Making Resolutions and Setting Goals for 2019!
What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2019? The most common resolutions people make on a personal level are to exercise more, lose weight, get organized and save money. The start of a new year is also the ideal time of year to define and set your business goals as well.
Why set business goals? Business goals can determine the direction of your career, motivate you to keep moving forward and measure your success. Setting business goals may be something you decide to do individually as personal career goals, with others as a team, or even on a company level. First and foremost, your personal business goals should focus on moving you forward professionally and expanding your skills development.
Examples of personal business goals may include:
- To grow your network
- Learn a new skill
- Become a thought leader in your field
- Set aside time on your calendar each week to manage your emails
- Research business solutions
- Become a better listener
Write down your goals and specific action steps so you can see them and keep track of your success. Don’t rush and try to tackle them all at once. Take your time and focus on only one or two at a time. At the end of the year, take a moment to review all that you have accomplished – you will be surprised by what you can do once you set a goal.

Happy New Year – Here’s to making 2019 your most successful year yet!
Do you want to be more successful this year? Do you want to improve your relationships, your health, and your life? Well, the New Year is a common time for people to evaluate where they are in life, where they want to be, and to look at making a fresh start. Once someone does this, they often turn to setting goals. Goal setting is an important process that starts with considering and deciding just want you want to achieve.
Who really sets goals? Everyone from business professionals, students, parents, and athletes to entertainers and politicians. People set goals for all types of things, the most common categories are:
- Public Service/Volunteerism
Experts advise that you:
- Write down your goal(s) to make the end result more real and obtainable.
- Once you have written down your goals, be sure to put the paper in a visible place (your bathroom mirror, the refrigerator, your desk, the dashboard of your car or even taped to your cellphone!) to remind yourself everyday of these goals.
- Come up with your action plan, listing the steps you need to take in order to achieve your goals.
- Stay focused and on track, and remember it is a process so take it day by day.
Once you start to see progress as you accomplish the steps you have outlined, this will help to keep you motivated and achieve your goal in no time!
