173: Setting Goals and Intentions in 2020

This is a very exciting time of year, a great time to evaluate 2019 and look ahead to what you want to achieve in 2020. In this episode, the first episode of the new decade, we talk about our goals and intentions for the year ahead. This has become a tradition for us on the podcast, at the start of every year we reflect on our goals and look forward to what we want to achieve next.

key takeaways

With each year, your goals might change. Consider choosing a theme or intention for the year, like ‘balance’, and break the theme down into individual goals.  Ask yourself if each goal is bringing you closer to fulfilling your intention.

Trial and error is key when setting goals and figuring out how to achieve them. Reflect on what you have tried in 2019, and the years previous. When you know what worked, and what didn’t work, you can put a plan in place to achieve your goals.

Think about your goals, break them down. Is there a way that you can simplify the steps you will take to achieve them. Can you foresee any roadblocks that might stop you along the way. How can you overcome these challenges before they become a reality? Making asking for help or delegating your least favourite part of the task will free up your time so that you can achieve your goals.

When you reflect on your goals from last year, be kind to yourself. Perhaps you weren’t able to fulfil each one, but did you get part of the way? Major life events, like moving to another country, might have slowed your progress but acknowledging what you have achieved despite the challenges will help fuel you to carry on.
