This is the time of the year when people start thinking about next year. And many of us are really looking forward to putting 2020 in the rearview mirror. I’d venture to say that those of you who did set goals had to either really scramble to achieve those goals, or shoved them aside due to the complete upheaval of our business and personal lives.
That being said, 2021 is a new year. We have already lived with the pandemic and really, how much worse can 2021 be (I know, I should never ask that question)? But we should at least be in a better position to set and achieve our 2021 goals.
Here are the benefits I’ve experienced when I’ve set intentional goals:
- Increased clarity
- Healthier relationships
- More contentment
- More focus
Last year, I wrote a blog that outlined the goal-setting process I follow when setting my annual goals. What I like the most about this process is that it is focused on what I want more of in life. I remember the first time I followed this process I was coming off a very intense year, and I realized I wanted more balance and more fun. So, I set my goals with those two things in the forefront of my mind. This whole process allowed me to take a wholistic look at my life, and as a result, I was able to achieve my goals while maintaining balance and having fun.
If you need some help setting goals centered around what you want more of in life, I’d like to invite you to a free webinar on Friday, December 18th at 10 AM Pacific where I’ll walk through the process I use to set my goals. If you can’t make it, don’t worry – I’ll have a recording of the webinar for you to review when you are ready to set your goals.
As you consider 2021, I think through what you want more of. For me, it would be more time with family, more travel and of course, a steady stream of eggs from my free-range chickens!
