Community Chat: Don’t Quit Coffee Hour: Maintaining Habits Long After the New Year

Online • Pittsburgh

Don’t worry. This coffee chat isn’t about the effects of your favorite caffeinated beverages. It’s about maintaining good habits and sticking to your goals after the novelty of the new year wears off.

Thu, Feb 18, 2021 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM EST

Skip these stats: You’ve probably heard that at least half of all New Year’s resolutions fail. Or is it 80%? Or maybe you’ve heard that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. Or is it 66 days? Maybe you’ve heard that if you set a goal that isn’t SMART, it isn’t worth the paper you wrote it on (if you even wrote it down)!

Start here instead: In our February coffee chat, we’ll be joined by Sonia Jose, MBA, PMP — who’s Senior Offering Manager in Robotics, an Ellevate Pittsburgh leader and all-around awesome person. We’ll check in on how your new habits are coming along and get excited about the goals you’ve set for 2021. Maybe you even created a new habit during the pandemic that you want to continue (we see you, lucky Zoom leggings) or an unfinished goal you want to prioritize (we refuse to give up on homemade sourdough).

You don’t plan to become a stat -- so skip ‘em. Instead, join us to further your plan for success!
