Goal Setting Tips for a 2020 Vision

    Goal Setting Tips for a 2020 Vision

    Dec 30, 2019

    After all the gifts are packed away and the leftovers are eaten, the coming New Year starts to feel like a welcomed new beginning. Whether you are looking to revamp your professional goals or simply want to focus on making changes of a more personal nature, 2020 is a great time to refocus and adopt a new vision. 

    Resolutions can be something of a pitfall because as we all know, they are easily made and often easily broken. Instead of making resolutions this year, why not consider setting some new goals. Did you know you are 42% more likely to stick to a goal when you put it in writing? 

    Take some time at the beginning of the year to identify your goals and jot them down. Then you'll be on your way to achieving them! 

    We are looking for ways to be more intentional about our goal setting, and along those lines decided to share some practical tips that might come in handy no matter what industry or stage of life you're in. 

    Cast a Future Memory - 

    It can be fun to think back on years gone by, and feel a warmth that comes from fond memories. But did you know that looking ahead can have positive effects on helping you get where you want to go? 

    Imagine yourself in five years. Where might you be living? What is your career? Who are you spending time with? Does your life include travel? Community service? Being part of a faith or spiritual community? 

    Let yourself dream big as you consider what it all might look like. 

    Set SMART Goals - 

    You may have heard this before, but it is worth repeating that any goals you set should be S-M-A-R-T. Specific. Measurable. Achievable. Relevant. Time-Bound. 

    Keeping your goals to these categories will help ensure your success. 

    Another tip is to divide your goals into categories based on which areas of your life they apply to. It might include things like Health, Money, Career, Friends/Social, and Community. 

    Don't try to overhaul your entire life. Just pick a few reasonable, meaningful goals and focus on those. 

    Make 2020 the Best Year Yet! - 

    

    If you want 2020 to be the best year yet, first recognize your goals and be honest with yourself about how to make them a reality. 

    Every small step adds up to help you get where you want to go!
