Happy New Year!
Each year a great number of people set New Year’s resolutions. New Year’s resolutions can sometimes be hard to stick with throughout the year. Often times people set lofty resolutions that don’t get accomplished within the first three months of the year. Resolution setting is usually done with the purest heart, but when the satisfaction associated with them doesn’t seem near people give up. Your goals and your resolutions must line up with your plan for your life. Some people make resolutions that have no significant meaning to their lives, which consequently leads to broken resolutions. It is always great to set resolutions for your personal life, but what about resolutions for your career or better yet your business?
“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change. ”― Heraclitus
Sometimes making resolutions can cause big change in a person’s life. Everyone deals with change differently, one must think whole heartily when making resolutions. When making resolutions I try not to get overwhelmed in setting permanent dates. In addition, I re-name it goal setting; goals can change within a year and are determined by significant events in life. Setting goals for the year would be more adequate for someone who wants to be successful. I’ve been successful in the following approach to setting resolutions:
Set Resolutions Triannually
In my opinion the best approach to goal setting is to set them triannually. In this instance I set four goals for completion three times a year. With this approach I’m not overwhelmed with keeping all of the resolutions at one time. In additions, I am able to keep track of my progress with each one. Set as many or less you would like, four just works best for me.
Write Them Down
As with anything else you must make your goals plain! Write them one time with whatever comes to mind first, then re-write them as simply as you can. If need be, re-write them for more accuracy. While you are writing them, separate them in different categories. With my goals I separate business from personal, I make sure I have a complete list of goals for my business and for my personal life.
