So when the kids went back to school this week, it dawned on me. Approach your goals like school: set goals for 3 months (a school term) and then at the end of the term give yourself a report card so you remain accountable and you know where you need to improve.
This year my goals will be more manageable and by the end of the year I hope to have a better report card
I have divided my goals into 3 categories:
- I want...
- I need...
- How can I help other people...
Each category will have 3 goals which makes it a manageable 9 goals to achieve in 3 months. Term 1 is January to March.
I’m sure 2015 is going to be a great year now that I've finally accepted that setting goals is important. What did that clever man say? "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail"
The best part of my approach is that if I fail this year, I'll give myself permission to be the same age next year. Not that I'm giving myself an incentive to fail or anything.
Do you set goals or resolutions every year? What’s your approach, I’d love to hear in the comments below.
