How to Actually Achieve your Goals this Year
Every year on January 1st, people set themselves up for failure. They take their goals for the year and dump them into resolutions without making a solid plan beforehand. Then, two weeks later, those resolutions are in the toilet for another year. Even worse, many businesses adopt the same strategy when it comes to their goals for the year. To convert your goals into achievements, you need a strategy to overcome any hurdles you may encounter.
Move beyond setting goals and take a step towards success by following these tips.
Make it a Priority.
Don’t snooze when it comes to putting your plan into action. Procrastination kills momentum, so get your plan in order and implemented ASAP.
Make it a Habit.
Turn your goal into a part of your daily routine, and it will be realized before you know it. Some people use journals, meditation, or positive visualization to anchor their goals into their day. They say it takes three weeks to make or break a habit, so be sure that your habit is a part of your day, every day, for at least that long.
Make it a Plan.
Sit down and write out a plan with specific actions, benchmarks, and deadlines. Compose it with the same level of planning that you would put into any business plan. Make sure your items are reasonable and actionable.
Make it Flexible.
Your goals may change as you enact them, so be sure to reassess and adapt your plan as necessary. If your approach is not working, be sure to change your tactic. If your plan is working even better than you expected, set a new, loftier goal.
