Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018
January 2, 2018 / Sharnie Carter
Welcome to 2018!
2017 was a successful year for us for many reasons. We celebrated our 10th anniversary, won 9 awards that commended our success, and continued to help our students with their learning and careers.
What has been a highlight of 2017 for you?
We hope that 2017 was just as rewarding for you, and that 2018 is just as kind, if not more.
And so it begins…
The New Year. The new resolutions. The new lease of life.
The New Year is supposed to be a time of reflecting upon the past year, appreciating what you have and setting goals to work towards in the upcoming 12 months.
What are your aspirations for 2018?
So how many of you have started a new gym membership, or want to learn a new language? Or even aimed to get a new job or start a new career?
In our opinion, this seems like an awful lot of pressure…
Apparently, 76% of people have given up on their resolution by the time February comes around, with only 8% of people sticking to it for the entire year.
We’re basically setting ourselves up for failure.
Why put so much pressure on yourself?
At Open Study College, we want everyone to succeed so believe that we should take a different approach to achieving our goals:
Want to lose weight?
How about setting yourself small monthly weight loss goals that seem more attainable, as opposed to a large bulk weight loss that seems out of reach.
Want to learn a new language?
If you can’t fit in time, start by getting a pocket dictionary and learning one word per day. Or if you can’t afford lessons, there a plenty of online sites that teach for free.
Want to get a new job or start a career?
Why not start by improving your knowledge with an added qualification. This will boost your CV and employability and put you on the right track for starting a new career.
Our distance learning courses are the perfect way to start.
With over 450 courses to choose from in a range of different subjects, you can take your pick of what suits you and your career needs best.
With a year or more to complete most of our courses, you can work at your own time and pace; there is no need to rush and the pressure is off.
Our pay-monthly plan option ensures that everyone can afford it so there is no need to worry.
Don’t be a part of the 92% of people who can’t complete their goals. Study with Open Study College in 2018 and start your journey towards becoming a part of the 8% of people who succeed with their resolutions.
