Goals in 2017

New Year’s is a fresh start and resolutions are all about what you can undertake over the next 365 days to improve yourself, but oftentimes we forget our resolutions and fail to attain our goals. A recent article, 6 Ways to Achieve your Goals in the New Year by Deep Patel shares a few things you can do to help set you up for success in 2017.

1. Be Specific.

Your goals should be as specific as possible and you have to understand what you need to do (not just ambiguous goals). For instance, if you want to lose weight, then you should conscientiously watch your diet and consistently workout. Or, if you’re planning to pursue your dream to be a successful freelancer, then you should increase your networks, hone your skills and look for better workspace solutions (office space brokers can assist you in finding the right office space and location for you).

2. Be realistic.

Know your limitations in all aspects (work, personal, time, resources) and don’t overestimate. That can overwhelm you leading to increased chance of failure, but instead be generous with time and effort allocations. Create to do lists and ensure you have not allocated more than 24 hours in a day.  Your goals ought to be realistic and attainable.

3. Be consistent.

Constantly watch your progress and make sure you are actually and consistently doing the things you promised you would do, otherwise you will never be able to attain your goals. Don’t procrastinate or slack, you risk falling back into old habits and finding yourself no further at the end of the year.
