Now is the time to decide:  Are you going to let 2019 happen TO you, or are you going to make it happen FOR you?

It’s hard to believe that the turn of another year is just around the corner!  I have been blessed with many incredible people in my life, and about 10 years ago, one of those people taught me this incredible goal-planning exercise.  I’ve used it religiously every year since, and I can honestly say that annual planning is something that I look forward to each and every year now!  Not only does this system help with the process of setting your goals, but it also makes it easy to track and stay on target.

Again, I ask:  Are you going to let 2019 happen TO you, or are you going to make it happen FOR you?

There are just 4 steps to creating and tracking your annual goals, and we’ll walk through them here!

Step 1

Take some time to determine the roles that you fulfill in your life.  Spouse/parent/family member, friend, businessperson, etc.  Always be sure to add “person” to that list – at least some of your annual goals should be about self-development…  Remember that you can’t give from an empty cup!

My roles follow:
Family member (wife, mother, daughter)
Friend
Businesswoman
Person (self-growth, personal fulfillment, fitness, spirit, extracurricular)

Step 2

Determine how you define success in each of those roles.  Remember to be specific, you’ll want to measure your progress.  Avoid terms like “try harder”, “do better”, “a little”, “a lot”, “more”, “less”.  Some examples of my goals from years past have been:

Family member (wife/mom):  Take 1 week-long vacation with my spouse and son
Friend:  Host 1 dinner party each month
Businesswoman:  Contribute $xxx to my company’s bottom line
Person (extracurricular): Audition for 2 community theatre productions

Step 3

Write your goals with check boxes beside them to track your progress.  For example, if your goal is to sell $100k, create 10 $10k boxes so that you can track your progress chunk by chunk.  You’ll enjoy the process of checking off box by box throughout the year.

Step 4

This step is key!  Print your sheet and carry it in your wallet or purse.  Add a weekly review reminder to your calendar…  Don’t let this sheet collect dust!  Check off your boxes as you move toward your goals!

Are you going to let 2019 happen TO you, or are you going to make it happen FOR you?

  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • Pinterest

The process takes me 30-60 minutes each year, depending on whether I have any major projects coming up that I need to incorporate into my goals.  This is time incredibly well spent, and I encourage you to invest this into yourself.

I leave you with this question, once again:

Are you going to let 2019 happen TO you, or are you going to make it happen FOR you?
