How to Plan Your 2020 Goals

As another year creeps on in, we stand before the decision of how we are going to choose to approach the new opportunity that only comes, well, once a year. In planning successes for a new year, there’s this toggle between wanting to aim big, and wanting to do it right. Managing it all requires balance, discipline, oh—and time. That’s why we have goals for 2020.

There is no one-way ticket to planning your year right, but there is undoubtedly a starting line that can set you going.

Reflect on 2019

Instead of “leaving it all in 2019”, consciously take your lessons with you. Don’t dismiss the year’s contents as discarded items of the past. Take some time and think about what happened this past year.

Self-reflection is a form of self-talk, which can impact how you move forward in your everyday life. Reflecting gives you a chance to process, and with processing comes enlightenment. This type of awareness of what you have been through and done is sometimes all the catalyst you need to know exactly where you want to go.

Try Out the 80/20 Principle

The 80/20 rule of time management is one that employs the concept that only 20% of your goals are going to yield beneficial results. A general way to apply it is to list the things that you consider most important.

Let’s say your list is six items long, cross off the bottom five, and you’ll arrive at the goal that is most likely to work for you. Make as many of these lists as you need to have a better understanding of what is most important to you, then begin the plan of action.

Survey Your Resources

Dedicate time to sifting through your resources. Resources are anything that can help you to arrive at your goal, big or small. You’d be surprised just how much you have at your fingertips without necessarily realizing it. Help is sometimes only an ask away.

Comb through your network, finances, assets, and anything else you can think of as a moving part of your success machine. Leave no stone unturned in terms of what you have at this time without applying additional effort.

Toss Limits

Abolish any beliefs that may be keeping you caged. At times, the only thing between us and meeting our goals is us. We settle into beliefs accumulated from others, experiences, or even our assumptions.

Identify and eliminate what these thoughts, behaviors, or even relationships may be. This is, of course, very difficult to do, especially if you’re comfortable. Become okay with being temporarily uncomfortable for the greater desire and freedom to be whatever you choose.

Set Healthy Boundaries

The flipside to questioning and evolving your limits is making sure to maintain the appropriate ones. Set boundaries when it comes to what you will and won’t accept from yourself in the coming year because, after all, you’re the only person you can control.

Set boundaries when it comes to the things that tend to distract you or get in the way of your goals. Finding a balance between transcending limits and maintaining boundaries is a tricky but necessary part of meeting your goals.

This year, you’ve got this. You’re taking the initiative to make a change or two. Your friends at GR8NESS look forward to being by your side as you follow it through.
