Only two days left in the year. Looking back, have you accomplished everything you wanted? If not, don’t beat yourself up. Re-evaluate your goals and don’t be afraid to change or modify them. When writing your goals, use the SMART method. Your goals should be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time bound. For example, a good SMART goal would be; my goal is to hire a Professional Organizer by February 1, 2010.
Your goals must be clear and well defined. Consider this, if someone invited you to their home and you’ve never been, how would you find them? Would you get in the car and start driving in hopes that you end up at the right place? Would you de-clutter today and ‘hope’ things stay that way without any effort? Possibly not, so why not map out your goals?
Also be sure your goals are achievable. It’s okay to set outrageous and bold goals as long as you have a plan of action. Don’t set yourself up for failure if you have no desire of achieving that goal. Can you achieve the goal of hiring a Professional Organizer by February 1, 2010? Sure you can, search online or ask friends or family if they know a professional organizer.
Get started today working on your goals, don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today!!
Until next time…
