tell you that their well-being is at stake as well, and this will push you to stick it out. Choose to share your resolutions with someone who’s close to your heart, for example, a parent, a best friend, a girlfriend/boyfriend etc. and you will increase your chances for keeping up with this year’s resolutions.

Reward Yourself

Planning to reward yourself for every milestone you hit increases your chances for success. For example, let’s assume one of your resolutions is to read at least one book every week and you have read four, one for each week throughout the month of January, you could reward yourself going out to the movies. Simple rewards will motivate you to stick to the plan because you will subconsciously be looking forward to that well-deserved prize at the end of the tunnel.

Write them Down

Putting your resolutions down in writing serves as a constant reminder of all the goals you have. You could either write down you resolutions in your journal, mobile device, computer, or on sticky notes around your house. Just make sure that you are constantly coming across these little reminders throughout the day to keep your mind in the game.

From our clients:

Regency is my go to company for car service. I have been working with Stacey for a number of years, and I couldn't ask for a better service partner to work with. I even had to call in very early on a Sunday to cancel a reservation, and she was on it, and had it cancelled. I felt bad calling as early as I did, but she was a true professional. I recommend Regency to anyone that I know that needs car service. I'm grateful that you are always on time, and have very courteous, and friendly drivers. Your office staff is always great to work with too.
I use Regency 5 or 6 times a year and have always found them courteous and dependable. I'm very pleased with this service.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
