‘The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.’ – Michangelo

It is that time of the year again where we are all making New Year’s resolutions, setting goals, wishes, re-awakening but a lot of us would not follow through because we are obsessed with the goal but not with the process, we write the goals but we do not decide and commit to following through, we do not set up the systems and routine that would make the goals achievable.

A Goal is a dream with a deadline, to achieve your goals this year; you need to set SMART Goals. Ask yourself, are my goals Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time bound.
