247: Ask Denis: Is It Too Late To Set Goals?

The new year is here but is it too late to set ourselves up for success now that we’re over the line? Before you go on to the episode, just breathe, relax, it’s all good. Yes, time is moving fast but, in this episode, I’m going to talk about how we can still set goals for the year. The ship hasn’t set sail, but the best time to is now!

No need to put it off any longer. Jump into the episode and let’s build some momentum and set up some goals.

On this episode:

  • I explain how it’s not too late, but that NOW is the time to set goals because you will be getting busy soon now that the year is just starting to ramp up again. 
  • There is a difference between New Year’s resolutions and setting goals. Resolutions are easily broken (if you don’t have the resolve) but goals call for real action. I remind us of the reflection questions and how to look forward through plan and action.

Key Takeaways:

  • Things will start getting busy, don’t put off setting goals
  • You need to start building momentum as early as possible
  • There is a difference between New Year’s resolutions and setting goals. 
  • Set 3 Big Hairy Audacious Goals (BHAGs)
  • Go ahead and set new goals once you finish one 
  • Plan AND action, just getting started can have a massive impact
