Crush Your Goals in 2018 + Free Planner Downloads

The main reason why so many people fail at keeping their New year’s resolutions and goals in general is simply because they don’t have or keep the right mind set.

You don’t have to try hard to brush your teeth, shower or eat everyday. Sometimes it’s hard to get these things in but you do them. Why, because they are  important. Not starving, stinking or having your teeth fall out is on the top of your priority list. They are among your nonnegotiable habits….What other nonnegotiable habits do you practice?

In a note book or piece of paper answer the following questions…

What goals do you have for yourself?

Why are these goals important to you?

How would your life be better for reaching your goals?

Having a meaningful purpose behind your goals will help keep you committed when times get hard.

How to Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Professor Robert S. Rubin (Saint Louis University) wrote about SMART in an article for The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology. He stated that SMART has come to mean different things to different people, as shown below.

To make sure your goals are clear and reachable, each one should be:

  • Specific (simple, sensible, significant).
  • Measurable (meaningful, motivating).
  • Achievable (agreed, attainable).
  • Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based).
  • Time bound (time-based, time limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive).

Professor Rubin also notes that the definition of the SMART acronym may need updating to reflect the importance of efficacy and feedback. However, some authors have expanded it to include extra focus areas; SMARTER, for example, includes Evaluated and Reviewed.

Having Plan of Action

Now that you have your goals all written out in the loveliest of detail…Now what?  What’s going to make thing different this time so that the list doesn’t get neglected 60 days from now?

Set small targets for yourself to hit.

What I do is break my goal up throughout the year. For example:

End of Year Goal –

Quarterly Goal –

Monthly Goal –

Weekly Goal –

Daily Habit –

Think of the above outline as your road map. These are my stepping stones to accomplishing my goal. Now some goals obviously wont take a year. But the idea is the same, take small steps to reaching your goals.

Make it a Habit to Work On Your Goals Each Day

If your goal is to be fluent in Spanish by Christmas. Your daily goal might be to practice for 1 hour 5 days a week. If you miss a day, don’t be too hard on yourself. Just pick back up the next day.

I hope this has helped you get a clearer understanding on how to set SMART goals, break them up into smaller steps and make working on them apart of your daily habit.

Please keep me updated on your process, I would love to hear from you!
