Setting and Keeping Goals for 2011

Posted on: January 2, 2011

Everyone has things that they want to accomplish. Some people have fairly clear ideas, and some have rather vague ideas, about what they want.

I have often been with clients, friends, family, and acquaintances who have expressed a goal that they want to achieve. But when I ask them, “Do you have a plan?” The answer is usually, “No.”

This does not surprise me, because goal setting and planning is often not something we are taught while growing up. Our normal routine is to pretty much do things as they come along.

Around the start of a new calendar year, most people are thinking about what they want for themselves. But as the year progresses their goals begin to be less and less at the forefront of their thoughts and activities, soon fading into the background until the beginning of the next year.

So I suggest being very clear about what you want. Then sit down and write out a plan. Be sure to inculde every single step that is involved. And then stick to your plan. You can make it happen when you put your mind to it.
