We are now coming up towards the end of the first quarter of 2019 and it’s a great opportunity to review your goals that you set at the start of the year. Hopefully if you set realistic goals then you should be able to mark at least one of them as complete no matter how small it may seem but remember to focus on the long term goal.

If you haven’t yet read my blog about goal setting then I would encourage you to check it out here.
Going back to the the SMART principle there is now something to add which makes them SMARTER check out the below..
- Enjoy – Once you reach a goal it is important to enjoy the moment and the feeling of achievement which will help you to achieve further goals and keep you on track.
- Reward – This is where people generally go wrong and reward themselves with the things that put them further away from their goals in the first place such as overeating or drinking etc. Why not try something different as a reward such as a day out doing something fun or treating yourself to something that will help you achieve that next goal.
You will be amazed at how much momentum you get in this cycle once you get going on the treadmill of goal setting and achieving.
Keep reaching and challenging yourself!
