How to achieve your new year goals
along the road. There is no such thing as perfect planning for the night ahead because no one can think about every possible outcome for each situation. It’s true that sh*t happens.
It’s all about how you can overcome the challenges when things don’t go according to plan.
Last week we had our 3rd Your Career Magazine launch and I am so thankful for the way it went!As apart of my resolution, I wanted to include a magic trick in my public speaking and engage the audience in a different way.I never thought I'd be able to perform magic in-front of these many people there. After all magic was just a hobby for me. At the end of the night. Not only we gotten great feedback from the crowd about it but also makes the night so memorable. Anything you put your mind into doing, you can achieve it. Don't limit yourself to things you think is impossible because there is no such thing!My next goal for 2020 is to do Stand Up Comedy so don't miss out on our next event, it will definitely be a blast ??

I am glad that everyone gained some valuable insight and built some meaningful connection so they can start the new years with a great intention.
For those who weren’t able to make it, it’s also your time to attract and most importantly create your own opportunities in 2020. Sometimes it’s not because you don’t have opportunities coming your way but it’s because you haven’t been able to see it. And if you
happen to not feel in abundance of opportunities, then you must go out there and make it happen for yourself.
At the last event, I wanted to host an activity that would give the crowd something to work towards in the new year. The activity included understanding the issues they might be facing in achieving their target salary rate. Ideally, we all have a salary amount that we are hoping to earn or a goal that we are trying to achieve.
So how do you plan to get there?
I usually tell my clients to break down their achievement into SMART goals.
What are SMART goals?
Specific: Well defined and clear.
Measurable: With specific criteria that can measure your progress towards the goal.
Achievable: Attainable to receive.
Realistic: Within reach and relevant to your purpose.
Timely: With a clear-cut timeline and target date.
Goals that have a higher chance of being accomplished should also answer the 5 “W” questions:
1. Who: Who is involved in the goal?
2. What: What are you looking to accomplish?
3. Where: Where is the goal to be achieved?
4. When: By when are you looking to achieve the goal?
5. Why: Why is this goal important?
When each goal is set with the answers to these questions and in a SMART goal manner, it gives you a better understanding on how to achieve your goal and uses your resources and capabilities in the best way possible.
So start writing down your goals for the new year with this method and be sure to hold yourself accountable for your resolutions because if you don’t work on your dreams, who will? ?
