5 goals to make this year your most successful

Advertisements


Setting goals at the beginning of the year means that you will know exactly what you need to do all year long to be successful. By setting goals, you have to create a plan that you aim to achieve those goals. By having a plan in place, you will wake up every morning with a clear idea of ​​what you need to do each day. By writing down your goals, there is a 42% greater chance of you achieving those goals than they already appear in your head. It may seem like a small thing but actually creating goals every year and writing them down greatly improves your chances of success.

What is the SMART goal?
SMART goals were largely introduced by Peter Drucker and are now one of the most popular ways to set goals, both for organizations and individuals. SMART is a summary that describes a specific way of writing goals. The SMART summary represents:

Exactly
It is measured
Available
It is worth it
Timed Time
The formula means that all your goals will be wonderfully defined, which is an important part of improving your chances of achieving any goal. To illustrate this point further, let us look at an example of two similar principles to see what the purpose of SMART is:

I want to be more productive this year
I will get up at 5am on Monday to work on my project which is supposed to be done in 3 months
It should be very clear what the SMART goal is, the second. It provides a clear outline of what you will do, how you will do it, and at what time.

“Setting goals is the first step in transforming the invisible to the real.” – Tony Robbins

We will now look at 5 SMART examples you can set for yourself this year to make you more successful. You can copy these targets as they are, or convert part of the SMART summary to something that suits you best.

  1. Write every 6am to get 10 minutes for 2 months
    If you like self-improvement, you are more likely to experience publishing and it is profitable. It can be a great way to showcase and plan for the future so SMART’s best goal is to set it up for the year. We have kept this very short for 10 minutes every day because if you are new to publishing, it is best to start in a short time and build from there.

S – The goal is to write
M – Every day for 10 minutes at 6 p.m.
A – Challenge, but achievable
R – It works if you want to think and plan more
T – 2 months

  1. Drink 2L of water daily for a year
    We all know how good water is for us, but sometimes it’s hard to drink enough each day so setting a SMART goal is a great way to try to drink more water. As you can see, the goal is to determine how much water we will drink each day. This is important as it is something you can easily measure with a 2l bottle.

S – The goal is to drink plenty of water
M – Every day
A – Challenge, but achievable
R – It helps if you want to be healthy
T – 1 year

  1. Exercise three times a week for six months
    We should always incorporate exercise into our daily routines as there are many benefits throughout our lives. The goal most people set is similar to ‘I want to exercise more’. This is not always clear and does not give a clue as to what you will do.

This SMART goal is an example of where you can incorporate running into something like cycling or going to the gym. The key point is to determine the type of exercise you will be doing.

S – The goal is to exercise a lot
M – three times a week
A – Achieved
R – Applicable if you want to get a balance
T – 6 months

  1. Get 7–9 hours of sleep each night for four months
    Getting enough sleep is very important in how we do it the next day, both physically and mentally. It’s easy to sit back and watch an extra Netflix episode, but if you want to produce the next day you need to get enough sleep. Although everyone is different, science says that on average we should all sleep between 7-9 hours and sleep every night. S – Sleep tight
    M – Every day
    A – Make it easy
    R – It works if you want to produce more
    T – 4 months

“If something is important enough, even if the chances are against you, you should do it.” – Elon Musk

  1. Review your goals daily for a month
    Since this post is about intentions, let’s put a policy on intentions. It is easy to write down your goals for getting started, taking action to achieve your goals is the hardest part. One way to improve your chances of achieving your goals is to review them regularly. We have set a time as 1 month for this SMART goal to help build practice. Ideally, you may want to extend this time to daily, year-round.

S – The goal is to explore your goals
M – Every day
A – It’s hard at first, it’s easy
R – Applicable if you want to achieve your goal
T – 1 month

The list above should give you some idea of ​​the goals you can set for this year. Don’t forget that they can be changed to make you look better. For example, you can change running to cycling. The key is to follow the SMART summary in all the goals you set as it greatly improves your chances of success.
