Plan Your Work Then Work Your Plan

January 24, 2018

Goals. We all have them and we do our best to achieve them. Whether they are set by ourselves or someone else, setting goals to give us something to work towards and focus on throughout the year.

The best thing about setting goals is they help us to focus, work hard and hold ourselves accountable.

One of my favorite methods of setting goals is using the S.M.A.R.T. criteria (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely). Have you ever made a goal and never reached it because it wasn’t achievable? I have! Maybe it was because I had no clear direction or maybe it wasn’t achievable. Whatever the reason, we must continue to set both short and long-term goals that are achievable and S.M.A.R.T.

Take the journey with me and let’s set some goals or at least outline how we will set them.

  1. First, ask yourself questions
    • How do you feel about your life right now?
    • Are you where you want to be?
  2. List things you want to accomplish this year (best part, you make that call)
    • Taking a vacation or
    • Become a yoga instructor or
    • Blog full time
  3. List qualities you would like to develop within yourself
    • More patience or
    • Having more control over your emotions
  4. How are you going to get there?
    • What actions do you need to take to work toward your goals?
    • What work can you do to better develop certain qualities?

Before we set goals, we must have a plan.

  1. First and foremost, write it down!
    • Anytime I have a goal, I always write it down (this helps in making that goal a reality).
  2. DO NOT set too many goals.
    • It might sound negative, but multiple goals divert your focus and keep you from ultimately reaching any of your goals.
  3. Always be clear on what your goals are and use a planner (I will talk about some good planners in another blog).
    • Stay clear of distractions! Turn off your phone, or close the door for a few minutes and set your goals (remember this is time for you).
    • The goals you set should motivate and inspire you, which means you may have to let go of previous goals you once set for yourself.
    • Have a timeframe for your goals, this not only helps you work toward your goals but helps you to stay focused and creates better time management.

It’s important to set both short- and long-term goals. My advice is to write them both down and eventually, your short-term goals will help you reach your long-term goals. For example, my short-term goal is to get this blog completed by tomorrow, while my long-term goal is to grow our blog. A short-term goal can be a goal that you want to reach in the next 3-12 months, while a long-term goal can be reached in a much longer time frame.

Remember, the thing about goal setting is to always make them achievable and realistic. I sometimes forget to do this and then I’m quite upset when I don’t get to where I want to be. When this happens, I walk away and take a break. This helps to release negativity and allows me to shift my perspective.

Share with us a short-term or long-term goal and let’s work on supporting each other to achieve them.
