November 6, 2019

What goals did you set for yourself in 2019? As you entered the New Year, what were you hoping to accomplish? Though yearend always seems like it’s far in the distance, December can creep up before you know it, and you may have a few lingering goals left to check off. If you feel like it’s too late to make any strides, have no fear. You still can!  

Four strategies to push toward your goals 

In the following weeks, take these four steps to round out 2019 with a bang: 

  1. Review your list and think about your biggest priorities. You’ll have the most luck if you choose just one or two major items to focus on, and put all your energy towards those. This concentrated focus will help you stay on task. Choose goals that will have the biggest payoff in your career.  
  2. If you can’t achieve the entire goal, break it down. If the goal you choose is large, that’s OK. Simply break it down into smaller steps that you’ll be able to accomplish in the next few weeks. Some work towards your goal is better than none at all—and you’ll be able to make plans for how to crush the full goal in 2020.  
  3. Make time to work on your goal. Schedule time specifically dedicated to your goal, even if it’s just a few hours a week. During this time, go somewhere quiet, eliminate distractions and get your work done. Treat it like any other appointment.  
  4. Maximize your time. During the next few weeks, you can open up pockets of time in your schedule by steering clear of distractions. This includes social media, surfing the internet and bingewatching. By taking a brief vacation from these common pitfalls, you can find more time to work on your goals before the year’s end—then sit back and enjoy the holidays, because you accomplished something great!
