I won’t bore you with my list. There’s something to be said about saying them out loud, but I also know that there’s quite a few being shared this week. Instead, here’s HOW I set my goals for 2020 because I love to give you actionable tips that you can implement today.
My planning started months ago with writing down what my ideal day, week, and year would be like. I write in the present tense and pay attention to emotions so I can imagine what it will actually feel like when I get there.
Yes, even the craziest ones! Get them all on paper even if they seem a little out there. With all the wild ideas on paper, it’s easier to identify the priorities.
I stay on track with one key goal for each area of my life: business, relationships, and personal… a trick I learned by reading “How to Get Sh*t Done” by Erin Falconer.
Psst… Check out my Amazon shop page for the recommendation!
If you want to do X by 2021, what do you need to do each quarter this year to make it happen? Make a plan that you can stick to.
I create blocks of time to work on specific types of work in my Google Calendar based on my ideal weekly schedule. When am I available for meetings? When am I most creative? Workouts, routines, dates with friends, etc. Everything is in my calendar!
I input each of my to-dos into their corresponding block of work. Co-working with my intern, meetings, workouts… everything is scheduled for the next couple weeks.
This level of detail might seem like overkill, but the process helps me stay on track. If it’s in my calendar, it has to happen!
If I learned anything in 2019, it’s to not compare yourself to others. Everyone posts their goals at the same intervals throughout the year: monthly, quarterly, and annually, and that has the possibility to be insanely inspiring or overwhelmingly discouraging.
Yours might look much different than everyone else’s because we’re all in different places. We’ve lived different lives and chase different dreams. And that’s okay. Wherever you are, you’re exactly where you need to be. I promise.
How do you set goals? And how do you make them stick?
