I often have every intention of sincerely following my New Year's Resolutions only to have broken every one of them by January 14th! Anyone else have the same experience? While we may have the very best intentions when we set goals, we can often pluck them out of thin air, they can be horribly vague, and they don’t really inspire us in any way. The goal of ‘losing weight’ is admirable but what does it actually mean? Do you want to shift belly fat, tone up, get fit for the summer, or train for a marathon? By being more specific and looking to the future with our goal in mind, we have more chance of sticking to it. Take a look at these three simple ways you can maximize your chances of goal success.

If there is one thing that anyone working in the modern world can agree on, it’s the need to develop a good relationship with your boss. Your boss, after all, has a critical role to play in your career; they will play a decisive role on your opportunity to advance further in the company, or - if you decide to move on - they will usually be the most obvious choice for a reference. As a result, all workers have to carefully nurture their relationship with their boss, doing what they can to stand out, make a good impression, and be considered a vital part of the team.
Unfortunately, there is one scenario in particular that seems to make all of those things impossible: the times when you realize that your boss has made a mistake. There’s no denying that the realization your boss has done something wrong creates a sinking feeling. Even the most even-tempered of people dislike feeling rebuked, and most employees will fear the repercussions of having to do so when, as we’ve mentioned, the person who has made the error has such a crucial role to play in their future prospects. We give your our tips to getting through this sticky situation.
