Are you ready to revisit and make the most out of your New Year’s resolutions? One of the keys to success is setting smart goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. By doing this, you can set yourself up for success and achieve the life you desire. Check out the full M.O.M. Live video:
Set Specific Goals
One mistake that many people make when setting goals is being too vague. Instead, you want to create goals that are numbers-based or have a specific outcome in mind. For example, instead of setting a goal to “save money,” set a goal to “put $200 into my savings account every pay period this year.” This is a much more specific and measurable goal that will help you stay on track.
Break Your Goals Down into Achievable Steps
Once you have set your long-term goals, break them down into smaller, more achievable steps. For example, if your goal is to save $5,000 for a down payment on a home, set a monthly goal to put $400 away each month or $200 away from each paycheck if you’re paid biweekly. By breaking your goals down into achievable steps, you can work your way towards your larger goal without feeling overwhelmed.
Use the SMART System
When setting your goals, use the SMART system. SMART stands for specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. By setting goals that meet these criteria, you can ensure that they are achievable and will help you reach your desired outcome. For example, a SMART goal may be to “lose 10 pounds in 90 days by losing 3-4 pounds per month through a healthy diet and exercise.”
Take Action Today
The best way to achieve your goals is to start taking action today. Don’t wait until December 31st to start planning your New Year’s resolutions. Instead, start setting your goals and taking action towards achieving them right now. By doing this, you can start seeing results and making progress towards your goals.
Additional Goals Worth Considering
In addition to health and financial improvements, you may want to consider setting goals for creative and intellectual endeavors, as well as spiritual growth. These goals can help you grow personally and professionally, and give you a sense of accomplishment.
