2017 New Year’s Resolution… Number 2

This year I’ve decided to type up my New Year’s Resolutions in separate posts. I like to do a little bit of explaining when it comes to goals and this will help me elaborate each goal without writing a novel! ;)

Resolution #1

Resolution #2?

Stick with my new motto: Actions over goals.

I’m typing up New Year’s resolutions. It is OBVIOUS that I like setting goals for myself. Here is the thing about goals, they’re great at giving you an idea of where you want to go/be but just setting a goal won’t get you results. You must perform specific actions to achieve your desired results.

I wish we could set goals like…

Reduce my body fat percentage by 5 points.

Improve my half marathon PR by 7 minutes.

Grow my business by 15%.

Wake up each morning to a clean kitchen.

Set aside 10 minutes per day for relaxation.

… And they would JUST. HAPPEN.

Sadly, that isn’t the way things work!

So, with my 2017 resolution of actions over goals, I am not going to stop setting goals each week or month or annually, but I am going to put specific action steps behind each goal… Actions that require my attention weekly, if not more often. These action steps will help me get closer to my goals and – hopefully! – surpass my own personal expectations.

I’m curious – Do you often set SMART (specific-measurable-attainable-realistic-timely) goals? How often to think about the action needed to meet your goals?

Here’s to 2017 being an ACTION-FILLED year!

  1. Very interesting to see how these play out! I can’t wait for you to see my goal- it’s really uncharacteristic. :)

  2. One of my goals this year was to not go to bed with a dirty kitchen and it seriously does make a HUGE difference in the morning!!
