If you are new to goals, start with a few and own them.
Start by brainstorming and limit yourself to 2 to 4 goals in the beginning, so you can stay focused.
As you gain more experience with goals most people can manage a maximum of about 6 at a time.
Think about want you want from your health, wealth, family, business, education, personal development, social life and spirituality.
Oftentimes, our dreams have been crushed, we have been told “No” for so long, been pushed down, and told not to look up, so somewhere along the way we have forgotten how to dream or that we are even allowed to dream.
A goal is a dream with a deadline. Remember to dream BIG!!!
Each of your goals may have a different deadline, that’s okay, you will use your deadline to create your plan of action.
Now it’s time to create SMARTER Goals.
Start with your dreams, wants and desires and transform them into SMARTER Goals by writing a statement that is:
And write them down, post them around your house, your office, carry a list in your wallet and review them regularly, every day, every week and read them out loud.
Now that you know the destination and when you want to get there, you need to plan how to get there.
Start by breaking your time frame into smaller pieces and determining the necessary actions that need to be accomplished.
If you set a goal for the end of the year, break down the necessary actions to monthly checkpoints, then weekly projects and finally daily actions.
Use these checkpoints to assess your progress and make corrective action to stay on target.
Benjamin Franklin said:
“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”
So what are you waiting for?
Have you prepared for this year?
Have you set Goals?

Next week we will look at one of my goals and I will show you my action plan.
