Goal setting tips are in abundance each year, but we find them highly important year-round.
With the advent of each year, most of us want to bring change to our lives. For some it is a resolution, and for others, it’s setting a goal.
But did you know only 8% people actually achieve their resolutions every year? 75% of those who set goals follow them beyond just the first week of the year.
Statistic Brain states that “People who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions.”
It’s the constant discipline of sticking to your goals and resolutions that will make each year a huge success.
Here are our best goal setting tips to help you reach your 2018 goals:
- Aim high, start slow
- Write down your goals
- Make your goals clear
- Be practical about your resolutions, but be passionate too
- Think about what encourages you
- Take action on your goals on time
- Learn to be flexible in your schedule
- Be positive in your work environment
- Believe in yourself
- Track your performance
Andrew Carnegie once said, “if you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.”
Frankly, if you’re looking to set business goals, don’t settle on what’s only “doable” for 2018. What’s only doable isn’t going to move the needle for you or your business.
If you want to achieve a big goal in 2018, be clear about what success needs to be.
Remember it’s your goal, and it’s important to you.
We can share all of the best goal setting tips in the world, but they’ll be all for naught unless you execute your plan.
Make sure you measure your performance and celebrate every success—big or small.
If you can do that—trust me—you will enhance your probabilities of being in the group of those 8% who achieve their goals.
