Are you on track to meet your 2023 goals? The first quarter of the year is the perfect time to look back and readjust. These tips will work whether you are setting personal, team, or company-wide goals. Let’s dive into how you can make the next nine months of the year the most successful and how PSU can help.
Tips for Setting Goals
All goals are not created equal. In order to set a successful goal it should have five elements: SMART. Goals should be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. Run each goal through this filter. For example, maybe you have a general goal of wanting to drink more water. A SMART goal sounds like this: you want to increase your water intake to 64 ounces every weekday by the end of the month. This takes the abstract and makes it concrete. Additionally, it can be measured and has a deadline–the end of the month. The more you can break your goals down into actionable, achievable steps, the more likely you are to succeed.
Why the First Quarter is the Best Time to Review Goals
By the time you hit March, you are already starting to see what’s working and what’s not. Maybe a goal sounded realistic in January, but you’ve realized you need some help getting there. Remember, goals work for you. You can adjust at any time. If you are setting goals for a team, it’s important to ask for feedback. You know what the busiest seasons are for your company. Plan the goals for the year around that. You can break them down into 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month goals. Reviewing them each quarter allows you to reevaluate what’s urgent, what’s important, and what’s still relevant.
