It’s that time of the year when everyone set their goals, plan ahead for the year and hope for change and new beginnings. By now a lot of people are already thinking about changing their jobs; companies are looking out to recruit new staffs and all. There’s no better time than now to get your acts right and start thinking fast. Setting your goals and making plans to attain them is very important. But before doing that here are a few things you need to consider when setting your goals.
Make a Review of Your Previous Goals
Before planning for the New Year, think about how the previous year was for you. What were those things you were able to achieve and those you were unable to? Consider your strongest points, weakness, struggles and areas you need to work on.
After doing this, you would be able to set out the things you need to do going forward in the New Year.
Be Specific about it
Think about your goals
What do you need to achieve them? Why do you want to achieve that goal? Can you achieve that goal?
Write down your goals
To keep track of your goals
Write it down in your journal, create a vision board or have it pasted somewhere that you can look at it every time and constantly get reminded.
Split your goals into smaller parts
Setting goals sometimes might seem very overwhelming and might not seem achievable at first. Separate them and assign each for a particular time frame. This would help monitor your progress and motivate you to push yourself to the limit. Creating a progress chart or calendar is a good way to start.
Look out for things you can do to improve on yourself. Go for trainings, seminars, attend events for networking; reach out to people in your industry for advice or mentorship. Doing this can go a long way in self growth.
Most importantly find ways to motivate you towards reaching your goal; once in a while try to reward yourself as you achieve each goal.
Hope this was helpful? Good luck with achieving your goals.
Have an amazing year!
