It’s easy to set goals, but hard to execute all the way through completion. Will you be one of the 45% of people who make a New Year’s resolution on January 1st? If so, here’s what statistics show:
- 92% won’t keep them
- 75% maintain past the first week
- 64% past one month
- 46% past six months
- BUT: People who make resolutions are 10x more likely to attain their goals than those who don’t
What steps will you take to make sure you’re not one of the 92% who have a goal they want to accomplish but don’t execute to completion?
Setting SMART Goals
In December, the members of our “It’s About Time” virtual productivity program will participate in a goal setting challenge. Debbie discussed the concept of SMART goals, and everyone was challenged to create their own SMART goals for the new year.
Once your goals are set, use them to create something visual that they could have in front of you as a daily reminder to keep focused on the things you want to attain throughout the year.
Building upon this foundation, in January Debbie will be discussing with the group the 10 reasons people procrastinate and 10 strategies to fight procrastination and get priority work done. Once you’ve set goals, how do you make sure you’re moving productively forward on what’s important to you instead of finding ways and reasons to put it off? We’ve got the answers!
