Results, Not Resolutions

Thom Quinn, over at The Q-Log, suggests we go for "Results, Not Resolutions."

Instead of thinking of a single resolution, set some real goals. Most resolutions are wishy-washy at best and an empty promises at worse. Instead, focus on goal-directed behavior which ends with powerful results!

Please consider using the S.M.A.R.T.E.R. Goal System I outlined this summer. This is more work and will take you a few hours to plan your year; however, would you go on vacation without some preparation?

If not, why would not take the time to insure you have the best year ever?

S.M.A.R.T.E.R. Goals

S – Specific, Significant, and Stretching
M – Measurable, Motivational, and Meaningful
A – Adventurous, Attainable, and Action-oriented
R – Realistic, Relevant, and Responsible
T – Time-Bound, Tangible, and Thoughtful
E – Energizing, Exciting, and Excellence
R – Roles, Recorded, and Reviewed
