1. Set Obtainable Goals
We’re not saying we don’t want your goals to be a challenge, but you want to ensure they are obtainable! There is nothing worse then setting your goals to high and never reaching them.
To do this think of your goals as stepping stones, each small achievement towards your overall vision of the life you want to live! Like we said, your goals are your stepping stones, not your end game!
When you have a goal established, set short term goals to motivate to the bigger picture. Break down the big idea into pieces to make it more manageable. Check out our 2021 Goal Setting Worksheet to help you with this!

You wouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket, now would you? The same concept goes for your goals. When you’re laying out your goals break then up into life categories; I.e. personal, family, career etc. whatever is applicable to you and your life.
If one path or goal isn’t playing out the way you expected, this gives you flexibility to redirect your attention to another category and your other goals.
