Instead of setting meaningless resolutions, this year you might try picking the ONE thing you could do that would make the BIGGEST contribution to making a change for the better AND then putting in place the PROCESS to make it happen. Goals and resolutions are worthless without a process or system to get there.

GOALS ARE OVERRATED
The new year is knocking on the door and maybe you are knocking on the goal setting door for 2022. I think goal setting is highly overrated. Don’t get me wrong. I believe goal setting has value. I just don’t think it’s nearly as important as everyone makes it out to be. Hang in there as I explain.

It’s not about the goal. It’s about the system.

A goal is an outcome you want. A goal is a result you want to achieve. A goal is great for setting a DIRECTION for which way to go. Yet, it is the system that actually makes it happen. The system is the PROCESS that leads to those results.

Bottom line is this. As humans, WE DON’T RISE TO THE LEVEL OF OUR GOALS, WE FALL TO THE LEVEL OF OUR SYSTEMS.

If you want to achieve something you have to put in place the system to make it happen, and then CONSISTENTLY apply the system.

Think about goals that you’ve had that you’ve not achieved. Why have you not achieved them? What goals have you set that you have achieved? What system did you have in place that created your success?

A healthy lifestyle can significantly reduce the risk of eye health problems. Research conducted by the National Eye Institute (NEI) confirmed that certain variations of nutrients may help preserve vision and reduce the risk of certain eye diseases.

Can you post the Delta Dental plan booklet on the NMRHCA website ASAP? Just learned today that our United Concordia plan ends this Tuesday, June 30, 2020. Who is the contact person at Delta Dental so we get more information about plan coverage? Thank you. Don & Rose Ditmore.
Your letter dated June 1, 2020, arrived today - June 27. This letter let us know that NMRHC has dropped United Concordia, effective July 1, 2020. We have been with United Concordia for over 20 years. Even though your office is closed, why did you not post this notice here on Facebook? Or send us an email? My husband has upcoming dental appointments for implants that had to be rescheduled due to Covid. We don't even know if our dentist accepts Delta Dental and if he is in-network or out-of-network. We also don't know what coverage Delta Dental provides. Do they cover the PPE fees many dentists are now charging? Who are their contact people? Is this information available on the NMRHCA website and is it current? Another major concern is cost. While the increase is relatively small for the next 6 months, what will our monthly rate be effective January 1, 2021? Like many retirees, we are on a fixed income and it would help us to plan ahead. We have been pleased with NMRCA over the years, but we really think this switch could have been planned better. Thank you. Don & Rose Ditmore
Anybody else having trouble accessing their Express Scripts account. I get a message that my benefit plan has ended. 🤨
Waiting for my 1099, have they been mailed?
Thank you for posting on your website under Forms for Retirees the link to the Express Scripts 2018 National Preferred Formulary Exclusions and Preferred Alternatives. This is a valuable piece of information that will accompany us on every medical visit in 2018. We urge all retirees to download, print and keep handy.
Thank you, NM Retiree Health for a great morning of presentations in Las Cruces by you and the various providers. We came over from Arizona to attend and it was well worth it. Had many of our questions answered. Your gifts were great - the cool down towel and especially the Boo-Boo Pocket Holder. Fits perfectly in my vest. Thank you for your efforts.
