I had a thought this weekend about my goals and how I tend to set them and then life gets in the way and it can take me a while to actually sit down and review how I’m getting on.
By a while sometimes it feels like years slip by and I don’t seem to be achieving what I always set out to do.
So how about a weekly Sunday review, I thought?
Every Sunday, I would sit down and look at my goals for the week and measure my progress against them.
Here’s the crazy thing, when I sat down to think about the week gone by I realised I hadn’t actually set myself a goal for this week.
I have my yearly goal and where I’d like to be in a year from now, but what about a month from now or a week from now?
Aha! Perhaps there is the very issue! In my head I think I’ve set goals because I have a huge ‘To Do’ list. (I always have a huge ‘To Do’ list, I’m sure you can empathise with that!)
But I haven’t said, right – this is what I’d like to achieve this week which actually takes me closer to my bigger goals.
So here’s my goal for this coming week and next Sunday I’ll have a review of how I’ve got on.
“I would like to start using the ‘12 Week Year‘ system properly. So this week I am going to stop thinking in terms of a year and start thinking about the next 12 weeks.
I am going to set my 12 week goals and therefore my weekly goals to help me get there and have that written in a plan before next week.
I am also going to ensure I continue writing a Daily Blog post even though I know right now no-one is reading it!
It’s great practise and eventually, there’ll be thousands of readers!!!”
(By the way if you’re reading this, please comment below and say ‘Hi Jo, I’m a reader!’)
That’s it, they’re my goals for this week.
What are your goals for this week?
Be ready to review them next Sunday!
