Its that time of the year where just about everyone is talking about their New Years Resolutions! We have all made one a time or two.
Honestly I do not care for that term, I prefer New Years Goals. I agree having a new year upon us is a perfect time for a fresh start, but why continue year after year saying you want to do something yet never fully accomplish it.
I started New Years Goals 2 years ago. It was then that I made a goal to read 1 book per month. Anything self improvement or business related. I kept tally of each book to know if I was on track of my goal. I ended 2012 reading 15 amazing books. Since then I have continued the great habit of reading that I have benefited from in so many ways!
I want to share a few simple tips on creating your NEW YEARS GOALS!
1. Get a Notebook:
2.Take some time and reflect on what you want!
Here are a few areas in your life you could create goals:
4. Relationships & Personal
5. Contributions & Giving Back
When reflecting, DREAM big and don’t be afraid of anything. You deserve anything you desire!
3. Write each of your goals down. A Goal is only a wish unless you write it down.
4. Make a plan on how you are going to get there.
Remember, if it is a BIG goal, break it down.
Example: You want to organize your home. Start with Jan. you will organize your master bedroom (you can even time block a weekend to do complete it) then Feb. is your office.
5. Put a date on when you want to achieve your goal! This will give you a deadline and a sense of urgency!
Make 2015 YOUR year! You may have 1 BIG goal on your mind or a few things pulling at your heart that you want to achieve this year. Whatever it may be, you can do it! Stay positive, even when it may get tuff. Keep your notebook of goals on your night table. Turn it into a journal to keep notes and track of your progress. Reward yourself once you achieve it
Cheers to 2015!
