On the night of December 31st every year, many people come with a list of "I will do this" and "I won't do that." This list of do's, don't s, goals, and aspirations for the upcoming year is what we refer to as a New Year resolution. Some resolutions would be to lose weight, and others might be to read more books or quit chocolates. However, before the end of February, so many peoples' New Year resolution fails. Some even start failing in the 2nd week of January. Why do people with so much good intentions fail so quickly? Check out some reasons below:

They are not specific

There is a thin line between failure and success, so when making a goal, it's mandatory that the goal is specific. To resolve to "read books" is not specific and it sets you up to fail from day one. Be more specific with your goals. For example, setting a goal of reading four novels every month is more specific. With a particular purpose, you can measure your success.

They have no plan

Sadly, many people do not plan how they will reach their New Year's resolution. A resolution without a plan is just a mere dream. Take action and find a step by step guide to help you reach your goal at ease. In regards to reading four novels every month, a good plan might be to tell yourself you are going to reading one book every week.

They are not true to themselves 

Imagine venturing into business on day one and making a resolution of making a million dollar profit before the second quarter of the year. That is a very high mountain to climb, and it would stress you out quickly. Dreaming big is good, but it is essential to make your goal realistic so there won't be any feeling of underachievement. 

They keep it a secret 

Many people who set New Year resolutions hold it within themselves, out of fear of failure or embarrassment. Rather than making it a mystery, tell your friends and family about it. By doing so, you will develop a sense of accountability that will push you towards reaching your goals.

They have no reward

It is essential to reward yourself when you reach some certain point with your resolution. When you reward yourself, you motivate yourself and give yourself something to look forward to. If you resolve to lose weight, don't reward yourself with food but rather with a spa, a new wristwatch or clothes.Follow these mindful tips, and you’ll be sure to succeed at keeping your next resolution.

You may have seen them, a circle with all the colors of the rainbow and then some. This is what is called a color wheel. You may think what in the world would I need one of those for? Yes, interior designers and artists use them as a tool to make design decisions. The color wheel is also helpful for many other individuals in everyday living situations. Quilters and tailors often use the theory of the color wheel. The color wheel is also handy to those in marketing or anyone putting together presentations.

The Basics

You will find the color wheel has 12 different colors to make a full spectrum. When you break the wheel down, you see three categories: primary, secondary, and tertiary. The primary color category is made up of red, blue, and yellow. Like the most basic of boxes of crayons. All other colors are created out of the primary colors. For example, secondary colors come when you mix any two primary colors. Orange, green, and violet are secondary colors. 

Finally, tertiary colors appear when you combine one primary color with a secondary from one side or another of that primary color on the color wheel. Think of the giant box of crayons: yellow-orange, red-orange, red-violet, blue-violet, blue-green, and yellow-green are tertiary colors. 

Color wheel usage

When using the color wheel, it helps to know what different color combinations there are and how they can be used. There are multiple ways to experiment with how the colors combine with the help of the color wheel. You can have complimentary colors which are located directly across the circle from each other. They are common color patterns you will see such as red and green during the holiday season. This combination is a very strong visual when you see them together. A calming, subtle color combination that you can use is the monochromatic combination. Mono meaning one makes this a mix of different shades of a single color. 

Similar to monochromatic is analogous, meaning the colors are similar or corresponding and you can find these colors next to each other on the wheel. This combination is perhaps the easiest to design with. When you lay a triangle over the wheel, each point will rest on a color that when used together is called a triadic color combination. This combination is one of the most common you can use when designing almost anything.

Next time you drive down your local street take note of the color wheel combinations on the houses, commercial buildings, and signage. Use of complementary color combinations is especially crucial in addressing curb appeal. House and trim colors that clash can be an instant turn off to passersby. If you need help deciphering which colors most accentuate your home's architectural details, seek a design specialist and turn your home into the most exciting house on the street.
