I’m two weeks into my new job which is full of new responsibilities and as much as I’m excited to be getting into my new role, I am also very overwhelmed. Yes, it’s only been two weeks but I already have a lot of work on my plate. Of course it’s going to take some time to get into this new work flow and no I’m not going to be able learn everything at the snap of a finger, but I feel this new position is going to take up most of my time. With that being said I have a list of goals I want to have accomplished by next year and I feel with this job some may need to be postponed.
The objective here is not to totally wipe out all my goals but to come up with a way to reach them in a manner that works with my new work life. I’ve come up with a list that may help me still be able to achieve my goals …
Evaluate each goal and rate them based on which goals will take the least & most time.
Take at least 2 days out of the week and work on one of my goals for at least 2 hours.
Break down my bigger goals into smaller goals.
I don’t know if postponing will necessary be bad but well definitely see. What do you think?
I am always writing down goals and trying to assess where I am going in my life. I do believe in this vision board stuff, but for me, I am more into vision goal assertions, which is why I am going to try and make a PowerPoint of my vision goals.
What will you be doing to? I want to know, so tell me in the comments.
I am not afraid to share what my goals for this year are because quite frankly, I have to say it out loud so it becomes more real.
Background: 2011, most goals were achieved. Two goals that I am the most proud of is that I got my Masters degree in December 2010, which is great news and a huge relief to me. And I also managed to sell third body advertising on vox-popPRcareers, which was my Masters course. So these were two goals I achieved so I am very happy about that, but I know I have to work much harder if I am going to make it.
New Years Resolutions do not work because they are seen as just that, being part of the NY and not the year itself. I see goals for your vision as being stuff you can stick to better.
This years goals [here we go]
Get 10,300 commissioned briefs from clients (So far, I have done 10 >> 10,290 to go)
Move back to the UK
Buy a 2007 Land Rover Defender 90 (Price: it ranges as a used car between £20K-£25K depending on miles
Build an emergency savings pot
Buy my first house/flat without a mortgage – just cash
These are very big goals, and I know they will be difficult to land, but where are we without goals? It’s January > I have got to be focused and get cracking!
I refuse to buy expensive designer handbags that I crave until I hit all of these 5 goals first.
