Setting Goals for the NewYear
By Lisa Christianson Photography
As we all look forward to saying goodbye to 2020 and raise our glasses to 2021,
here’s some tips to successful goal setting for the new year.
Set Goals you Actually Want to Accomplish.
A good goal is one that will challenge you to be better but doesn’t defeat you mentally or physically. Write a long list of goals, then
pick the ones that will make you
happy,feel accomplished and give yourself a purpose.
Keep Your Future in Mind.
Think of what you would like to
have in your life,and where you’d
like to be in two,  ve, or even 10 years, and see if your goals bring you closer to that picture.
Make a Plan forAccomplishingYour Goals.
This leads us into mapping out the small steps to
reach your end goal. I tend to work backwards in my planning stages,what works best for you?Think about assigning goals to speci c time periods.
Some will have  xed deadlines, while other goals could happen at any time.
Create a System to Review and Update Your Goals. As you move through the year you will need to adjust your plans. If
2020 taught us anything, it’s that to be successful, you need to keep a  uid set of goals and be  exible in how you get there.Consider a quarterly review to be sure you are on track and to adapt your goals.
