What are your goals for 2019?
The beginning of the year is often a time for reflection and forward planning. There is so much value to be gained from spending time to learn the lessons you need to from 2018 and be clear on what is important to you for the year ahead. This activity in itself provides clarity and motivation, but a bit like the well intentioned gym membership, we all know maintaining momentum is where the challenge lies.
Here’s some advice that you might find helpful. The first thing to do is to keep your goals visible. Don’t hide it in a drawer. Frame a copy for your desk, stick it up on your office wall, make it your screen saver on your tablet or laptop, wherever makes sense for you. Just be sure to put it somewhere you will see it often.
Another piece of advice you may find particularly effective for keeping your goals forefront of mind is to make them a part of your decision making process. When you need to make those challenging life choices throughout the year, referring to your documented values, goals and priorities acts as the criteria for guiding that decision. Instead of your goals being nothing more than a nice-to-have wish list, make your goals a tool that adds value to you throughout the year, not just in January.
