Happy Wednesday my loves!
Well today marks the second day into 2013!!!
While many are busy making resolutions, I am taking this opportunity to revisit and edit the goals that I made last year as well as create new ones that will keep me focused on what's important. And instead of just verbalizing them, I like to write them down for accountability purposes. When my honey and I discussed 2013 goals, he even suggested that we write them down together and make a contract so to speak, wherein we can be each others' accountability partners. Great idea babe!!!
A little important tidbit that I've learned from my job is that when setting goals you must make sure that they are SMART (who knew there were lessons to be learned at work)!
Specific-goals must be specific enough to answer the 5 "W" questions
Measurable-set target dates to ensure you stay on task
Attainable-plan steps wisely so that you are able to carry out your goals
Realistic-set goals that you are willing and able to accomplish
Timely-time frames create a sense of urgency
