Simple Solutions for Complex Challenges

It’s a new year, which means updated goals and strategies. Maybe you’ve wanted to quit smoking, lose a few pounds, write a novel or get out of debt. Whatever your dream may be, the thought of achieving it can be daunting. Below are four tips to help you attain whatever changes you decide on.

  • Set and Visualize Your Goals
    Try following in the footsteps of iconic swimmer Michael Phelps, who lists out his goals, looks at them regularly and checks on his progress each day. The 23-time gold medalist has written down his intentions since childhood, envisioning himself swimming the perfect race.
  • Be Honest with Yourself
    Asking yourself what you want, why you want it and what’s holding you back can help you move past obstacles of apprehension and fear. Once you’ve identified the specifics, take action by breaking down big goals into smaller achievements, creating a game plan and tackling one small task at a time.
  • Be S.M.A.R.T.
    A favorite tool for entrepreneurs, this mnemonic acronym stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-Based. Use it to take a granular look at your goals and guide you to achievement.
  • Goals vs. Systems
    Entrepreneur James Clear thinks in systems rather than goals. What’s the difference? A goal is a result while a system includes the steps necessary to reach the desired outcome. If having a goal feels overwhelming or burdensome, Clear suggests giving up the desire for immediate results by committing to the process rather than a specific target.
