1. Set four goals.
Set a goal in each of the following areas:
And one extra goal.
Most of us could use money, health, and a career boost. That leaves one miscellaneous goal.
Need to lose a few pounds? Want to bench press 250 pounds? Follow a healthy diet for six months?
Perhaps you want a promotion, to change companies, or to change fields.
You might want to set a goal for your bank account balance, & earnings, or to pay off your debt.
You could set a goal to travel somewhere, learn a new language, or buy a new car. The possibilities are endless.
2. Measure your current situation.
If you want to increase your savings account to $10,000, you’d best know your current balance. The same goes for your weight if you’re trying to lose weight. Learn where you are now, so you have a starting line.
3. Create a plan.
Based on where you are and where you want to go, what is a logical plan to get there?
• Where are you now?
• Where do you want to go?
• What do you want to achieve?
Remember that you have six months and plan accordingly.
4. Create habits to ensure success.
Want to lose weight?
• Create a workout routine
• Create a meal plans
Want to make more money?
• Create good investing habits
• Create good saving habits
Your habits today determine your results tomorrow.
5. Set short-term goals.
It’s hard to stay focused on a goal for six months, and it’s easy to procrastinate. Set short-term goals that lead to your long-term goals. Sixty days is about right for a short-term goal. Set 60-day and 120-day goals for each of your 6-month goals.
6. Take action.
Even with the best plans in the world, nothing happens until you take action to reach your goals.
• Follow your plan
• Avoid procrastination
• Keep going over your goals
7. Keep a journal.
You’ll get a kick out of looking back on your journal someday.
8. Measure your progress.
Regularly measure your progress. It’s important to know how you’re doing so you can make any adjustments. How will you know if your diet and exercise plans are working if you never get on the scale?
9. Be flexible in your approach.
You’re probably not going to create the perfect plan right out of the gate. There will be a lot of fine-tuning along the way. Stick to your goals but be willing to change how you accomplish them.
10. Cross the finish line.
Giving up is the only way to fail. Keep going, even when you feel like quitting. What can you accomplish in six months? Try it- if you are dedicated, you will be shocked at your results. You can do a lot in six months.
