Each year it amazes me how quickly the calendar pages flip, and how it seems like just the other day we were celebrating the beginning of another twelve months. Here we are, days away from May, and almost halfway through 2008!
So, how are your goals for the year going? You know.... The ones you made with great enthusiasm in January. Are you still hanging in there? Here's 5 Quick Steps To Success With Goal Setting that can help you get back on track for the remainder of 2008.
1. Keep It Simple!
There's a temptation to generate a list of everything you've ever wanted to change. Don't fall for it! You'll have better success fulfilling one or two goals than you will with a list of fifty. You can always add new goals to your list later. Take one thing at a time.
2. Be Specific
The more specific and detailed you are, the easier the next step will be.
3. Make The Plan
Once you know what your goal is, plan it out in clear steps. Your plan doesn't have to be a complicated one. Begin with answering the question, "What is the first step I need to take toward accomplishing my goal?"
4. Write It Down
Write down your goal and your plan of action. Post it on the fridge or in your office. Write you goal in you day-timer or wherever you know you'll see it. This way you'll have a constant reminder of what you're striving for.
5. Get Support!
Accountability works wonders! "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Choose someone that you can be honest with and who will encourage you on a consistent basis for the remainder of the year.
Here's to new ambitions, fresh ideas and motivations. Here's to 2008! May it be all and more than you expect it to be!
