How To Set Realistic Goals For The New Year

Goal setting is one of the most effective and measurable ways of creating new beginnings and attaining great feats in the future. Without goals, one lack focus and direction!

Goals helps one to plan, organize, and make best use of time and resources. It channels and enables one to fulfill things like never before.

Desire without a realistic goal is only but a wish.

To help you create new beginnings and set realistic goals for 2018, below are tips to get you started!

Review your goal performance for last year

What went well and what didn't go well with your 2017 goals? Was there something you should have probably done better that could have given you an edge? Write them out and analyze them.

To transform your life, you need to be sincere with yourself and set only realistic goals.

Write out areas you did and didn't do so well in 2017 and review them. Know your performance so you can work on areas that needs to be worked on and eliminate things not needed. By so doing, you can plan better and work harder!

Be specific

You have to be specific about your goals. Don't set goals haphazardly, set goals with a clear purpose and vision in mind. 

For goals to be achievable, they must be clear, detailed, and specific.

Write out areas of your life you want to see positive changes (finance, education, health, blog, career, family, personal, etc.) and make a list of things that would help you achieve them.

Make it attainable

Don't set unrealistic and unattainable goals. If you know you will be so busy in the coming year, don't commit yourself to what you can't do. Don't be lazy about your goals either, take meaningful action towards realizing them. Be SMART!

Express your goals positively.

Have more control over your goals. Be focus, avoid distractions. In order to attain goals, separate what's important from what's relevant. You will agree with me that some things are needful but not all things are necessary, so do the needful and be positive about it.

Attach a time frame to it

Another key thing in setting and achieving goals is to break them into manageable time frames; short-term goals, medium-term goals, and long-term goals. I have weekly and monthly goals, I also have life time goals which helps my transformation and building process yearly. These goals motivates me and encourages me to do more, I think everyone should do the same!

Write goals down, it crystalizes them and gives them a powerful force.

Lastly, 2018 is just around the corner and it's a great time to create new beginnings. Don't just sit down at the same spot and let life happen to you. Consider what you would like to achieve in the coming year, then commit yourself to a better you. That's one of the best ways of having a fulfilled year, it works for me every time!
