Q: How do I set my goals with  a practical approach in achieving them?

A: We all have had experiences setting goals like the New Year resolutions – unfortunately the goals have not been achieved thus we all grow skeptical of our goals. The solution lies in setting realistic goals – see below are some strategies which have worked for me and my team members. The original article is from Readers Digest – which I duly acknowledge. 

The following steps could be useful advice in goal setting process:

  1. Be Specific: What do you want to achieve? “ I want to do more exercise” is vague. Instead “I want to do 30minutes of walking a day” is precise and it is measurable.
  2. Go On The Record: Writing down your goals helps imprint them on your brain and shows your commitment to them. Place your list where you can see it as a daily reminder to yourself.
  3. Start Easy: If your aim is 30 minutes’ walking a day, beginning with ten minutes each morning is a realistic and achievable small win. Building on the habit every day over two weeks will boost your confidence and gain momentum.
  4. Divide & Conquer:  Arrange your list into short term and long term goals, break them down into steps. Set a completion date for each step.
  5. Tell Someone: Sharing your goals with your family or friends will help keep you accountable and will ensure you don’t lapse.
  6. Reward Yourself: Acknowledge your achievement of each step or the goal itself with a special reward.
