How to Reach your Career Goals

New Year Resolutions are so 2017.  This year, let’s set goals we’ll actually stick to.  

In this week’s video,  You’ll learn this about setting goals:

  1. What you need to know to set goals you’ll achieve

  2. How to hold yourself accountable to goal achievement

  3. And how to boost your goal attainment by 300%


As always the juiciest stuff is in the video below, but if you’re too pressed for time to watch the full video to set killer goals (it’s less than 4 minutes), here’s a quick snapshot.  

  1. Be specific about the goals you want to achieve.  For example, if you want to attack our inbox (instead of procrastinating on those emails),  resist the urge to say something like “This year, I’ll be better with email.”  Instead, try:  “I’ll respond to every email within 24 hours.”  It’s specific, but also reasonable.
  2. Hold Yourself Accountable with an If-Then Plan.  If you want to boost your exercise routine this year set an if-then plan to hold yourself accountable  Something like “If it’s Monday, Wednesday or Friday, then I’m going to go to the gym.”
  3. Change your language.  Most of us spend a lot of time talking about what we “won’t do” this year.  Instead, focus on what you “will do”.  The science behind thought suppression has taught us that the more we say we won’t do something, the more our brains focus on that thing.  So, this year make “won’t” your 4-letter word and focus on what you will do instead.
