It is 2023, yet you don’t feel ready for the months ahead. If you think of all the obstacles you faced in previous years to Japa go dey hungry you. But you have decided to go hard this year. It is easy to come up with a list of things to do or achieve in the new year, yet the best of us keep recycling them from one year to the next; I say “us” because I have been guilty. A resolution is simply a promise to yourself to do something, ideally with a plan to follow through. The holidays have passed, and now you are focused on what the new year has to offer. It is time for you to aim for the forefront of limitless opportunities.
People set new year’s resolutions for different reasons; you might need something to drive you in the new year, provide stability, or plan to become the best version of yourself.
Write and plan your goals in the right frame of mind. What do you want to achieve at the end of the year?
How do you hope to accomplish this?
How can you make this a reality?
All of these questions should be answered honestly, without disregarding the thoughts that come to your mind. It seems difficult to plan for a week in advance, not to talk of a whole year, but it is possible. We have done it.
Your goals don’t have to be complex; you are not writing a new constitution. It could be as simple as;
- Living within your financial capabilities
- Establishing a retirement savings strategy
- Learning a new job skill
- Working with a digital agency
- Spending time more productively
“You’ll give yourself your best shot at success if you set a goal that’s doable—and meaningful too.” Jen A. Miller
Any day is a good day to make a personal/business resolution. What matters is that you set goals for yourself and stick to them to make long-term positive changes. More than half of all goals fail to be fulfilled; here are some tips to ensure yours don’t fail.
Write it: You know what you want to change or achieve in the new year. Mentally noting them is not good enough. You have to take your time and write them down. Write down a time frame for each goal and keep them where you can see them.
Be Specific: When writing your goals, it is important to be specific. Writing “I want to run 1000 kilometres in March” when you have never run before is not a concrete goal. Rather, start with an interval for running daily and increase your distance as you get more comfortable. If you run every day, then 1000 kilometres might not be a lot in the long run.
Make realistic goals: You should be able to track and measure your goals. If you want to lose weight, you should have a scale and write down your ideal weight. Keeping a record can help you attain your goals, no matter what they are.
Make your goals achievable: This does not mean you shouldn’t dream big. We are here for you, even if you are Oliver Twist. If you have a business that makes less than ten million a year and your new goal is to make more than fifty million, yet you haven’t changed a thing in your organization. We can’t even help you. You just need prayers.
Get support: Make goals relevant to you and not because of someone else. You will be able to keep your goals if you tell other people who are close to you about them. You might be surprised to learn that you and your loved ones share similar goals.
Reward yourself: This does not mean that after running 5 Kilometres for a 10 kilometres goal, you should not run for the next three months. Reward yourself with things you enjoy. However, you should not reward yourself with things that contradict your goals.
Give yourself time: Bigger goals will take more time; the timeline you give yourself should be realistic. Give yourself enough time to complete your goals. You can set smaller intermediate goals along the way.
Keep showing up: You mustn’t get discouraged after failing; refocus and go at it again and again till you get it. Just do it. learn more
