“A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.”
Did you make any New Year’s resolutions this year? Are you sticking to them? If you’re still on track, you’re ahead of many of us. Research shows that more than 35 percent of resolution makers have abandoned their resolve by the end of January. The most popular day for raising a white flag on good intentions is January 10: that’s only 10 days of willpower!
Nonetheless, one study found that 23 percent of our resolutions last through the year. What makes that 23 percent stick, while others wilt like the forgotten vegetables of our healthier eating resolution?
Having the right tools can make the difference. Fortunately, XAP has the tools to help you – and your students and clients – make 2012 a successful year.
Reports say that getting in shape is the top resolution for 2012. We can’t introduce you to a personal trainer or a yoga instructor, but we can help you reduce stress. Find out how one school district used our products to overcome some stressful challenges and helped their students meet their own goals.
Not surprisingly, financial fitness is the second most popular resolution for 2012. Our financial aid planning tools can help anyone get their money management on track. Students can learn about financial aid, find scholarships and calculate their expenses to avoid surprises in 2012.
But we all know that financial planning doesn’t stop after graduation! Learning more about financial literacy can help anyone get their money in order this year.
Having a clear plan will help you succeed with any resolution: our planning tools can help you make concrete, manageable plans for 2012 and beyond, whether you want to help a student make a plan for getting into college, or create a plan to have a relaxing, fun and productive year.
