New Year, New Goals: Strategies For Getting Started and Achieving More


In this article, it's my turn to "walk the walk," as they say. As promised, here are my personal and professional goals for 2021:




I'm sharing these goals with you for two reasons:

  1. To show you that I actually follow the strategies that I prescribed in the previous article

  2. To hold myself accountable for achieving them 😊


Strategies For My Personal Goals


My personal goals for 2021 are relatively straightforward and will not require much planning or forethought...just simple systems for tracking the books I read, our grandparent visits, and my daily coffee consumption. I have already created an updated contact list for Christmas card recipients, so I will continue to update that as needed and will schedule a few reminders and deadlines for completing that goal.


Strategies For My Professional Goals


A couple of my professional goals are a bit more involved and, thus, will require some additional research, planning, and organization. For goals #1 and #4 in particular, I plan to use a similar strategy to the one I outlined in the previous article. I will start by researching and refining the goals and then create a step-by-step action plan for achieving each one.
