How to Set Goals like a Boss

Updated: May 14, 2018

I am a huge fan of setting goals, in fact, I set new ones all the time. I’m a strong believer that January is not the only (or best) time to set goals. Goals should be set and achieved all the time.

Setting new years goals has become so cliché, but I still think it’s important to do. The beginning of a new year is a fresh start and a great time to decide to just go for it.

That way, this time next year you can pop open a bottle of Champaign and celebrate your accomplishments and that you were brave enough to go for it. In this post I hope to help you set goals that are relevant and truly meaningful to you so that you can slay 2018 and feel like you are the boss of your life, because YOU ARE!

First off, I wanted to share with you a method of setting goals that I used last year and will be using from now on because it makes this process so much simpler.

Theme your Year

Instead of making a bunch of unrelated goals, try choosing a theme for your goals this year. Your theme can be one word or a small phrase, but should be something that is very specific to you.

For example, last year I set some goals for my blog. My theme was “Growth”. All of my goals were focused on the growth of my blog, and when I would come across decisions that I would have to make, it was easy: will this help to grow my blog?
