Before 2015 makes its appearance, it is the ideal time to look at your achievements from the current year and set forth goals for the upcoming year. Do you look at the new year as a clean slate? Do you make it a practice to clear out last year’s goals before year end?
Here are items to reflect upon before the new year arrives. Determine now whether you need to change the way you track and monitor your goals and successes:
- Are your goals clearly defined? You need to set goals that have measurable outcomes trackable performance indicators.
- Are you tracking the correct metrics? Are you using the proper tools to measure goals?
- Do you set aside time, on a regular basis, in your calendar and on your to-do list to check-in with your goals and make certain you’re on track? Taking time to regroup and set a new course early on is the best course of action; you don’t want to get to the end of the year and wonder what went wrong.
Take time now to write your goals down and kick start the new year with a plan of action!
