Last week in Something for Yourself I talked about writing a personal mission statement. I think this is something everyone should do for themselves to make sure you have a written guideline for how you want to live your life.
Another important step towards personal development is setting goals. We're all familiar with setting a New Year's resolution, but those rarely stick, probably because we're not clear on what we really want to accomplish and how we're going to make it happen.
I think one of the most important steps to setting your goals is to actually write them down. If you take the time to put your goals on paper (or a computer screen) then you have something to look back on and remember what you want to accomplish.
Here are some SMART tips on how to set a goal that you can stick to:
The SMART guideline for setting goals is a great way to make sure you are actually capable of completing those goals.
I hope these tips have been helpful to you and will give you some guidelines for setting goals you can actually achieve. Next week I'll be writing about gratitude and how it can impact your life in a positive way.
