From CEO to CIO, from Cashier to Financier, December is here! It’s time to start thinking about our New Year’s Resolutions. I’m setting out to get in better shape, hit the corporate bonus and be a better person, father, husband and friend. Resolutions can be a key motivator to me but I often find them too vague. This year, I’m determined to tie specific GOALS to all of them. Goals are the catalyst to map or navigate us through hard work and the personal journey we set out on.
Goals should be attainable and measurable, I’m keeping them simple yet difficult to reach. Goals should push you beyond your comfort zone!
There are several categories I always look to improve on. For instance my career, education, family life, finances, physical health, community service, and, last but not least, my fleeting but important social life
It’s can be a little overwhelming, but I try to remember to crawl before I walk. I know that if I hit my goals along the way it will be a full sprint to the finish line. I’ve got a large 2012 calendar. I’m marking every week, month, quarter I attain my goals. If I get behind I will reevaluate my actions and game plan. In the end it’s being accountable to the company, my family and maybe more importantly myself.
Through smart, hard and consistent work let’s strive to reach our goals for 2012. When we do, I’m celebrating!
Bigger things are right around the corner!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa and here’s to a great New Year!
