In the first two parts of “New Year, New Goals,” I talked about writing realistic goals instead of vague resolutions along with 7 areas of life that need goal setting. Now that the basics are out of the way, I thought I would share a few of my personal goals for 2016!
This past week I have really been putting my head down to complete my list of goals and aspirations for the New Year. I found once I got going, it was pretty easy to find one or two goals in each area I want to accomplish in 2016. In the same manner, I had to keep reminding myself not to get too carried away and keep the list of goals somewhat short. After all, they need to be practical so I can actually achieve them within the year. It also helped to write down short-term goals (ones that could be completed each day, week, or month) that could help pull off my ultimate, year-long goals.
Here’s three of my personal goals for 2016 keeping the S.M.A.R.T.Y. acronym in mind:
So there you have it, three of my goals for 2016! I hope you have enjoyed looking at goal setting over the past week and have found inspiration to write some of your own goals for the year.
Let’s continue the discussion!What advice would you give to others who are beginning to write goals? What works for you when setting goals or resolutions? What doesn’t? Let me know in the comment section below!
