How To Set Yearly Goals

Hey Boost Friend™,

Happy New Year!

January is always an exciting time, because it’s a chance for new beginnings and endless possibilities.

It’s a time when people make resolutions and set goals they want to achieve before the end of the year. Maybe you want to advance in your career, travel to new destinations, or live a healthier lifestyle. Whatever it is that helps you to live your best life, you can achieve it by setting the right goals.

Here are some helpful hints for setting yearly goals and living your best life.

Let Your Goals Be Your Guide

You’d be amazed by how many people don’t achieve the goals they set for themselves.

Maybe the goals were unattainable, leading to frustration and discouragement that caused people to give up on them. Perhaps their desires changed and the goals misled them from what they really wanted. Sometimes external factors get in the way, derailing our plans and causing us to rethink our goals. Even the best-laid plans can go awry.

That’s why it’s important to think of goals as guideposts, and not the final destination. No one explains this better than Kwanza Jones 👇

Goals will rarely take you on a linear path from point A to point B. Instead, they’re often a motivator to get you started on the journey. You may be redirected along the way, and that’s okay!

Goal setting is all about moving forward and looking ahead at what’s next.

That’s why, when setting yearly goals, flexibility is key. Circumstances and priorities can change at any moment. Just because you’ve set a goal doesn’t mean it’s carved in stone. You can always change your goals before they’re accomplished. Flexibility allows you to easily adapt to change as it comes. This way, you’ll be able to adjust your goals so they won’t hold you back from achieving your true desires.

4 Questions to Ask Yourself When Setting Yearly Goals

To set yourself up for success, ask yourself these four questions when setting your yearly goals.

1. What Is It You Want To Do?

Knowing what you want to do helps you lay the stepping stones you’ll need to follow your path to success. If you want a seat on city council, you’ll need to create a campaign, build a following, and earn some votes. Want a new car? Develop a plan to save money, improve your credit, and find a reputable dealership that sells the car you want. Whatever it is that you want will determine the rest of the actions you need to achieve that goal.

2. What Is It You Like To Do?

Achieving your goals requires an investment of your time and energy. If you enjoy doing what’s necessary to reach your objective, you’re much more likely to succeed. Ask yourself this question to help set realistic goals that you can actually attain. When you like what you do, you look forward to the task at hand and face it with energy and excitement. This increases the likelihood that you’ll stick with it and see it through to the end.

3. What Is It You’re Good At Doing?

Understanding what you’re good at doing can help you set goals that you’re more likely to achieve. If you’re not good at something, that doesn’t mean you can’t reach your goal. It just means you may need to enlist the help of people who have those strengths.

4. What Is It You’re Willing to Do?

In setting yearly goals, willingness is a critical part of your success. You have to be willing to put in the work, invest the time, and ask for help when needed. Without this, there’s very little chance you’ll be able to achieve your goals. Instead, your interest will fade, your desire will wane, and you’ll abandon the plan for reaching success. This sort of self-sabotage gets in the way of letting you live your best life. For the best possible outcome, set goals you know you’ll be willing to tackle.
