33 Goal Ideas for a Successful 2021
We’re turning the page, finishing the chapter, closing the book on the year 2020. Most people would agree that it’s good riddance to bad rubbish. As we look ahead to 2021, do you have goals in mind?
I’ll admit I’m not a goal-setter. I’m more of a go-with-the-flow type of person. Setting goals is equal to setting myself up for failure because I just don’t go about it the right way. The number one rule of thumb is that goals must be SMART.
SETTING S.M.A.R.T. GOALS:
- Specific, clear, and well defined
- Attainable and realistic
- Relevant to your lifelong goals
- Timebound/have deadlines
Generally, when people brainstorm for goal-setting ideas, they look at six broad categories: career, relationships, financial, health, spiritual, and educational.
According to Coaching Online here are some ideas and examples of goals you can set for 2021.
