3 simple steps to achieve your 2023 goals!

2022 went at a rate that quantum physics is still unable to account for. Thank god I had something to work toward!

To begin with, let me say that I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. But I do prefer to make attainable, quantifiable, and practical goals. In order to have a sense of commitment, I share them with others. I resolved to run at least 5 kilometres (3 miles) every other day last year. After a “short” 25-year hiatus, I had just started jogging again and felt this would be a wonderful challenge. I was prosperous. Over 182 runs last year, I averaged 6.18km (3.8 miles) per outing. The consequence was that I lost 39 extra pounds.

I’m in excellent physical and mental shape because I achieved my #objective. What was required? A heart rate monitor, a loving and encouraging wife, some nice running shoes, a heart rate monitor to make sure my 50-year-old ticker didn’t quit ticking—that would kind of negate the entire point—tenacity to run in occasionally difficult conditions—every other day—were also necessary.

How about the year 2023? How are you doing? Do you have any goals set?

If you already have, congrats! If you’ve actually put things down on paper, you receive extra points. If you have additionally shared them with others, you will receive the first-place huge blue rosette.

Get started on setting your 2023 #goals if you haven’t already.

I offer three tricks to setting your goals.

  1. Make them unique to you. Set your own objectives, not those of others.
  2. Make them useful. They may be both personal and professional, or both.
  3. Spread the word about them. You may commit to achieving achievement thanks to this.

Actually, this activity is not magical. All you have to do is ask yourself, “What do I really want to do in 2022 before it becomes 2023?”

I deal with sales professionals whose ability to produce revenue is essential to their survival. I continue to be astounded by the number of talented people I talk to who have not taken the time to plan out their supporting tactics or set down their #goals. I shudder to think how much more successful they would be if they created a strategy to achieve their goals, created a plan to get there, then communicated those #goals with their partner, colleague, or sales manager—or all three—or all three!

At a sales convention in US a few years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Avi. Avi, who is an authored the Soul book series, is a genuinely motivational and entertaining speaker. I want to highlight one of Avi’s notable suggestions when he talked about making goals. On the tables, Avi had placed little cards for us to fill out. He instructed us to write one goal on a piece of paper along with a deadline for fulfilment. He then asked us to get two or three other people to sign the goal without endorsing it or passing judgement, only to acknowledge it. Since then, I have adopted this straight forward #idea because it is very helpful!

My final piece of advice is to always make your goals clear. They serve no purpose if you store them in a drawer or a binder. Post them in your office, keep a copy of them on your closet door so you can see them every morning as you get dressed, carry a tiny card with them in your wallet or purse, and you might even consider making them your computer’s screen saver. Subliminal cues are effective. And don’t forget to monitor your development. I discovered that keeping my running log updated every other day was sufficient.

Make plans for a fantastic year. I hope you achieve your 2023 #Goals!
