We hope you had a wonderful break and enjoyed seeing your friends and family this holiday season! We’re excited to have you back and to get ready for this upcoming semester. We have a ton of exciting events planned for you this month, and we hope you’re as excited as we are. Don’t forget — the deadline to renew your lease and save your space is quickly approaching, so right now is the best time to renew and lock in your spot for next year.

 

Special Highlight

  1. Don’t forget that rent is always due in full on the first of the month. Late fees start on the fourth.
  2. If you’re still not signed up for simple bills for electricity, you’ll be billed your portion with an accompanying late fee.
  3. Please report any vandalism you see on the property to management immediately!
  4. Please keep your heaters on at least 55 degrees on colder days/nights to prevent pipe damage in your unit while keeping energy costs low.

Turning Resolutions into Reality

Did you know that only 8% of people are successful in keeping their New Year’s resolutions? While that may sound discouraging, there are some very practical ways to beat the odds and see success this year! Whether you make New Year’s resolutions or are one of the 38% of Americans who absolutely never makes them, anyone will benefit from a commitment to continuous improvement. Here are some tips for a successful 2016 — and beyond:

Define your “why”: Whether your goal is to improve your GPA or get in better shape, create a “why” statement for any goal you have. Achieving goals can be challenging, so make sure you stay motivated by keeping the purpose in mind!

Write it down: According to numerous studies, the simple act of writing down your goals increases your likelihood of success significantly. When you write down your goals, make them specific and measurable, and put your goals somewhere you will see them.

Tell a friend: Another factor shown to increase your likelihood of success is telling a friend about your goals. You increase success even more when you share progress reports with them.

Take action: Always ask the simple and powerful question, “Is what I am doing getting me closer to where I want to be?” If the answer is yes, keep going! If no, try to make progress by taking even a small step in the right direction.

Enjoy the journey: Remember that much of the benefit of intentional improvement comes in the process, so take time to reflect, assess, and enjoy the journey!
