“You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.”
In his book, “Atomic Habits,” author James Clear breaks down goal-setting myths and what it really takes to create daily habits. As our team approaches the end of 2021, we’re taking time out of our busy schedules to set tangible, measurable goals for the New Year ahead with the help of the goal-setting Bible that is “Atomic Habits.”
As a growing start-up, it’s so important to make company-wide goals that keep us all motivated and moving in the best direction.
The problem most people face with goals is the follow-through. We believe getting a little vulnerable and sharing our goals with all of you is one of the best ways to hold us accountable. In this post, we’ll share our goal-setting process and also a list of our 2022 goals!
Why You Should Set Goals
Setting goals has several benefits.
For starters, it allows you to know which moves to choose and at what time and in what way.
Goal setting also allows you increased clarity on what you want in life, and in business. It also helps to challenge you to accomplish more success in your life.
Setting goals also helps to increase and align your focus to things that matter. With well-set goals, you don’t just go through the motions.
Goal setting also helps you create clarity and momentum in both your personal and professional life.
Now that you know why it’s essential to set goals, let’s look at how to set goals for a successful 2022.
Essential Guidelines To Setting Goals
Create Milestones And Track Progress
Most people give up on their dreams because they feel that their goals are too big and overwhelming.
However, that shouldn’t be the case.
Dividing your goals into small achievable milestones allows for them to feel more attainable. These little milestones also act as a source of motivation. With each completed milestone, you become more motivated to work on your goals.
It’s also essential to develop a way to track each of your goals. By tracking, you’ll be able to know whether you’re progressing or not.
Think About The Why
If you want to remain motivated as you work towards your goals, it’s vital to think about the “why.”
Why do you want to achieve that goal?
Self-growth experts explain that having a concrete reason for working on a specific goal allows you to remain motivated despite any challenges and setbacks. The same can be said for business goals. Ask yourself why you have that career goal–why is that motivating you? Good things come from knowing the answers to these questions.
