Goals not only help us improve a specific area of our life, but they can also keep us hopeful for the future, which in the state of the world right now is really important. When somebody asks, “What are your new years resolutions?” or “What are your goals for 2022?” it can either be exciting or intimidating.
When thinking about your goals, make sure you know the difference between an aspiration and a goal. A goal should be something that you have (mostly) full control over. An example of this can be; ‘I want to have 5 articles written about my business this year’ versus ‘I am going to reach out to 20 publications this year to promote my business with the hopes of having at least 5 articles written about my business’. Can you guess which one the goal is? If you said the second one, you’re right! This is because you have control of sending emails and the amount of emails you send, but you don’t have control over how many respond or how many are written, but the goal is action-oriented with the hopes of creating the outcome of your aspiration.
Here is a quick guide on how to create goals for the new year that are realistic, sustainable and most of all FLEXIBLE! Life happens, and sometimes things aren’t in our control.
Yes, the classic S.M.A.R.T. goal breakdown is taught a lot, but it’s very important! Here’s a recap:
