2. Don’t set unrealistic goals
When you set goals that don’t follow the SMART framework, you most likely will find yourself not making much progress.
This can lead to a negative view of goal setting or even yourself. It can be easy to blame yourself for not reaching a goal, so make sure you are setting goals that follow the SMART rules.
3. Do start small
You know that saying, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, well the same goes for your goals!
When setting goals, it’s important to set small attainable goals that lead up to your one overarching goal.
This helps you
- Stay motivated
- Stay focused
- Stay on track
4. Don’t set too many goals
We all get eager to achieve or do certain things. But when it comes to goal setting, you should be only focused on one goal at a time.
Pick a goal, break it down, and get to work!
5. Do set a deadline
Picture this… It’s New Years and you’ve set a new goal for yourself. About how long do you think it will take for that goal to completely be thrown out the window?
Probably within the first month, right?
This is because we aren’t setting a hard deadline. Yes, New Year’s goals are set to finish at the end of the year. But that’s only possible if you are setting deadlines for yourself.
Remember, start small. Break your goal down into smaller goals with HARD deadlines for each.
6. Don’t try to do it alone
One reason why people fail to achieve their goals is that they keep them to themselves.
Share your goal with your friends and family!
This will give you more motivation to achieve your goals and it will also give you the chance to have someone who can hold you accountable.
Which is key when it comes to accomplishing them.
7. Do track your progress
Don’t trust your memory to completely remember every little detail you accomplished.
Track your progress and write down your accomplishments!
Writing down/checking off your goals is an extreme confidence booster.
8. Don’t forget to follow the goal setting framework
Having a framework to follow gives you the tools for success when it comes to accomplishing your goals.

10. Don’t give up
What if it’s the end of your deadline and you haven’t reached your goal?
No one said success would be easy. As long as you are actively working towards your goal and doing it the RIGHT way, you have nothing to lose.
