A basic function of management is planning. But, you can use planning to manage yourself! It is not too early to start thinking about your 2019 goals! Answer the goal-setting questions below to inspire yourself toward success.
GREAT Goals are:
Outcome focused: Once you understand your WHY (and it's an enthusiastic WHY) you're 90% there!
In line with your values: The more a goal aligns with your inner or core values - the EASIER it will be to NOTE: We can achieve goals that don't align with our values but it's harder to do and less satisfying.
Stated in the positive: "I want healthy fingernails" rather than "I want to stop biting my nails"
Specific (so you know exactly what you're trying to achieve)
Measurable (so you know when you've achieved it!)
Action-oriented (so you can DO something about it!)
Realistic (so it IS achievable) and
Time-Bound (has a deadline)
Focusing on the Outcome:
