Goal Setting Works Better Not Resolutions
Since we’re into the new year I always hear about people setting resolutions. I stopped doing that years ago because it never seemed to work. Now I set goals, both writing and personal. Although they sometimes overlap. Goal setting works better not resolutions.
Do I always make all my goals? No, but I don’t let that stress me out. At the beginning of the year I make my list of goals for the entire year, then put it away and I don’t look at it again until the end of the year. I have monthly goals that keep me on track (most of the time).
The best thing I’ve found to make sure my goals are reasonable and aligned for me and the time I have. Sometimes I get ambitious but that’s okay. I never beat myself up for not meeting a goal, especially with my writing because sometimes an opportunity jumps out at me that wasn’t in the plan and I have to jump on it.
Also remember goals need to be measurable, if it’s writing a 100 words a day, to losing 10 pounds this year, to making more time for the family. You can measure all of those. But don’t make goals a big focus that you lose sight of fun. We all need fun and laughter in our lives.
So do you set goals? Or make resolutions?
