Happy New Year!
OK, so now what?
I love a New Year. I didn’t always. I looked up it with dread because of all the things I failed to do in the year before. But, not anymore.
You see, I have dedicated the New Year to a day of planning and goal setting. I would look at the past year in review and decide what some of my top goals should be for the coming one. Then I chart it all out on a yearly calendar and then monthly. At the end of each month, I take a look at my larger yearly goals and determine what next steps for the month should be to get me to them. Then each Sunday night, I take a look at my monthly goals and determine what I need to do this week to get me to my monthly goals. You see, I break it all down from he large to the very small. And, then my year becomes manageable.
I use this day planner design to help me chart everything I need to do. Find what works and use it.
So, if you haven’t settled on your top goals for the year, take some time today or this weekend coming. Writing down your goals in specific terms…SMART (specific, measurable, assignable, realistic and time-related) means you’re more likely to achieve them.
And, we want you to achieve them, right?
