It’s that time again, the time where we all get a fresh start and set goals and resolutions for the upcoming year. New Year’s Resolutions have a bad reputation as being silly and often quickly forgotten however; done correctly New Year’s Resolutions can be very advantageous.
Goals boost performance however; you have to believe in what you’re doing – goals work best and are more often attained when your values align with the outcome of the goal.
To achieve big goals it takes many clear smaller goals. For example your big goal could be writing the next great American novel, and then a clear goal would be writing a certain amount of words over a set period of time. “Clarity gives us certainty.” as Steven Kotler says, with clear goals you know where to focus your attention. Break down your goal – be specific with both measurement of success and timelines.
Don’t forget a lot of success in achieving goals comes from using support and resources. Reaching out for help is not something to be ashamed of actually it’s one of the best things you can do to reach your goals, ask for help and do your research, exhaust all your resources and don’t leave a stone unturned.
Remember: Life happens:
Plans change so don’t get down on yourself, life happens and sometimes it helps and other times it hinders you from reaching your goals. Don’t let this get you down from committing yourself to progress.
Regardless of the season goal setting, compels us to better ourselves so whether it be a new year or simply a new week focused goal setting will put you on the path to success.
Most importantly don’t forget to celebrate successes, little or big be sure to recognize what you’ve accomplished.
We hope you found this resourceful.
