I love setting goals and achieving them. But I really never post them on my blog. Since 2020 is around the corner, I wanted to share with you what goals I am planning to achieve in the next year.
Read along to find out!
I’ve never shared my yearly goals publicly before but I thought it would be fun to share my 2020 goals with you today. I think it’s a good way of keeping me going and trying to achieve all of them. I will do a recap at the end of next year to see how I did in another post. So, please follow along on my 2020 journey.

- Paying off all of my debt
- Going on a date with my husband at least twice a month

What Are Smart Goals
SMART Goals are goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-based. They are more detailed and specific to one thing, so that it is more apparent to what you want to do.
Having SMART goals allows you to have a better chance of achieving your goals. When you have a very generic goal of “Be more active,” you are not giving yourself a clear way to achieving your goal.
An example of a SMART goal would be, “I will go for a walk every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 30 minutes for the next three months.“
S: Specific: Go for a walk
M: Measurable: For 30 minutes
A: Achievable: Walk every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
R: Realistic: Go for a walk, not climb a mountain!
T: Time-Based: For the next three months.
Quick Tips to Achieve Your Goals
1. Write down your goals
Do you know that when you have your goals written down, you are much more likely to achieve your goals than only thinking about them.
There was interesting research conducted in 1979 on the Harvard Business School graduating class to assess how written and planned-for goals effect later outcomes in life.
The graduating class was asked a single question about their goals in life. The question was: Have you set written goals and created a plan for their attainment?
Prior to graduation, it was determined that:
- 84% of the entire class had set no goals at all
- 13% of the class had set written goals but had no concrete plans
- 3% of the class had both written goals and concrete plans
The results 10 years later were:
The 13% of the class that had set written goals but had not created plans, were making twice as much money as the 84% of the class that had set no goals at all.
However, the 3% of the class that had both written goals and a plan, were making ten times as much as the rest of the 97% of the class.
How interesting and fascinating, right?
2. Set a plan for each of your specific goals
By setting an action plan for each of your goals will make you be more specific on what action you will have to take to be able to accomplish your goals.
It acts as a road map to your success as it will show exact steps and ways to get to your goals.
You can always adjust them as you go.
By writing down your goals and putting them in a plan, you will be able to remind yourself and keep yourself going until you’ve achieved your goals.
