With the start of a new year brings new hope, resolutions and goal setting. Goal setting is an important way to track your progress toward something you hope to achieve. Goal setting involves designing a plan to help keep people motivated and guide them toward something they really want. Goals are intentional, they are strategic plans to help get you where you want to be. Goals are for everyone, no matter where you are in life, your age or your ability, set a goal, ask for help, track your progress and make that change you always wanted to make.
Here are five steps to help with developing a plan:
1. Find something that motivates you, your goal needs to be something you really want.
2. Set Smart Goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely
3. Put them into writing.
4. Make an action plan.
5. Stick to it, hold yourself accountable. Slips will happen, but bounce back and keep going.
