New Year - New Dreams & Goals

Another year gone by. They sure go by fast.  New year means more opportunities both personally and professionally.

So, what's your plan for the new year? Is this the year you are finally going to pursue that long sought-after goal? Do you have it in you? You work harder, you work longer, smarter. It's nice to have a plan, to dream of a goal that you hope to achieve.

The problem is that reality, which is often ugly and messy, often unfolds quite differently from our clean, efficient plans, laid out so neatly on January 1. When dreaming or planning, we don't often factor in days when we are tired, ill, injured, sore, or just plain not-into-working. Some days when you are raring to go, bad weather or an unscheduled emergency puts a damper on your intended goal.

There are many things we can do to improve our attempt at attaining our dreams in 2013:

  • Set concrete goals
  • Exercise more
  • Have someone keep you accountable
  • Improve our diet
  • Keep a detailed work journal
  • Get more rest

Whether or not we are actually able to achieve them, setting goals to improve is a worthwhile pursuit. It defines our effort, which usually results in improved performance. Aimlessly going from day to day can result in stagnation, even if you are only in the sport for participation.

Whatever your goals, you should bring integrity and validity to them. It does not matter if that goal is to break the world record in the marathon or be number 1 in your office.. It's your achievement; thus, the feeling of accomplishment and the journey to get there are what it's all about.

A new year is simply a demarcation on the calendar, but I have always found it a good time to assess and reflect upon my own self.  My motivation level may not make it all the way through the year, but I know this is the time I have set to commence achieving specific goals.

In the end, dreams do matter. They are the starting point for fulfillment in life.  I wish all of you the best in realizing your own dreams and goals this year. There is no time like the present—before you know it, it will be gone!
