A new year and a new decade is just around the corner. How is 2019? Are you finishing strong? Are there things that should change next year?

Who should be working on their goals and plan for 2020? Maybe you have everything working perfectly and will continue doing what you are doing. If you see some opportunities why not review what is working and what isn’t working. I am currently working with businesses and executives in Westchester County New York on their annual goals review.

Setting a goal is not like a New Year's resolution. That is just a wish. Just wishing and hoping for something isn't going to make it happen. Setting a goal is having a target to shoot for and a plan to get there.

When planning your goals, choose which categories you would like for your goals. Establish the time frame. They could be lifetime goals, 10 year, 5 year, 1 year, 6 month, 3 month, 1 month, or weekly goals. Also, you can have ongoing goals, such as exercising 3 to 5 times a week. Be specific when you create your goals. Don't just write down "I want to weigh less." Write "I will weigh 180 pounds by July 2020."

Make sure your goal statement is positive. Don't say, "I don't want to be fat." Say "I will be a healthy 130 pounds by May 2020." The achievement of a worthwhile goal can seem daunting at first. The easiest way to proceed is to break your goal down into smaller steps. Start with the first step then move onto the next. When making your plans, a good way is to start is from the end part and work your way to the present.

Measure your progress. After you complete a step, check it off! Watching steady progress is a good motivator. A simple example could be if your goal was to be able to do 100 continuous pushups, you could mark off the milestones of 25, 50, 75, 80, and finally 100!

Don't be discouraged by setbacks. All successful people experience setbacks, disappointments, and failure along the way. That's just part of the process. That's part of learning. These setbacks act as course corrections to get you back on target.

There are several success principles used in goal achievement. One is properly programming your mind. You need to review your goal in the morning and at night before you go to bed. Have your goal written on a 3" x 5" card so you can review during the day. At night, ask your subconscious mind for solutions to problems and methods or tools for helping you achieve your goal.

Another important principle is that of persistence. No one has enjoyed great achievement without persistence.

When it comes to achieving your goals, you need to move single-mindedly and relentlessly toward your objective. You will be unstoppable!
