How to Attain Your Goals For This Year Strategically and Smartly

Well, it is New Year 2013 already but have you planned what do you want to do in this year? May be you haven't or may be you have.
So, if you haven't as yet started streaming down your priorities then get started now. Let us understand what should be your topmost priorities.
Before we begin, think about the past year and your achievements. If you are an online business owner or a home business owner then you should make list of all the profits and losses made last year. This will help you get the idea of your requirements this year.
First you must list the goals that you have attained and those which you would like to see getting fulfilled this year.

Financial Goals:
How would you like to see your finances this year? Have you made any plans of making investments? If yes, then what type of investments do you think will be most beneficial? Are you planning to expand your business to boost income? How much percent boost are you expecting in your monthly income? You must enlist all these things and make a strategic plan for getting most out of this year. As a home business owner, it is essential for you to notice the most profitable ways to earn money. Make list of the all those businesses that helped you reap maximum benefits last year. Then you can go geographic, meaning try to shortlist clients from those countries that gave you most money. You can target such clients this year.


Now, to enlist the losses that occurred in the previous years. How much did you spend on your household expenses? How much did you spend on enjoyment? What were the other expenses? Did your expenses surpass your earning in any time of year? For example, you must have made decent amount of money but since, you were expanding a lot of it could have gone in buying office accessories, maintenance and for other reasons. At other times, may be your entire earnings have gone for somebody's hospital expenses. Make a note of all such expenses that occurred last year. This year you need to be prepared for any such events or any types of expenses. Budgeting should be a top priority.

Analyzing the exact percentage of income boost that occurred last year will give you a detailed idea of this year's income boost. For example, if your income last year doubled the income earned in the previous year then you must note that there was one hundred percent rise in your income. This implies that your income has a great potential of rising, therefore, you must shortlist your best source of income for the previous year. Your goal for this year should be growing your income by 200 percent.
You must then analyze your secondary sources of income. Which were the sources that provided assistance to your main source of income? Enlist them and analyze how you can put them to maximum use this year.

Emotional Goals:

Did you miss your loved ones in 2012? Did you miss hanging out with your best friends? Did you miss spending time with your family? If yes, then this year you have to fulfill your emotional goals. You may have thought of going on a family vacation but it may not have been possible for you last year. It is true that most people work tirelessly because they want to "buy happiness" for their loved ones. However, it is also true that your loved ones are really happy when you are sitting next to them watching a family movie. It is needless to say that you miss those moments as well. So, how can you get them back without losing momentum? Well, you need to plan this carefully this year. Are there any other priorities like marriage, taking care of your kids or grandparents? If yes, then you need to figure out which ones come first. Let this not be a decision from the heart, calculate the consequence for prioritizing a particular goal. Then organize your choices.

Career Goals:
What have you planned for this year? Are you ready for the next level? Do you think it is possible to get to that level this year? Is there any sub-ordinate career that you want to venture into? Is there any unfulfilled dream that you see fructifying this year? What exactly do you want from your life this year? Are you looking forward to start new businesses? If yes, is your answer to all these questions then you must rate the success attained last year. If you think that you scored well professionally then you can go for the next level this year. Of course, you can decide the level depending upon the "rate of success" attained in the previous year.

 If the rate is above average then you can set high level goals this year. If you have a dream to fulfill then see whether you are perfectly prepared to make it a reality. Always check the necessary ingredients before you start making the recipe. At the end of it, you must meditate for sometime so that you can get tuned with your soul. Your soul will tell you exactly what you want from life this year.

I have some interesting goals myself. In order to achieve them, I need to do careful planning. Otherwise, I won't be able to fulfill them. However, I found a key to get the desired success in 2013.
