3 tips to help you set goals

What are your goals for this year? 

I used to find it so hard to make new year's resolutions, I knew I just wouldn't stick to them. So I decided to set goals and habits instead. It's a work in progress, but here are three things that really helped me to figure out what my goals were - hope they help you too.

1. Make a list of your priorities
What's important to you this year? Is it your mental health, starting a new side-hustle, clearing up your finances? Writing these down in a notebook will help to clear the clutter in your mind, and allow you to see on paper where you'd like to focus your energy. Take 15 minutes aside to do this.

2. Turn them into goals and actions
Now turn those priorities into goals. Write them in the present tense to turn them into real-life goals that will manifest. For example, instead of writing "I want to earn £5,000" make it more specific and write "I earn £5,000 a month". Next step, take 30 minutes and think of three ways you will do this.

3. Monitor your progress
Add a date to your diary for the same time every month and check in with yourself. How are you doing? Are you on track to meet your goals? If not, what can you alter to help you get back on track? If you're on track - go celebrate your wins!
