3 Proven Strategies for Establishing Goals
that are Reachable, Empowering, and Will Position You for Success
Do you have trouble setting goals? Do you feel a need to set better goals to increase your success? Apply these strategies to set goals that are reachable, empowering and position you for success!
Strategy #1: Identify your challenges.
Before setting resolutions or goals, spend time identifying your challenges. If you want to become better at time management, first determine what your time management challenges are…
- Are you always late to meetings?
- Do you work too late in the evening?
- Do you forget important family functions?
Ask yourself some general open ended questions and give yourself time to think through them.
- What is missing from your time management success?
- What is getting in the way?
Strategy #2: As part of your goal setting process, develop an action plan with small steps and set milestones.
Think about planning a trip, if you don’t have a map or a plan of how to get to your destination, you will very likely get lost.
Strategy #3: Be sure you are motivated towards your goals
Don’t set a goal just because someone else told you it was a good goal. If it doesn’t mean anything to you, you aren’t likely to work very hard to achieve it. For example, if someone really wants to get organized they are more likely to succeed than if they are only setting their nutrition goals because a family member wants them to do so.
