Each year, I like to dust off my goals from the beginning of the previous year and see just how I did.
I recently shared what my goals are for 2018 and am really excited about them. As I get older (and wiser), my goals have shifted. I no longer carry about the tiny details as much and like to focus more on the bigger pictures. What goals will help me achieve my overall success and what does that success look like? To me it’s all about my family and providing for them. So that’s what helps shape my goals.
I also don’t like calling them resolutions because to me a resolution is something you want to stop. A goal is more positive and it’s about expansion. So that’s why I call them goals instead of resolutions.
Let’s take a look at last year’s goals to see just how I measured up.
As you can see my goals were a little broader than they have been in the past, which means success is open to interpretation. And I love that.
I achieved 7 out of 8 of my goals in 2017. That’s a pretty good passing rate (if I do say so).
What are your goals for 2018? Think bigger, but more manageable. What will make you happier and your family happier. That’s the goals you need to strive for and work towards. Also, that one goal I didn’t achieve – I shifted to 2018. Nothing wrong with not reaching every goal. Sometimes you have to realize that the sacrifices you would have to make to meet everything, may not be worth it. So you shift, you rearrange your goals so that they fit better with what you have going on. You’re not a failure for doing that – your a realist who knows the value of your time, sanity and family is much more important.
