This last week of the year is my planning week to reflect and set goals for the new year. And I love to read what people share on social media about their goals. There always seems to be a spirit of optimism and commitment that the upcoming year is going to be theirs for the taking. Hopefully for you it is the same!
But if there’s anything I’ve learned over many years of doing this is to make those goals realistic, and avoid the temptation to set too many or make them too lofty. As a speaker and consultant on advocacy I share that same advice with my clients and audiences. it can be very easy to say, “Okay…this is the year I really get engaged!”
And while that’s quite laudable, is it realistic? As with your other goals, keeping it simple and doable within your busy schedule may be just the formula you need to discover at the end of 2020 you have become or continue to be the successful advocate that’s making a difference in your community.
So here’s to 2020. May it be your best year yet!
