Before you start setting resolutions for this new year, take time to reflect on your career and personal dreams. Think about what resonates with you and list what would make the most significant impact. Ask yourself: What do I want to achieve in my profession this upcoming year? How do I plan on getting there? Then use your list as a guide when goal-setting for the new year.
Set Measurable Benchmarks For Every Goal
Many people rush into crafting goals without first deciding what success looks like to them.
When setting goals, you must also clearly define measurable achievement benchmarks that can help track progress. These benchmarks will serve as motivation and allow you to accurately measure successes – and failures. This process clarifies what needs to be done and provides a clearer picture of your goal instead of having all the goals in one big lump.
Defining measurable, realistic milestones makes it easier to identify how far you are in achieving your goal and make necessary adjustments if needed.
Keep Focussed On Goal Progress
Having more than one reminder to keep track of our progress helps us to stay motivated and inspired to keep moving forward! Set reminders on your devices, so you will be alerted that a task is due wherever you are.
- Set up reminders on your mobile or smartwatch
- Create digital to-do lists
- Use a digital planner for scheduling
- Use whiteboards for daily and weekly tasks
Now, you commit to tracking your progress more regularly and adjust the milestones if necessary so they are not too ambitious and you lose interest in them. You want the regular tracking of your milestones to motivate you to stay on track and see actual results from your hard work.
Tracking goal progress is needed to give you a clear idea of where adjustments should be made. This process can help identify what’s working, what needs improvement, and any required course corrections.
