Have you set goals for the New Year? Here are some important tips to help you construct your goes for next year.
Break down your goals by setting goals for every key area of your life, e.g., spiritual, financial, personal development, family life social responsibility, etc.
Set specific goals for each area. E.g. spiritual: Read through the Bible in a year. Financial: Make an annual income of ten (10) million naira. Etc.
Set a time target for each goal, e.g. Spiritual: finish going through the bible by Dec 31, 2009. Financial: Make a million naira by January 31, 2009.
Write how you will achieve each goal, e.g. Spiritual: Read three chapters of the Old Testament every morning. Financial: Sell at least 10 electronics every week or improve my skills on the job by going for an MBA, thereby getting the desired promotion.
Make sure you set goals that will motivate you for action. If they don’t motivate you, rewrite them to ensure you are motivated.
Do a periodic evaluation of your set goals to be sure you are on course or out of it.
However, do not set small goals because of your past experiences. Set MOTIVATING, BIG and ACHIEVABLE goals. God bless!- Pastor Sam Adeyemi
