How can you get anywhere in life if you don’t know where you’re going? Goals act as the stepping stones you need to accomplish to achieve your end dream. Setting intentions makes us accountable and helps us believe in ourselves. Goals fuel our ambition, so it’s crucial to set your goals for the new year now.
Why You Need to Set Your Goals for the New Year Right Now
I’m a big believer in living life in the present. Stop waiting for the ‘perfect’ time to follow your dreams or start your business. Tomorrow isn’t promised so why wait until New Year’s Eve to set your intentions? If you want something, go after it now with everything you’ve got. How amazing will you feel if you achieve one of your 2019 goals before the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve? Here are a few more reasons to set your goals for the new year now:
#1. There’s never a ‘right’ time.
There will always be family, work or personal life dramas to deal with at any one time.
#2. Live in the present.
We’ve all learned the hard way in life by now that tomorrow isn’t promised. Take time out for yourself today and start mapping out where you want to be by this time next year. This quick exercise will help you to identify the milestones you need to accomplish to achieve your end goal.
#3. You’ll feel more motivated.
When you know where you’re going and how you’re going to get there, you’re more likely to stay on your path.
#4. You hold yourself accountable.
Having goals with timelines helps you hold yourself accountable and make time for achieving your goals rather than waiting for free time to fall into your lap.
