Now that you have reviewed last year and all that you accomplished and looked at what you want to accomplish this year, it is time to create goals and action steps.
Goals don’t have to be huge. They can be simple goals that are a bit of a stretch. I suggest creating quarterly goals and then breaking them down even further. Your goals should be what you want to accomplish. Not what someone else wants you to do or what you think you should be doing. Your goals should light you up and make you happy and excited to go after them.
I also want to remind you that goals can change and that is perfectly OK. I encourage you to re-evaluate your goals from time to time and make sure that they are still on course for what you really want to happen.
Action steps are the breakdown to what needs to be done to accomplish your goals. The best way to do this is to think of each goal and break it down into steps. Then take those steps and break that down into tasks that need to be done to accomplish the step.
When you break things down in this way it makes it much easier to see what you need to do and not get overwhelmed. I highly suggest breaking your goals down to quarterly goals and then breaking that down further to what you need to do each week to move toward those goals. This way you will see on a weekly basis the progress you are making and how things are going. This will also make it easier to see if your action steps moving forward need to be tweaked at all or if your goal has changed and you need to re-evaluate.
If you would like any help with creating your plan of action or accountability to keep you on track in reaching your goals I am happy to help.
