With 2022 full of opportunities and possibilities, how will you make the most out of the year ahead? Take a different approach to the typical new year’s resolution by setting goals with intention instead.
Knowing what you want to accomplish is just the beginning. The next step is creating a plan and a method to ensure you achieve everything you envision.
This is Magnum’s guide to setting and achieving goals with intention.
Step 1) Define Your Goal & Your Why
It is vital to define what you want to accomplish and why it is important to you. It is essential to understand the core reasoning behind creating a goal. Clearly outline the purpose for making your goal and evaluate the impact that achieving it will have on your overall life. Envision your success and keep a clear understanding of why this is important to you.
If you have a massive life goal you want to accomplish, break it down into smaller goals. When a big goal is broken down into actionable, daily steps, it makes it feel less daunting. The daily wins will propel you closer to your final objective.
For example, if your objective is to live a healthier lifestyle, smaller goals can include:
Step 2) Create A SMART Plan
Now that you’ve defined your goal and your why, it’s time to lay out a plan of action to help you get there. Magnum believes in the importance of setting SMART goals. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.
An example of a SMART goal is:
To lose 15lbs in 4 months by going to the gym for 1 hour minimum every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday after work.
Step 3) Create A Visual Reminder
It is important to keep your goal top of mind by reminding yourself of your “why”. Create a vision board, either physical or digital, of how accomplishing this goal will make you feel. You can write a motivational reminder on your mirror so you can start your day with the right intention. You can also set reminders on your phone to keep you in a goal-focused frame of mind throughout the day.
Step 4) Make Yourself Accountable
Share your goal and your plan with people who want to see you win. This can include your friends, training partners, loved ones, co-workers, or an online community. They can help keep you motivated, inspired, and focused.
No goal worth accomplishing is simple or easy. But, with some focus, a detailed plan, and some determination, you can cross any finish line.
