Before the New Year ball drops in Times Squares and Auld Lang Syne plays repeatedly, social media profiles, vision boards, and journals are filled with all the goals individuals hope to achieve within the upcoming year. What happens to the personal and professional goals that we set for ourselves after the New Year’s buzz dies down? This year, you can make a change and actually see your goals come to fruition!
As an Early Accountability Coach, I want to equip you with 3 actionable steps that you can take in the new year and beyond to manifest your goals into a sustainable reality.
1.Clear on Your Goals
Determine the goals that you want to achieve for yourself. Create a written list and make it clear what you would like to accomplish. Organize the list of things that you would like to do in sequential order, determine the resources that you will need to accomplish your goals, and figure out when you can acquire the resources you need. Listing your goals out helps you gain clarity for your desires and it challenges your mind to prioritize the things that are most important to you.
2.Set Deadlines and Create Reminders
A deadline without a goal is just a wish. This quote could never be truer when it comes to achieving the goals that you have for yourself. After you get clear on your goals, make it a point to put clear deadlines in place for yourself. Find the system that works for you in keeping you on track to meeting your deadlines. Make sticky notes, set reminders in your phone, find an accountability partner – whatever it is, find the platform or combination of resources that keeps you aware of the timelines you have committed to for yourself.
3. Surround Yourself with other Masterminds
Make a conscious chose to be mindful and selective about the company that you keep and the energy that they bring into your life. Make time to network and fraternize with individuals and organizations that share similar values and share common goals with you. Iron sharpens iron and this network of individuals can assist you in staying motivated and accountable because you all are on similar paths.
Make this the year that you finally use your drive, determination and focus to confidently hustle and tackle your goals. The time is now – Don’t remain a “visionary” in 2018!
