Goal of the Week #46: Plan out Your Year

CalendarThis week’s goal: Plan out your Year. Last week’s goal was to determine where you want to be at the end of 2014. This week’s goal is to figure out how you are going to do it. Take your end-of-the-year goals and figure out what you need to accomplish each month in order to get them done. If you are writing a book this year, give yourself outline, chapter, and rewrite deadlines, and assign them throughout the year. If you plan to start a business, figure out what needs to be done in reasonable increments in order to do so. If you want to make your blog a must-read in your industry – and get on a top-10 list for 2014 – decide what you need to do each month to develop your content, extend your reach, and get noticed.

No matter what your plans for 2014, remember anything is achievable. Just set goals and reasonable deadlines … and make sure you stay on track!

What’s your big goal for 2014? 

January 2014 Goals

FireworksHappy New Year, everyone! The best thing about a brand new year is the fresh start that comes with it. This week, take a few minutes – if you haven’t already done so – and think about your goals for the year.

These should be big-picture goals that you will focus on throughout the year. Do you want to write a book this year? Start a blog? Start a business? Create an app? Grow your business?

Make sure you come up with a few personal goals as well: network regularly (once or twice a month), lose a certain amount of weight (exercise more, eat healthier foods), move, get a new roommate, really anything that will improve your personal life which will in turn help you move forward in your professional life.

Whatever you decide, write down your goals and look at them on a regular basis. Reviewing your goals consistently will help you to stay focused and keep your eye on the prize!
