Welcome to week #8 of 2018, the week when most “New Years resolutions” become a distant memory.
So, what about you?
Are you sticking to the goals you set for yourself this year?
Do you even remember the goals you boldly set for 2018?
This week is a great time to recommit to your goals. If you have not written out your goals, get them on paper. Next, set a reminder on your calendar to review your goals on a regular basis. You can decide how often you review your goals but read them over at least once per month.
Once you have reviewed your goals, ask yourself, “Am I taking action to achieve my goals on a regular basis”? Any action, however small, gets you a step closer to what you want to achieve. Even baby steps are better than no steps. However, if you are not paying attention to your goals life may get in the way and you might forget to take those steps.
I review my goals every 5 days. I read each one and ask myself what I have done over the past few days to move closer toward successful achievement of the goal.
You do not have to be taking action on every goal every week. For example, one of my goals is to take a painting class this year. It is not a high priority goal and so I have been focusing my attention on my financial and career goals. But, each week when I review my goals I see my painting class goal and am reminded that it is on my 2018 “to do” list. Had I not committed it to paper and if I was not reviewing it regularly more likely than not it would not get done.
If you are serious about sticking to the goals you set for yourself this year, recommit to them by writing them down and reviewing them regularly. Take action, even if it is just a tiny step, and your success is assured.
