Well, we’ve reached the end of Goal Setting Blogmas, and if you’ve been following along with the actions everyday I hope you have found it to be useful. If you’ve signed up to receive the free PDF it will be with you soon.
Although for some, January 1st seems like an arbitrary time to start planning for your future, many of us are drawn to setting goals at this time of the year because it feels like a clean break from the previous year. This will be particularly true for those of us who are able to take time off from our work in between Christmas and New Year celebrations because the downtime feels like a natural break in procedings.
That doesn’t mean that everything that we were doing stops, but it feels like a natural time to start afresh with new routines, habits and even mindset.
Consequently, that is why I chose Blogmas as the time to put this series of themed posts together.
Of course, goal setting can be done at any time of year and I hope that the information in these posts will serve as useful guidance for you go getters when you are ready to use them.
The four main categores we have covered are:
- Setting goals based on your circumstances, priorities and values
- Creating a plan for achievement that supports those circumstances, priorities and values
- Creating systems that will improve your chances for success
- Tracking and reviewing progress against your plan in order to keep you on track
Goals will be different for everyone and even the same goal has a number of ways of being achieved. Some people achieve weight loss via exercise, others via diet modifications. Some people will pass an exam through self-study, others via tutoring, others again via on the job learning.
We are all different, and what we want differs. How we want to achieve it differs, how we measure it differs. What works for one may not work for another. This is why I have included resources along the way – for a different perspective or the same perspective said different.
Over the next couple of days I will have some additional tips and resources to share with you before returning to my usual schedule. Posting everyday is hard, even when you have spent time planning it!
