Each new year we see the opportunity to refresh, revitalize, resolve and renew. Our goals are the road map we follow for the year. We determine what is most important to us and what we will honor as our priorities. Start the year off spending time strategizing and writing what will be your focus in personal, professional, spiritual, wellness, family and other goals this year.
• Write down your goals, being very specific.
The more detail you have written down, the more you have made the goal a reality. Keep your goals in view each and every day.
• List the benefits and the obstacles.
The big question is why? What will be the worth of this accomplishment? What challenges will you encountered? Write these down so you know your reasons and rationale for your goals as well as your stumbling blocks.
• Make yourself accountable with deadlines.
Set a date you want to complete the goal and each step along the way. It’s the ways we are accountable that help the most.
• Create a team
Write a list of resources, groups and people to contact who will assist if you ask them.
• Plan your work and work your plan
Create a plan with baby steps along the way that include every day actions. Strategize and list activities that take just 15 minutes a day to make your goal a reality. Make a personal commitment to act on your goals, live up to that commitment every day, and visualize yourself succeeding with this goal. Be sure your time and calendar reflect your commitment and advancement to your goal.
You will see with each baby step a move forward! Keep on moving forward and you have accomplished your goal.
