This brand new year is another chance to have a whole new outlook on who you want to be in 2021, your future, and how you want to live the next 12 months.
To be honest, 2020 has come and said farewell very fast. So much has happened worldwide and has influenced most facets of our lives. We have seen the shift to online practices, both in the fields of school, shopping or medical consulting, and in the introduction of educational programmes for growth and teaching, among others. We’ve seen some entrepreneurs, particularly in the foodservice industry, shut their doors for real because of the effects of the pandemic, and how individuals have changed the way they make their living by being in food industries. In summary, it was one heck of a rollercoaster of a year.
Many would certainly focus on ourselves and begin talking about the plan for 2021, in all aspects whether personal or business matter. This practice is why a variety of famous retail institutions are marketing their planners as early as September so that customers can start planning. So here are the steps on setting up your goal for this year:
We’ve learned plenty of painful lessons last year. Without having a little time to look around, you can’t go on. Consider taking some time to dream about 2020. What was doing well? What didn’t happen? Ask a family member, friend, your employees about their opinion. This reflection can help you determine where you are in your personal and professional life, thus in turn, giving you a better view of what you want to do in 2021.
2. Setting Goals
To identify goals that will really improve your life, you should first give priority to what you’d like to accomplish. You’ve already got a bucket list of things you’d like to do, so it’s important to determine where it brings the most impact to spend the time and resources. Do not even forget that all your targets should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely (SMART). By placing all your goals into SMART, you maximize your odds of successfully achieving them. It’s necessary to rate your priorities in order to decide your concentration. Get a target board in your workplace or in a prominent position where you will see it every day.
There is no reason you can’t achieve the goals you set out for yourself – as long as they are reasonable. When you’ve formed you should give priority to your goals, evaluate them for feedback from others. Chatting to a close friend, colleague, or family member about your goals will help you greatly and eventually open up to fresh ideas altogether. It’s always a great idea to talk about your goals out loud to make yourself more accountable.
Don’t forget to review your goals on a regular basis. You’ve put in the work in the steps above to formulate your goals, so be sure to set some time aside to make sure you’re on track. This doesn’t have to be on a daily basis, maybe monthly or quarterly, but ensure that you are measuring your progress.
There you have it! If you haven’t already set up your 2021 goals, what are you waiting for?
While we can’t promise, we suspect that this year will be a lot better than 2020. So get out there and be the best human being you can. And if you need a little virtual help to achieve those goals, you know who to call.
