Do You Need Resolutions or Goals?
Do you have the determination and motivation you need to fulfill your New Year’s Resolutions and achieve your goals for 2019?
Anyone can set goals but only a small percentage of people actually achieve them. This can boil down to your determination and your motivation.
Before setting any type of New Year’s resolution or goal this year you should sit down and really determine what you want to achieve. Reflect on both your personal and your business life goals.
Then start plotting a course backwards from your end goal. What do you need to do to achieve this? Write down all the steps, big or small, that you need to take to achieve your goal.
As you plot each step you will easily discover if there are any gaps or things missing in your plan. If so, instead of using these things as an excuse to not go move forwards, you can look for ways to work around them.
By planning ahead you can really define your goals more easily. Once you see the steps planned out you can determine if you truly want to put in the effort to attain them. When you commit to this new plan you will already be more determined and motivated.
If your goals are totally unrelated then select your top choice as your first goal and tackle that. You are still only focusing on one thing at a time and this allows you to stay motivated and on track to reach it. While it can help to set deadlines for completing each goal, remember that this is a form of motivation. Certain goals may take much longer than anticipated, and this is perfectly acceptable. Just readjust the rest of the timings.
Always remember that you are bettering your life in some way and these things are not always done overnight. While life may get in the way always keep your goals in mind and get back on track as soon as possible.
