Set goals that are big enough to challenge you


If the goals you want to set for 2017 will not scare you, even a little bit, then such goals wouldn’t be big enough. Don’t be like most people that underestimate themselves. What you normally need is an idea that is inspiring enough to unleash your hidden potential. If such an idea hits your mind and you know if implemented it can greatly reward you, make a resolve to go for it. As long as you never quit and are prepared to do what it takes, you will certainly achieve your goal no matter how crazy the idea may seem at then beginning. There is always a planning process that if you commit to will figure out what you need and how you can achieve almost any goal.

Break down your goals into yearly, quarterly, monthly and weekly goals. In your weekly planning which is extremely important, include specific tasks that must be performed every day of the week. You have to use a daily weekly monthly planner for that purpose, writing down your daily to-do list in order of priority. That will help you to manage your time properly and maximize daily productivity. Getting your tasks completed on the time and dates indicated on your calendar is what makes it possible to achieve weekly goals. That in turn helps you to achieve the long term goals set for 2017 and beyond. To stay on the right track, make sure you constantly review your goals to know your progress and any adjustments you could possibly make. Doing so on a weekly basis can be more helpful to show you whether your daily planning efforts are effective.


Build a support system to be accountable


To be an achiever, you must also make efforts to surround yourself with the right people. Declare your goals to such people and promise what you are going to be doing in order to achieve the goals you have set. Even while at the stage of setting the goals, they can offer constructive criticism that can be invaluable. In fact when they critic your ideas, they become curious of the steps you are going to take to achieve your goal. Those could be your family members, friends or just your fans especially if you have a personal blog and are active on social media. If need be let such people and especially your partner know what’s in your organizer calendar for the week or even month. They will definitely be asking you about things you said are going to be doing, and that is good for accountability. It will push you to take action on every plan on your personal planner.


Financial accountability is also critical


When financial flow increases from your productive work, make sure to take financial planning seriously. Take advantage of financial planning with online software to make sure money isn’t wasted but fueling activities that help achieve your 2017 goals for success.
