Its a season of the year when everyone usually comes with a list of new year resolutions. It is usually a list of actions that will be discontinued in the coming year. What if I tell you that you dont need new year resolutions. Thats not the way to go. If you have been thinking about doing a list, please stop. There is a better way to it.
We live in a different era and it is twice important that you understand the time and seasons you are living in if success must be attained. New year resolution was the way to go about 5-10 years ago. In this season, the only way to progress is to work with goals. So instead of writing a new year resolution list, set goals for the year 2020.
Here is what goal setting will do for you. It will place you in control of your time and determine what you will do per time. If you follow it well enough, it will determine where you need to be per time. So, what else do you want to achieve with a new year resolution list that goal setting will not do for you. It will even do more because it will definitely change your level.
Three Important Things About Goal Setting

As far as goal setting is concerned, you must have a document where it is well written. Don’t be carried away with the deceit of having all the plans and goals offhand. As someone rightly said, goals must be written down. It must be placed where you can see it on a daily basis to track your success and keep your focus. You may read on goal setting here. Here are three things to work with when setting goals;
Goals must be expressed or written in quantifiable terms. Use percentages and numbers to define what you want to achieve or get done. This is very important, that’s how you know much you are getting done.
Goals must be set with timelines. Set goals must be time bound. It must have what you want to achieve by a particular time or how long a project must take. Put a date to the goals, that’s how you put yourself to work.
