As the year has finally come to a close, it’s a great time to reflect on your goals, lessons learned, and what’s most important to you. It’s also a great time to start planning for 2022.
Maybe 2021 was a great year for you, and you feel like you’re on a roll. Or maybe it was a really hard year and you feel stuck and uninspired.
Wherever you are right now, it’s never too late to set (or reset) your goals and create a plan to make the rest of your life the best of your life. Here’s a simple goal setting process that might help:
1. Write down what you want
Do you want to complete a new book this year? Eat healthier? Start meditating? Imagine that you could have anything you wanted and you just have to pick what you want off a menu.
2. Write Down Your Next Steps
Once you’ve figured out what you want, write down what your next step could be to move toward that goal. If you’re starting a new book, maybe your next step is to brainstorm book ideas, or write one page.
Keep it short and simple so your next step is something you know you can accomplish today or tomorrow in your spare time.
The key to accomplishing big things is to get started and keep going, so don’t overcomplicate it.
3. Take Action
Now that you know what you want and you have your next steps planned out, it’s time to get started. Look at your list and pick one thing you can accomplish today. If you follow this process every day or every week, you’ll be amazed how much progress you can make this year—one step at a time.
I hope this helps!
Happy New Year!
To your success,
