3 Goal Setting Tips You Need for 2020

With the new year right around the corner, it is time to start thinking about what goals you want to set for 2020. If goal setting has not always been your strong point, use these 3 goal setting tips to help you get started in the right direction. 

Set Realistic Goals

Setting realistic goals is very important  in order to making them achievable. If you have trouble telling whether or not a goal is realistic, ask someone whom you trust to help you evaluate your goals. You should be careful here to only discuss your goals with someone who is positive and supportive. Some people are just negative and will always shoot down your goals, even if they are realistic. 

Set Measurable Goals

You should have some system in place to measure your goals. This can be tricky since some goals are not easily measured. Use a little creativity here. Some people need to visually see that they are moving toward their goals. Making a goal board and updating it often is a great way to measure your progress and keep you motivated. Use your own creative style to make this board a fun way to track your goals. 

Learn From Setbacks

Setbacks are one of the main reasons people give up on their goals. When they do not see immediate gratification, they give up. If they run into a challenge, they give up. Change your outlook on failures and setbacks. Think of these challenges as stepping stones toward your goals. Each failure or setback taught you something important that you will now use on your journey. They are just rungs in your ladder on the way up to where you want to be. 

2020 can be one of the best years of your life. Use these 3 tips to set and achieve your goals this year.
