So, you’ve been inspired to start setting some goals of your own. Maybe you’ve decided you’re tired of seeing the same mountain, around and around again. Has your life has followed the same pattern for the last several years with very little change or forward progress?
This time, you’re taking charge of your destiny and you want to direct the course of your life instead of letting someone else direct it for you. If you have decided you’re tired of arriving at the end of each year feeling like once again you missed your potential then you need to set some new goals. This year you can make changes and reach your potential!
Do you want to lose some weight and get healthy? Would you like to start your own business? Have you dreamt of an island vacation? Then get started setting some goals and checking off your progress!
The first step to setting goals is to remember is to keep them short and sweet!
Procrastination is the enemy of goal setters. You need to avoid the temptation to procrastinate at all cost! Therefore keeping your goal date set to no more than 90 days means you are forced to make the best use of the limited time you have to achieve your goal. Creating a 90-day goal means you must take an action step each day towards your goal. This keeps your goal before your eyes every day.
Setting 90-day goal starts the timer. It is enough time to truly accomplish something of great value, without being so much time that you can procrastinate, or even forget about the goal together. You need a goal that requires you to start now, to do something today! Goal setters have created a habit of setting short term goals that keep you moving forward and reaching your long-term goals sooner. Set your goals with the three tips of strong short term goals we shared in a previous post. Don’t forget to write down the goals and check in with your written goals weekly. You’re on your way to seeing your next 90 days moving forward with more energy and excitement than ever before!
