Set yourself up for success
Instead of thinking “what if I fail”, think about what you can achieve through your goals. Next, identify any barriers that may set you back from your goals or stop you from achieving them all together. Prioritize your goals as you adjust your plans.
Another way to ensure your success is to establish accountability in making progress towards achieving your goals. You can do this with an accountability partner—someone who shares their progress on their goals and checks in on yours.
Create SMART goals
Make sure your goals SMART, meaning they are
specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. If your goals do not align with the acronym, they may be too difficult to achieve within a year.
