NEW YEAR GOALS


The other day when I browsed the morning headlines in the newspaper, one piece of news caught my eye.    It suggested some mobile app to accomplish New Year Resolutions.   I  laughed myself the way technology is suggested to strengthen the   inner resolve.  

We are already having superior technology inside each of us  which converts the 'bread into blood'.   What we need is only  to have full heart to achieve our goals.

I don't think you need a mobile app to achieve your goals,   What I suggest   is,  invest some bucks in  purchase of  small whiteboard and hang it into your study/ living room and write your goals there with a deadline.  See the board as frequently as possible during the day which would strengthen your resolve and auto-suggest your mind  to work towards the goals.

I think this whiteboard is the most workable formula. Don't clutter that board with lengthy resolutions.  Write each goal/resolution in two or three words with  a timeline.  Don't write more than 5 Resolutions.  Why 'Five', because you have five fingers so that you can instantly remember them when you are out of board's sight.   Seeing the white board  daily  would train your mind in accepting them for accomplishment. 

Split each goal/resolution into workable actions with clear deadlines and when you achieve even a small part of that goal, announce to the world or your near and dear ones  about your achievement so that their words of appreciation ignite you further in  achieving your leftover goals.

Further, you take a snapshot of your goals written on the whiteboard with your mobile phone and review it  frequently  even during 'on-the-go.

Some months back, I opened a notebook  called "Black Book'  in which I elaborately wrote  what are my strengths and weaknesses and what are my goals to be achieved.  The following is a rundown of my Goals: 

1) Physical Fitness Goals - Healthy life
2) Intellectual Goals - Utilize all my Inner Resources/ talents the Creator
    has endowed me
3) Children Career Goals - Make them worthy of society
4) Financial Goals - Wealth at a comfortable level
5) Relationship/ Family /Welfare Goals - Good Samaritan

Under each primary goal, there are sub-goals which must be diligently written in a notebook meant for your goals and you need to give timeline for each sub-goal. Some action under all five categories need to be taken on  daily basis and it should be reviewed daily/weekly/fortnightly.
