Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success. ~ Pablo Picasso
From your education years to your years in the working world, you will hear and be told about the importance of setting goals.
I’m sure many of you already understand the rewards they can bring (confidence, success, improvement) but perhaps you aren’t sure how to get going?
There’s a few things to remember when setting goals for yourself:
- Set short-term & long-term goals
- Be specific (but flexible)
- Make it measurable
- Write it down
- Reward yourself
And, once you’ve set them, it’s time to start all the hard work!
Whilst on the subject, the other week I posted about creating professional resolutions/goals, and this week I wanted to share with you one of mine:
I received this blogs annual stats report at the end of 2015, and throughout the 5-6 months that it’d been up and running it had racked up the following numbers: 25 posts, 750 views total (highest being 33 views on one day), 33 likes, 84 pictures uploaded
So, my goal for this year: 75 posts, 2000 views total (highest aiming for 50 views on one day), 100 likes, 200 pictures uploaded
What’s your goal for 2016?
