How are you doing with those resolutions?! Probably already a failure, huh?
Here are five things to do to be a better goal setter:
1. Don't make resolutions... write down your dreams for the year!
2. Make weekly and monthly goals instead of yearly goals. Sit down on every Sunday and write down what you have to get done for that week. You'll feel so much more organized and ready for the week!
3. Be realistic
4. Watch your progress! Post your goals on your mirror, fridge, anywhere you can see them daily. Write down your progress. This will keep you motivated!
5. Give yourself grace. Listen, life gets messy and no matter how much we plan, surprises will happen. At the end of the year, I sit down with my husband and we talk about the goals we didn't accomplish. We don't let the disappointment well up inside of us. Instead, we laugh about it. We challenge ourselves to get them done the next year and add them to our New Years' list!
Trying to accomplish your dreams and making goals isn't about watching yourself fail, it's all about growing and becoming a better more disciplined person!
So go write your dreams down! Make some goals for this next week, and remember to give yourself grace. Live life to the fullest! You only get one shot at this!
