Goal Check! 4 Easy Steps to Complete Your Goals for the Year–Even if You Haven’t Started Yet

The year is two-thirds of the way over, and I haven’t even thought about my resolutions for the year since I set them. But, you know what? That’s okay. There’s still plenty of time. Here are four easy steps to help you use these last few months to complete your goals for the year.

1. Remember Your Goals?

things to do todayDo you remember the goals that you set for yourself at the beginning of the year? No? Me neither. That’s because I didn’t write them down.

Frequently, what you feel so passionately about in January is a distant memory in September. This is why it’s so important to make note of your goals. Write them down in a memorable place, and look at them regularly to help motivate you to stay on track with your accomplishments.

Whether you remember your resolutions from January or are creating new goals right now, take a moment to think. Make sure that you really and truly want to achieve these current goals. If you’re not passionate about them, choose something else that you are passionate about.

Once you know what you want to do with the rest of this year, write it down somewhere very visible.

2. Keep Your Goals Visible.

You’re working with a reduced amount of time now. Instead of having all 12 months to achieve your goals, you only have four. To ensure that you get everything accomplished that you want, you need to make sure that you stay on task everyday.

When you’re in a time crunch, each day counts. Write out your goals and keep them in a very noticeable, quite visible place. This step is important to keeping you on track for the rest of the year.

3. Take Action–Now!

Immediately after you write down your goals, do something! Now is the time to take action.

Realization of your goals is a multi-step process. Each goal you have will require several steps until completion. Breaking a large task into smaller, more manageable sections is a great way to encourage accomplishment. However, it can also accidentally sabotage you.

Sometimes, small tasks don’t quite feel substantial enough to address at the present moment. Large tasks can feel so challenging and time consuming that they don’t get started either. This is just your brain’s way of justifying procrastination. (Trust me. I’m an excellent procrastinator.)

The trick is to just get started. Do whatever you perceive the first step is to accomplishing your goals. No matter whether these are large tasks or small ones, take the time out of your day and invest in yourself.

4. Repeat Steps 1-3.

Every morning when you get up, remember your goals. Read them and remember why you chose them. Reignite your passion and determination to achieve them. Then, do something about it.

Take action to work toward accomplishing your resolutions. Don’t trick yourself into procrastinating and deciding to take action later. Do something now. Remember, whether you choose to do something big or small, any portion of completion leads you down the road to accomplishing your goals. Just stick with it and, over time, you can complete your goals!
