5 Tips to Keep Your New Year's Resolutions with BOOX
Have you given up your New Year's resolutions yet? Congrats if you haven't, as 23% of people will quit by the end of the first week, and 43% are expected to back down by February, according to statistics. Here we will introduce some simple steps to help you stick to your resolutions and how to implement them to boost your productivity with BOOX.
#1 – Write Down Your Objectives
The built-in Notes app is a useful tool to organize all your objectives at a glance. Try to use the SMART criteria, one of the most common ways for objective management and frequently used for goal setting, which stands for specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. For example, "by the end of February, I will read 4 books about history and social science as bedtime reading" is a better described objective than just "read 4 books this month".
#2 – Plan Your Actions
The next process is to make a detailed plan of how you can achieve your goals step by step. Finding a suitable template would be a good way to list all your options and weigh out the pros and cons of each option. In the Notes app, there are plenty of built-in templates and ones from the cloud. Of course, your creativity is preferred to design its layout on your own and import it as a customized template.

#3 – Keep Track of the (Good and Bad) Results
As you accomplish every stage of your objective, you need to record your progress, whether it has met your expectation. Keep up with the efforts if it turns out well, and analyze the obstacles if it does not. A PDF planner in NeoReader would be a perfect choice because of its powerful functionality to let you scribble on the document directly.
#4 – Share Your Success
Don't forget to share your excitement on social media as it will gain you a sense of accomplishment. Both the NeoReader and the Notes app offer an intuitive way to share your written notes. For those who are fond of ebooks, the sentences or paragraphs that you find inspire you the most can be easily highlighted or underlined.

#5 – Review What You Have (and Have Not) Achieved
It is equally essential to look back to the past as to look forward to the future. As you have recorded every detail of your plan and the whole process on your BOOX device, summarize the achievements you have made and what you can improve in this process. Your experience will be the most valuable asset to yourself.
