Setting Goals, Achieving Goals – Tools for Success

Setting goals, achieving goals – tools for success I’ve come across some cool resources for goal setting and goal achievement this week.

10 Tools for Goal Achievement

Lifehacker’s Top 10 Tools for Sticking to Your New Year’s Resolutions is a collection of tools and strategies that are just as useful for goals as for resolutions.

My faves are:

10. Schedule your goals inside your high-energy times

My productivity benefits from scheduling thinking work in the afternoons, when I’m more creative and clear-headed. Mornings are great for admin, emails and returning calls.

9. Make them S.M.A.R.T.

SMART stands for:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Realistic Relevant

    (I think achievable and realistic hit the same note. Relevant matters because you’re more likely to persevere with and achieve a goal that meshes with your larger life goals.)

  • Time-framed.

I love this approach – Life & Goal Organizer and SMART Goals Guide include SMART goal planners.

7. Channel your Inner Seinfeld—Don’t break the chain

The post includes web apps for building your Seinfeldian chain.
