So how do you keep from becoming another member of the 92% Club…those people who fail to set and achieve tangible goals.
First of all, write down specific goals that you want to achieve. Keep your list of goals in front of you. Frame them if you want.
Next talk to other people about your goals. This will make you feel both more excited and more committed.
Now, perhaps the most important task—get organized.
Break larger goals into smaller tasks.
Set up a plan or schedule.
Break down the year into months, and then create specific action steps for each week.
Focus on immediate tasks…only your tasks for today and the week ahead of you…so that you do not get discouraged or overwhelmed.
Schedule a weekly check in with yourself. Evaluate what’s working and what’s not. Remind yourself why you set these goals in the first place.
Choose appropriate milestones and benchmarks for your particular goal. Reward yourself whenever you reach a milestone or benchmark.
