One month in 2020 has already come and gone. So the question is, how are those resolutions and goals coming?
If you’ve forgotten about your resolutions already or if you are struggling to work on them, then it may be time to try something new.
For most of us, focusing on goals that are a year away is challenging. Many of us struggle to see ourselves that far down the road. However, most of us can envision where we will be and what we can accomplish over the next 30-60 days.
Therefore, to achieve those new year’s resolutions, it is a great idea to break them down to monthly bitesize goals. Instead of only saying, what do I want to accomplish this year also ask yourself, what can I accomplish over the next 30-days to move closer to my eventual goal.
Which of these goals sounds more realistic, motivating, and attainable: reading 20 books over the next year or reading two books this month? Or how about landing 10 new clients this year or finding 1 new client this month? Imagine how breaking down your resolutions can change your outlook and mindset on achieving them.
There are many individuals who have struggled for years to make meaningful progress on new year’s resolutions until they’ve learned to break them down into manageable chunks. In fact, perennial goal achievers are often those who focus on 30-60 day achievements. And, as you reach shorter-term goals consistently, your longer-term goals can one day become a reality.
