It’s a new year and we all know that the common thing many people do at this period is set a new year resolution, that we hope to open the door to our success. To set new year goals is easy and interesting to do but many people due to some reasons do not always accomplish all or some of their goals. Whichever way, if you are determined to achieve your goals this year, you have made the best decision.
Many things could keep you from achieving your goals this year. At the same time, there are some things you can do to make sure you achieve your goals and ensure success. In this blog post, we talked about different ways you can set yourself up, and tighten your belt to make sure you achieve your goals this year. In this case, we are congratulating and welcoming you to the best year ever!
Have in Mind to Write Down Your Goals
The best way to keep on track with your goals is to write them down. Write down your goals and keep them somewhere to remind yourself of your purpose. This is a great medium to remember most of the integral things you want to achieve this year. There are a lot of ways to keep track of your goals and one of them is a journal.
Writing down your goals in a journal may be helpful in the sense that you will have them written down and written in a place where you can see them daily. But, if you are not sure about writing your goals in your journal, consider writing them down on the wall at home. You can write them on cardboard and plaster them on your wall close to the mattress if you do not want to stain your wall. Also, you can write them somewhere in your car, or anywhere that you see every day. Apart from the fact that in the process of writing your goals down, you will be reminded about what you need to do to get to your goals, you will also be surprised that it works effectively.
Utilize the Right Tools
This might seem like an easy step for most people. But it is a very important one. But what is an ideal tool for goal setting?
Are there certain tools that you need to use to achieve your goals?
There are several tools and they can come in different shapes and sizes but the most important tool that you need is planning. Note that there is a difference between a goal and a plan. A goal is something you are striving to achieve and a plan is something you can utilize to achieve your goals.
Planning is an effective tool that you can use to achieve your goals this year. For instance, if one of your goals for this year is to start a scarf business, you should have a plan for it by asking yourself questions like “How will I start this business and what do I need for this business?” By providing answers to these questions, you are already planning. However, it is the game plan that you use that defines the difference between you and other people and how successful your goal will be.
Make sure you spend at least hours planning your goals and then plan your action steps. The more you plan, the better you will get at implementing your plans. If you don’t plan and then follow through with the goals you make, you may not succeed. When you don’t have a plan, you make a mess. But if you have a plan, you can create a smoother path to achieving your goals.
Use the Latest Technology
While you are focusing on setting your goals, there are a lot of things you can do to improve the way you plan for it and carry it through. To do that, you can use technology. Many tools are useful for people who want to achieve their goals, so you can use them to make sure you reach them.
A great tool I use is an app called Time Tune. This is a day tracker tool that makes it easy for me to pursue my goals. The app allows me to keep a log of my daily exercise, as well as see how much I have worked. The app also allows me to set an alarm and reminders to remind me to stay on track with my goals. Besides, I love to use it to manage my sleep schedule and wake up at the appropriate time. This app also allows you to customize your account to your liking and input your health goals. It is a very useful tool for people who are trying to achieve their goals without being affected. You can download the app here.
These are just a few ways in which you can set goals and carry them through. There are many other tools and resources that you can use to achieve your goals, and you can add more to them. All you have to do is use the right tools for the right goals.
Set a TimeLine (Realistic)
You might think that you can set a goal for the end of the year or the first half of the year. But a better idea is to set a timeline. And this timeline could be 3 months or a year. It depends on whatever timeline you think will help you reach your goal. But this timeline must be realistic and not too long so that you have enough time to work on it.
It is also important to remember that goals setting is a journey and not the destination that defines you. It is the process that defines you and the act of working towards achieving your goals that makes you a different person. So if you think your goals should take more time, you are free to journey towards the goal for a couple of months, a year, and many more, and not just on one day or month.
For example, if you want to start exercising, start with small exercises or exercises in which you can take shorter periods. If you feel like you can do it, do it now. If you don’t feel like you can do it now, start smaller and make small incremental steps to meet your goal.
Many people fail to accomplish their goals because they don’t set enough clear timelines for themselves, and set the right ones as well.
Study Your Competitors
You may be wondering why you would want to learn more about your competitors. If your goals revolve around starting a brand, you need to set up a business strategy. You have to know what your competitors are doing and how they are doing it.
By studying the strategies of your competitors, you can make better use of their assets and make your business more successful than theirs. By studying your competitors, you will learn how to beat them and how to break the news about your products and services to your target audience.
Every company starts a little bit differently, but in most cases, they use the same systems and practices. However, if you don’t study the practices of your competitors, you could get off to a slow start, and that would harm your company and your ability to attract your targeted audience.
By studying the strategies of your competitors, you will also learn how to respond to changes in the market, and you will be able to get an edge over your competitors. In my little space, whenever I am confused about a specific area in business, I visit Entrepreneur to explore and study what I need to grow my business. However, note that learning so much about growing your business and branding is a vital way to achieve your business goal this year.
Evaluate the risks
In setting a goal, you are essentially taking a risk. You are taking the risk of choosing a goal that you may not be able to achieve or that could harm you.
So, before you start setting a goal, make sure that you know if it is possible to achieve it. Don’t let a vague goal scare you off. This might be a year, or a month or a week. If you set the goal for the end of the year or start a business plan, only after evaluating your ability to meet the goal. Then, you should start working towards it.
If you think you can set goals, and if you have set any goals or reached any milestones, let us know in the comments. We’d like to hear about it.
