Setting Big Goals for the New Year

The new year is a chance for renewal, a new direction in life and in business, and the opportunity to mindfully set big goals. Goal setting is important for both people and organizations. Without goals, you lack focus and direction. That’s why it is key to take control of your actions and initiatives, and set benchmarks for success. Having record profits sounds great but if the goal for your business was actually to reduce turnover and create a better company culture, you may find that even a positive outcome falls short.

Whether you are a company setting goals for your business, an entrepreneur setting goals for your next big product release, or an individual looking to set goals for yourself personally, there is a trick to the process. Read on for some key insights into how to set goals that will matter in 2018.

First, take some extra care when you choose your goals. Embrace goals that are:

  • Motivating: Your goals have to get you excited! You need goals that energize you and make you feel happy.
  • Specific: What do the goals look like? How will you reach them? What are the steps?
  • Measurable: How will you know you’re achieving those goals?
  • Attainable: They have to be realistic.
  • Challenging: Your goals should test you, but still be doable.
  • Time-bound: Make a decision about how much time you have to reach the finish line.

Next, use some proven tips and tricks to keep you on-track during the goal-setting process:

  • Write your goals down and look at them daily. Seeing them constantly will keep you motivated.
  • Make a plan of action. How are you going to go about accomplishing these goals?
  • Don’t give up! Goals are meant to challenge you because they are going to change you. Get outside of your comfort zone and don’t quit when things become difficult.
