New Year's Resolution Success

New Year's Resolution Success

There’s nothing like the feeling of a brand new year. It brings with it a distinct sense of newness and possibility, the kind that prompts us to start making lists. Lists of habits we want to break and ones we want to acquire. Lists of goals and dreams we know are within our reach in 2013. Many of us will make these lists and resolve to do big things in the year to come, but according to the Journal of Clinical Psychology, only 8% of us will succeed in achieving these resolutions.

Kind of a bummer, right?

Not to worry, you have a stacked deck. You have access to a community of TaskRabbits ready to help you reach your goals in 2013. From planning your dream vacation to coaching you in a new language — they’re standing by to help you succeed. Look at how they can help with eight of the most common New Year’s resolutions:

Eating Better
People have long hired TaskRabbits to help them commit to healthier eating — it’s just like having a personal chef (but way cheaper). Health-savvy TaskRabbits can design a nutritious menu, shop for all the ingredients, then whip up a week’s worth of meals in advance. All you have to do is eat.

Getting Fit
It probably won’t surprise you that getting in shape is one of the most popular resolutions each year. Whether you’re looking to lose twenty pounds, train for a marathon, or finally master that tennis serve, fit and friendly TaskRabbits can help coach you. Imagine how easy it’ll be for you to succeed with a professional workout buddy — regular motivation and accountability makes a huge difference.

Getting Organized
Whether you’re hoping to turn a storage space into a new office, or simply hoping to de-clutter your life, TaskRabbits can help you clean out and organize pantries, closets, garages, attics, spare bedrooms — whatever. They’ll wrangle your chaos into neat and tidy spaces — and even haul the excess stuff away to your local Goodwill.

Taking a Dream Vacation
If you’ve got a big trip on your radar for 2013, you probably want to do it right. TaskRabbits can help research destinations, hotel, and airfare. They can build itineraries of local activities and must-try food, and let you know if special shots or visas are required. It’s like having a personal travel agent.

Starting a Blog
If your resolution involves finally putting up a personal website and dazzling the world with your sparkling wit, you might need a little help getting things set up. TaskRabbits can do everything from customizing your WordPress site to building your social networking strategy — so you can focus on writing those blog posts.

Learning Something New
Wanna learn French? Take up yoga? Knit a scarf? Play the guitar? Now’s the time to start. We’ve got loads of talented TaskRabbits ready to give you one-on-one lessons.

Spending More Time With Family and Friends
This popular resolution is probably our favorite. Every Task you post frees up more time for you to spend with the people who are most important to you. So outsource your grocery shopping, laundry, and house chores and spend all those hours doing the things that’ll make you look back this time next year and say, “Wow, 2013 was awesome.”
