Happy 2020 from the VTANG Airman and Family Readiness Office! New Year’s is the only holiday that celebrates the passage of time. We have thoughts of self-improvement and the ritual of making resolutions, which offer the first of many important tools for remaking ourselves! New Year’s Resolution Week is observed during the first week of each New Year. The purpose is to encourage you to make firm resolutions, set challenging goals, and develop action plans for your goals that will enable
you to have the best year of your life. Focus on realistic goals with measurable results. Create bite-sized jobs for yourself that you’ll be able to accomplish. If your goal is too big, you’ll feel defeated before you even get started. A few tips to help you reach your goals: Avoid perfectionist thinking, view setbacks as lessons for growth and make goals that mean a lot to you. Goal setting can help with time management, stress management and decision making. One important goal is financial management. VTNG has a Personal Financial Counselor, Megan Sather, who is available to assist you with the goal of financial planning, budgeting and debt management. Take advantage of her FREE services which includes professional, individualized financial planning including assistance with money management, credit and debt, and establishing and building savings plans. Susan can be reached at (802) 318-2507.
