New Year Goal-Setting

With the new year around the corner, it’s time to set intentions and get concise and clear on your goals. If you don’t have clear goals, it would be like playing soccer, spending your whole life running up and down the field and never scoring.


Make decisions on the things that will get you what you desire.


  1. What do you want?

  2. How do you plan to get it?

  3. How bad do you want it?


Plan it out and write it down, set concrete achievable goals not fleeting wishes. Get crystal clear on the big goals you want to achieve and then work backwards to plan out the small steps that will get you there. Begin by outlining your result goals and then plan out the action steps that will get you those results. An easy way to plan this out is to do a 30-60-90. In order to set manageable goals start by planning out 90 days in the future, then work backwards.

  1. Result goals

    1. Goals that you will accomplish and are clearly defined and measurable.

  2. Action goals

    1. The steps you will take and the things you will do to accomplish your result goals.

In order to get what you want you have to be willing to sacrifice some things, so find out what you are willing to do and what you are willing to give up to get what you want.

To get ultra clear on your goals start with general big goals and then get specific into each area of your life.

  • What are your three most important health, fitness and nutrition goals?

  • What are your three most important relationship goals?

  • What are your three most important business and career goals?

  • What are your three most important financial goals?

  • What are your three most important personal growth goals?

  • What are your three most important community service goals?

Set goals and commit to keeping yourself accountable. Consider your future self, wouldn’t you rather be satisfied with your achievements instead of down on yourself with what you coulda, shoulda, or woulda done?

Big Rocks

Ask yourself: “What are your Big Rocks for this year?”  


Your Big Rocks are your priorities, they are what you need to accomplish, the mission-critical tasks that need to be executed. 


Identify your Big Rocks and schedule time to dedicate to your most important priorities. Don’t allow yourself to get caught up with the day to day tasks or errands, find time for the Big Rocks so you can achieve what you truly desire.


Inspired by Steven Covey, and his book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, your mentality should be focused on beginning with the end in mind. When you know what you’re working towards you can make choices on things that will bring you towards your goals.
