Wow. It is almost the end of the first quarter of 2017.
Are you still on track with your New Year goals?
How are you doing with your goals?
If you would like to know more about how you can stay on track with your goals this year, here are 6 tips for you:
- Make sure your goals are SMART: when setting goals, you need to ensure that the goals you set are SMART. The goals ought to be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. When you ensure that your goals are SMART, it becomes easy to track them and set plans for them.
- Make sure you set realistic ways to measure your goals: when you set realistic ways to measure your goals, it gets easier to keep on track with your goals. For instance, if you are trying to read more this year, you need to set realistic ways to know how often you read daily, or how many pages of book you need to read daily. You can say if you don’t read 5 pages daily, perhaps you haven’t met your reading goals for that day. Just make sure that you set a realistic way to simply know if you are on track with your goals or not. The more realistic it is, the easier it is to track.
- Be consistent: you also need to ensure that you are consistent with your goals. You need to do away with laziness and procrastination, because these are two of the things that don’t foster consistency. When you start to feel lazy or feel like procrastinating what you ought to now, to later, then you need to remind yourself that laziness and procrastination amount to nothing.
- Have an accountability partner: an accountability partner is someone that can help you make sure you stay on track with your goals. Your accountability partner is someone who will ensure that he or she monitors your goals or how you are doing with your goals. This person will make sure he or she checks on you within an agreed period you both have set out.
- Break down your goals: another way to stay on track with your goals is to break your goals into manageable tasks or ways that you can achieve them daily, weekly, or monthly.
- Take it easy on yourself: just because you are trying to stay on track with your goals doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take it easy on yourself. Take it easy on yourself.
