This week we are talking about how we can work on setting goals for the new year in a SMART way. Today I will be discussing how we can be more effective in setting goals that are ATTAINABLE/ACHIEVABLE. Goals are meant to help motivate us to meet a standard for self-improvement or for improved performance. In thinking about ways we can make our goals more attainable, I have identified of a number of questions we can ask ourselves in the process of setting SMART goals, and in particular, focusing on making them more attainable.
Happy New Year from Imagine Hope Counseling Group! We hope this new year brings you many blessings and hope for the future. For many of us, setting goals is a tradition that we do this time every year...only to lose momentum in a few weeks or months. Our good intentions get lost in the shuffle and busyness of life, our goals were not attainable or realistic, etc.
