Setting New Years Goals and Resolutions

When a year is almost over and it's now time to start getting onto our goals for the following year. Having a destination is 80% of the battle when it comes to attaining your goal. Without a destination we just continue doing what we are used to.

“First say to yourself what you would be; then do what you have to do.” ~Epictetus

Here is the challenge for the day to get us moving towards our life's highest and best good:

  1. Write down between 1 and 4 goals that you would like to accomplish within the next 3 months (life purpose, prosperity, abundance, fitness and health or spiritually related) & post it where you can see it daily.

  2. Each morning as part of your daily ritual,  choose 1 goal and write down 10 small steps you could take towards your goal.

  3. At the beginning of each week (I like Sundays) decide on taking 1 small step you could take towards each of your goals. Make sure each step is 'smart'. Name a time, place and how you will measure the success of the step. Then decide on at least 2 backup plans in case you cannot 'take the step' at your appointed time and place.

  4. At the end of the week (Sunday) go over your goals and assign yourself a percentage for how well you did for each goal's step. If you didn't score well, cut next week's step in half so that it is easier to attain. The smaller the step, the quicker you can take it, and the easier it will seem to move towards your goal.

Update: Recently I have started implementing micro habits for my new habits/goals for the new year. These have been absolutely amazing and I have kept my resolutions and they have be bounding off placings for brand new ventures.
