Goals are an important part of achieving success in business and life. They keep you focused on the tasks that matter, and help you to adopt the good habits that are vital to your success. If you want to make 2015 your best year ever and reach your goals, follow these tips.
1. Craft realistic, measurable goals. While it’s admirable to have a goal of running a marathon, it may not be realistic if you’ve never run further than the mailbox at the end of your driveway. Setting realistic goals makes it more likely that you’ll achieve them within your specific timeframe, and having measurable goals makes it easier to track your progress.
2. Write it down. Even if your memory is like a steel trap, it helps to write down your goals, and be as specific as you possibly can. When you write down your goals, you help to commit them to memory. Additionally, posting your goals where you can see them—or creating a goal board with pictures that represent your goal—acts as a daily reminder of what you want to achieve so that you can maintain your motivation and complete your goals.
3. Track your progress. One of the main reasons that people fail to reach their goals is that they don’t track their progress. Keeping track of your activities, numbers, etc. not only gets you into the habit of pursuing your goal, it also helps you to stay motivated. Over time, you can see your progress, and if you’re not making the progress you want, you can reassess your plan and take the steps necessary to achieve your goal on time.
