How to Set GoalsBrainstorm a List - Brainstorm, without editing, a list of what you are committed to accomplishing in the next year.
Pick 1 - 3 - From your brainstormed list, choose one to three goals that you are willing to focus on for a year. Aiming for more than 3 can get you off track, especially if you are new at this stuff.
Capture the List - Write our your goals, either on paper or on your computer. The dullest ink is still stronger than the sharpest memory.
How to Get Goals
The Difference - The difference between setting and getting goals is huge. Anyone can set goals, and most people do at the first of the year. Only those committed to a plan get their goals.
Tell Someone - When you tell someone about your goals you are making it public and holding yourself accountable. This increases the chances of you meeting your goals.
Get Regular - Consistency is the key here. Consistent ordinary efforts produce extraordinary results.
Celebrate - So many people forget to do this one. Celebrate and enjoy your hard work. Celebration is motivating, and propels you on to your next set of goals.
