Setting goals: with the new year just a few weeks away we start thinking of setting new years resolutions. Well we always break those. A few years ago i started doing Goals and reviewing them once a month to see how i'm doing. This has worked so much better. I still use the end of the year to set goals for the following year.
So this challenge is for everyone to set 2011 goals for themselves. If you set goals for 2010 this is a good time to review them.
A useful way to set goals and making them more powerful is to use the SMART mnemonic
S - specific M - measurable A attainable R relevant T time bound
there are also different ways to break goals down. You can see on my sparkblog on how i did mine the last few years. This year i'm thinking of making a few changes from the information i read on researching this challenge.
