New Years’ Resolutions And Goals

Another year has passed which means there’s no better time than the present to reflect on the previous years accomplishments, successes, failures, highs and lows then set your resolutions and goals for the coming year.

When setting my goals and resolutions I only consider goals that I am committed to making a true and valiant effort to achieve. Years ago one of my mentors taught me about the “SMART” method for goal setting and I’ve been using it ever since!

What is the SMART method?

  • S = Specific goals
  • M = Measurable goals
  • A = Attainable goals
  • R = Relevant goals
  • T = Time-bound goals

Using this method to write your goals will help keep them realistic and therefore attainable with some effort on your part,  of course.

And now for the giveaway….CLOSED

Most people I talk with have one of two main goals and resolutions that they work on: fitness goals and financial goals. Yes, there are many other goals that you can be working on, but these are the two goals or resolutions that I am focusing on for this giveaway.
