It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. – Jim George
The first two months of 2023 have not gone as I expected. Can I admit that? Is it ok? Good. It has been a whirlwind and I am just now finding my rhythm.
I was excited for the start of the year. I have goals that I want to crush this year. Have I started any of them? No, not really. Am I going to? Yes.
I have been thinking through how to plan for a couple of the goals I have. What do I need to do first? What steps do I need to take along the way? How do I know that I have achieved the goal?
For the ones I have in mind I have to start with the end result and back my way into them. Let me give you an example:
I have set the goal to podcast this year. Here are the questions I have to answer:
- What is the topic?
- How often will I post?
- Who is the target audience?
- What style podcast do I envision?
- How much content will the chosen topic provide?
I could go on for a bit with questions. My point is this: if I have a goal, I have to break it down into achievable portions. I have to know what the steps are. If I can’t name the steps, how will I k ow when I have achieved them?
I look forward to achieving this year. More to come on goals. For now, #keepmoving #onward #finishstrong
