Nobody gets more excited by a new year than me.
Have you ever written New Years resolutions, and had them last longer than a few months?
They’re unlikely, right?
I used to do this. Every year I would write a great big list (I’m one of those girls who LOVE writing lists) of what was going to make this year great. Better. The best.
The intention was almost there… But I came to realise that will the intent came action NOW.
That’s why I love welcoming a new month, a new year – new challenges, new goals.
I set out some personal goals and professional ones for me and my team .
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
My top tips for goal setting are simple:
- WRITE DOWN your goals – write down and read back everything it means to achieve that goal. Visualise it. Make it real. Add the emotion.
- Create your ACTION plan – work backwards from your goal and write down everything you need to do to make achieving that goal possible. These are how bite size goals.
- START NOW – to create momentum, you must first create energy. Start this today! You will ever regret it. Take the first action NOW.
- REWARD YOURSELF – and make it something worth working hard for.*
*On that note, I’m off for holidays and training for two weeks. Instead of waiting for the sunshine, we are off to find it. That’s real action taking
