How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

Posted January 4, 2013, by Sprott Shaw College. Tags: ,


It’s the beginning of a new year and that means men and woman everywhere are pledging to quit smoking, lose weight, or go back to school. Here are some tips for going back to school that we’ve compiled based on the Forbes article entitled “How to Make 2013 Your Best Year Ever“:

– Just because you know you should go back to school, think about whether you really want to go back to school. Forbes says if have a strong personal desire to go back to school “you’re far more likely to do it”.

– If you have proclaimed that you are going back to school, you need to “build a path to achieving [your] goal”. The first step in going back to school is speaking with a Career Advisor who can go over our programs, discuss financial options and help you plan your work-life balance.

– Lastly, the Forbes article warns the biggest impediment to you success is yourself. That voice inside your head may try to talk your out of the plan. You need to say to yourself “I’d love to have 2013 be my best year yet – and I’m going to do everything in my power to make it so.”

– One more thing to keep in mind from an educational perspective is that graduating from Sprott Shaw is only half the battle. Be prepared to work hard handing out resumes, preparing for interviews, sending out thank you notes and making follow up calls as you work to get the job of your dreams. Our Global Career Center will be there assisting you all the way.
