Realistic Goal Setting 2018: Not just a vision but with action

It’s November already before you knew it, its already Christmas and all your inaanaks are starting to greet you. (I wish they will greet me often, not only during this Christmas Season)

I am already working for 7 years from various companies and by this time, some companies started to have their planning for 2018. A plan for its clients, increasing market share, sales target, improving company’s operation and so on and so forth. A plan to make the company become better.

If your company has its planning stage, why don’t we plan ours too? This November is the best time to lay those goals you have in mind.

Here are the steps that I take note, I hope this will help both of us.

What do you need:

1. A notebook – If you always write in your journal, its best to write your goals right there so you can always see it.

2. A pen (s) – of course

3. Calculator

4. Your memory and dreams

5. Prayers

STEP 1: LIST DOWN ALL YOUR GOALS

1. When you write it down, make sure it is a MAGIC. Or in a more professional way, it is should be SMART.

I learned MAGIC Dreams through the Feast, they are giving a very cute Novena to Gods Love. Comment in the section below to know more.

MAGIC and SMART mean your goals should be…

M- Measurable

A- Ambitious

G- Godly

I- Imaginative

C- Complete

— — — — — –

S- Specific

M- Measurable

A- Attainable

R- Realistic

T- Time-bounded

But because we are planning for 2018, make your goals are realistic for a year. We can plan a long-term goal after.

2. Next is to break down your goals in every aspect of your life. We want our life to be balanced so we do not mess up other things important to us.

You may break it down like this

A. Spiritual Goals

B. Health Goals

C. Personal Development Goals

D. Family Goals

E. Personal Development Goals

F. Relationship Goals

G. Financial Goals

F. Travel Goals

You can categorize it as how you want it to appear.

STEP 2: PUT VALUE TO YOUR GOALS

If it’s applicable, put a monetary value on your goals.

For example for your health goals, you want to improve it so you will enroll in a Yoga Class. Put the amount of a yoga class

For Family Goals, let’s say you want to date them every month because you never do it to them before, add the estimated amount on dining expenses.

In Financial Goals, you can also indicate the amount of debt you have. Never neglect this one because it’s your responsibility to settle what you owe

For Relationship Goals, let’s say, you decided to have a girlfriend by 2018, you should be ready as well for flowers, gifts and date expenses. Write the amount as well.

Indicate the amount. Your mind will force to generate ideas for achieving it later on.

STEP 3 : COMPUTE

1. Compute the Total Amount of your Goal.

2. Add the Total Expenses You have for a Year

4. Multiply by 1.1 if you religiously giving 10% tithes.

3. Then multiply the total in 1.12 for the Taxes. This may vary per income, but you need to compute on this well. Because in this world, we cannot avoid death and tax.

See example below:

2018 GOALS – 500,000

2018 EXPENSES – 150,000

TOTAL – 650,000

TOTAL with 10% Tithes – 715,000

TOTAL with Tax- 800,800

Now your Target income for 2018 is 800,800

STEP 4: LIST DOWN ALL YOUR POSSIBLE SOURCES OF INCOME

a. Salary

b. 13th Month

c. Salary Increase

d. Commission and Incentives

Then compare it to your 2018 Target Income

STEP 5: WRITE ALL IDEAS YOU HAVE TO INCREASE YOUR SOURCES.

Be creative as possible. If you are committed to achieving your goals, you will surely find a way.

STEP 6: PRAY FOR YOUR GOALS DAILY.

Even though it seems impossible today, We never know what will happen tomorrow, next month or in next year. Remember what you are aiming for is all possible to God.

I started doing this last year, and this helps me to be more focus on my goals this year. To be honest, not all of what I have written happens. But, this helps me analyze what should I do next time to make it happen.
