I’ve previously mentioned that I don’t make resolutions, but that I do set yearly goals. I set what I believe to be a few feasible, yet ambitious goals with a year timeline, and then plan to work toward them. Being an optimistic realist I find myself uncertain of how things will turn out in terms of achievement by the year’s end.
Inevitably, life happens. Priorities change to shift the timelines of these goals to “someday” after which point I proceed with the best of intentions, until I finally decide to reset those intentions to align with my actions. Ultimately, I’ve become more aware of the fact that someday is reserved for things that you may want to do, but has the distinction of being not important enough for you to plan for or schedule now.
A failure to fully plan, is a full plan to fail.
What do you know? It’s a new year, and so, a perfect time to hit that reset (and follow/ subscribe) button!
What is Success?
I believe that success is measured in hindsight as an assessment of a series of goals that you’ve worked to achieve. Being an accomplished person means that you’ve gained the courage, discipline, and focus needed to consistently achieve your goals.
Ultimately, I’d like to spend more time in ways that will allow me to attain success and to help others do the same. It’s important to apply previously built momentum from prior successes to future goals and to acknowledge that it’s something rarely achieved alone. I need my courageous crew. Is that you?
What’s one goal that you want to achieve in 2016 and for which you could use some encouragement? Share it in a comment.
