What has worked in the past? What hasn’t? Maybe you went in a totally different direction than you expected last year. That’s OK. Take what you have learned and use that to create new goals that will set you up for success.

First, Think Big Picture

What do you actually want to accomplish this year. Instead of getting bogged down by all the little steps in between, think of the most important goals and break it down from there.

Then, Include Measures of Success

How will you ever know if you’ve succeeded without adding in some key measures of success. Make sure your goals are measurable, and you can’t go wrong. Keep reminders visible throughout the year so you don’t lose sight of success.
