Did you set goals at the beginning of the year or did you create any New Year’s resolutions?

Have you gotten off track on your New Year’s goals or completely forgotten what you set out to do this year? Many people set goals at the beginning of a new year but oftentimes, we struggle to stay on track.

Back on Overcoming Distractions is Sarah Reiff-Hekking, Ph.D. founder of True Focus Coaching.

Sarah and Dave first discuss whether the new year is really the best time to set goals. Hint, maybe not.

Sarah suggests reframing goals and calling them either a target or a vision and even the label ghost targets and visions to better resonate with yourself.

Sarah Reiff-Hekking, Ph.D. of True Focus CoachingSarah says it’s important to find what works when it comes to reminding yourself of your goals. That can include vision boards, all types of visual reminders and regular reminders to keep you on track.

Sarah also reinforces something she has talked about before on the podcast which is making sure your personal goals come before your career goals.

Sarah gives advice for ways you can continue to keep steering toward your targets and goals. She also says it is important to create authentic goals and those that are intrinsic.

Goals should be about you not what other people think you should be doing. You should also make sure that this is a meaningful goal or something you are just chasing.

And Sarah suggests making sure you go through goal setting and ways to stay on track in a nonjudgmental way.
