|'Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible|
into the visible'
It's the beginning of another year and many people are making resolutions and if you're like me your hopeless at keeping them. I like to have goals to work towards instead, to keep me going in the right direction.
I've been looking at ways to make sure I stay focused on my goals this year and found a few tips:
- Only set goals you're interested in. As much as possible you have to set goals for yourself, so think about what your really want.
- Write your goals down to keep them in mind. Have a way to keep remembering them: stickers on the fridge, bathroom mirror or computer. Create a 'mantra' to say out loud, choose 3 - 4 important words to repeat to yourself.
- Review your goals from time to time, it helps keep you motivated. Sometimes your goals have to be adjusted too, life never goes to plan!
- Set deadlines, a month, 6 months, 2 years. Make a plan of how you intend to get to your goals. Decide on some some easy steps to get you going.
Remember sometimes our goals help us to achieve things that at one time seemed impossible.
Have you thought about your goals for 2014, what words would you use?
