Welcome 2018!

Happy New Year! 2017 flew by and now it’s on to 2018! If you’re like us, New Year’s resolutions can be a bit daunting, especially since 80% of people give up on their resolutions by February. That’s why we’ve decided to rename them our 2018 goals instead of resolutions. More to come on what those are!

The first step in creating our 2018 goals was to revisit the SMART goal method:

Specific: Be detailed in what you want to accomplish by identifying the “who, what, when, where, why, and how.”

Measurable: Determine how you want to track your progress.

Attainable: Set expectations for your goals that align with the action steps you are going to take.

Relevant:  Make sure it aligns with your broader goals, whether personally or professionally. Will this contribute to reaching those higher initiatives?

Timely: Set a specific time frame that you will work towards accomplishing actions. Break it up into manageable pieces to make the tasks less daunting.

So there it is – the steps to creating goals (or resolutions) for the new year that you can actually achieve!

What are your 2018 goals?
