Travel Nurses: Turn Your New Year’s Resolutions Into Reality

Share

Each and every year as December draws to a close, many of us usually make some sort of New Year’s resolution. It’s pretty easy to spout out the things you’d like to see change in your life, but much more difficult to actually attain them. Year after year we tell ourselves we’re going to do this or stop doing that and after many unsuccessful tries, we may just stop making any sort of resolution all together. Why is that? Because most of the time we never keep to our promises, our resolutions because we have no plan.

How to make new year's resolutions and stick to them.

Make promises to yourself that you can keep.

If you are really serious about a resolution this year, you can succeed with just a little help and a planned approach. A lot of the time our resolutions are pretty lofty and great in theory, but can be difficult because there usually are changes that must be made in order to achieve what we’ve identified as our goals and personal promises. To ensure that you can attain your goals you must be reasonable and realistic. If your plans involve few, smaller changes rather than large life altering ones you’ll be more likely to follow through because you won’t feel defeated by what may seem to be hopeless.

Besides a plan, you could also enlist a “support system” of friends and family to help you stay on task. For instance, say a group of traveling nurses you’ve worked with wants to improve their physical health and well being. You can all combine your goals and help one another by taking baby steps together and celebrating every small goal that ultimately leads to the bigger picture. By doing so, you will help everyone stay motivated and before you know it you’ll be looking back at 2011 and say, “take that New Year!”

About the Author:

Patrick Fuerstenau here. Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I've been involved with Marketing and Advertising for over a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she's ever had... So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. So here I am at Medical Solutions and am going on my 3rd year as a Marketing Specialist for a great travel nursing company. This by far has been a major blessing in my life. I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time... As long as they'll have me. Now that we've got the career timeline out of the way... Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I've been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn't at least kick the ball around, I don't know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts... Music, Visual arts, Film, Design... pretty much anything and everything arty. I'm happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager! And I love writing about travel nursing.
