Setting Goals for Success

by beckygoudy on May 29, 2009


Is your to do list longer than you might like? Do you feel like you’re swimming in things to do with no time to do them? Use these few tips to help set goals for yourself.

Goals have 3 components:

  1. Specifics
  2. Measurements
  3. Deadlines

  • Set only three goals at a time. This helps prevent you from feeling overwhelmed by your master to do list, and keeps your progress manageable.
  • Use present language when setting a goal. Use “I am” as opposed to “I will”, as this helps to reduce procrastination and increases momentum. It helps you set the tone for yourself that you are already in action.

Now, set your three goals and start working that to-do list!
