New Year; new list?

  1. Write it down. However big or small, and however silly and unachievable you may think it sounds (at the moment), write each and every goal down in a diary/ type it down in your phone, anything. Once you consciously do that, a step forward has already been taken towards that goal.
  2. Think all round development. Split these goals into a couple of sections, depending on what matters to you the most. For example, for myself, that is — career, self-learning, mindfulness/ spiritual and personal hobbies — this helps you balance your goals and ensure you are leading yourself towards holistic growth.
  3. Time and track. Also split the goals by time — 6 month/ 1 year/ 5 year — whatever suits you best. This gives added structure to your goals and enables you to focus on the right ones at the right time. Further, actively track them against your time scale.
  4. Break it down. For those bigger and more complex goals, break them down into smaller milestone goals that you can tackle and track easier.
  5. Celebrate. Truly celebrate every single one of your goals achieved and graciously tick it off your list! Not only will you feel great, but that will definitely give you added motivation to keep going!
  6. Be flexible. Finally, always remember that change is constant, and naturally, you could find certain goals changing over time. The beauty of making your own lists for yourself is that you can always go back to them and amend them to suit the circumstances.
