5 Steps to Setting and Achieving Your Goals

Congratulations on your decision to set and achieve your goals! Our theme at Shore Grow this month is "New Year- New You" and what a way to start a new year with a plan in place.

I always like to start the year with a recap of the last year and then lay out my dreams and goals for the year ahead. Whether it’s in your work life or in your personal life, goal setting is an important part of our success. Here are five steps to help you get started:

  1. Identify your goals: Start by taking some time to think about what you want to achieve. Consider developing both long-term (3 years) and short-term (Less than a year) goals, and be specific about what you want to accomplish. I write mine out in thought webs as I like the creative part of connecting them together 🙂

  2. Make your goals SMART: Once you have a list of goals, use the SMART criteria to make them specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. This will help you create concrete, actionable goals that you can work towards.

  3. Create a plan: Now that you know what you want to achieve, it's time to create a plan to get there. Break your goals down into smaller, more manageable tasks and set deadlines for each one. I like to break my down for every month of the next year.

  4. Stay focused: It's easy to get distracted by other priorities, so it's important to stay focused on your goals. Set aside dedicated time to work on them, and use tools like to-do lists and calendars to stay organized. On the last couple days of each month, I do a check-in with how I did on achieving my targets if I didn’t get it done I move that task to the month that is coming up.

  5. Celebrate your progress: Don't forget to celebrate your successes along the way! Whether it's meeting a deadline or achieving a major milestone, it's important to recognize and appreciate your hard work. Otherwise, you can get discouraged, but be sure to have fun along the way!!!

By following these steps, you'll be well on your way to setting and achieving your goals. We can't wait to hear about them and be sure to share your wins along the way so we can celebrate with you and your team !!!

Good luck on your journey ahead in 2023!
