How to Successfully Achieve Goals

On Friday I mentioned that I had unearthed some old notebooks from the depths of my office closet, with the idea of making detailed shop and blog plans in them, as a visual map of what I want to do with both of those entities.  I figured if I could see where I needed to go and where I want to end up, broken down into smaller steps and with an outline on a calendar, I would be more likely to end up where I hoped.

Turns out that's exactly right.

Setting Goals Infographic


This graphic from Education Database Online basically proves that theory, that if you write down your goal or resolution and don't try to do it all at once, you are more likely to be successful.  Feel free to dig an old college notebook out of your closet to start you on your way.  Or maybe just buy a new one so you don't have to feel so old.

  1. I love that infographic. I've only been writing down goals for a copule of years, but so far it's absolutely made a difference.

    Love the new banner, by the way!

  2. I don't think I've ever written down new year's resolutions probably because I would hate to see them again if I couldn't maintain them. I've been thinking about doing a journal but I can't seem to keep up with one. I'll write down stuff for a few months and then it goes empty. I have a lot of half-filled journals.

  3. I am a sucker for an infographic! And this is the perfect one to look at when considering goals for the year ahead! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I couldn't agree more! Writing down your goals (and even sharing them with others) makes them that much more real. And gives you a place of reference when you need to take tabs on where you are. I shared my goals (and this graphic) on my blog as well :)
