Review Your 2015 Goals Now &
Start Planning Goals for the New Year!
The end of the year is a great time to reflect on what we have accomplished over the past twelve months, and also to set goals for the upcoming New Year. But, why not start now?! It isn’t too late to achieve some of your 2015 goals. We have October, November and December to excel in our personal and professional lives.
Set Your Goals for the Next 3 months
Come up with three things that you would like to accomplish within the next three months. Be sure that they are realistic and attainable. Next, write them down. I like to journal and use my daily planner, so I set deadlines in my electronic and paper planners. I like to also, print pictures that reflect my goals and place it throughout my journal and planner.
My goals for the next 3 months are:
Celebrate Your Achievements
It’s never too early to celebrate! Take some time to reflect on what you have succeeded at this point of 2015. What were some major goals that you set, and achieved? What were some unexpected accomplishments that you can pat yourself on the back for? It's important to pause and to give yourself the credit you deserve, so that you can use that as motivation to keep moving forward.
One way I plan to celebrate, is to gather some sister-friends together for dinner at my apartment. This will keep me on track for my financial management goals, know what’s going into my body and most importantly I get to celebrate my sister-friends in the process.
What ways can you celebrate and give yourself a pat on the back? Make it fun!
Picture YOUR Future
Take some time for some BIG creative daydreaming, and visualize about your future. What's your dream career? A business owner? An event planner? A blogger? A professional motivator and speaker? With your ultimate goal in mind, design some steps you can take at this point in time to put yourself closer to realizing that dream. Taking small steps first makes that which seems impossible, a real possibility!
“I run with purpose in every step.” (1 Corinthians 9:26a NLT)
