Know Your 2011 Goals? If not you, who?
If you haven’t already defined your goals for 2011, time is running out. Remember… you cannot hit a target that you don’t have!
Rather than look only at the traditional SMART goals, take it a few steps further.
First… determine your core values and what is important to you. Instead of re-listing the same goals as you have each year, determine what areas of your life really need focus and improvement.
Secondly… break your goals down into specific areas:
- Social, i.e. volunteer work, organizations, etc.
Next… write your goals down
Next… set deadlines and accountability measurements
Next… refer to your written list regularly
Finally… celebrate small and large accomplishments!
