Thanks to Eastern Michigan University’s Public Relations Student Society of America we have another great blog topic.  Here goes:

New year means new goals. New year resolutions are great if you are able to execute them by the end of the year. Having goals is a great start but actually working to accomplishing the goals is greater.The beginning of the year is a perfect time to create a list of goals for the year. Your list of goals should include all areas of your life, academic, career, relationships and personal.

10 questions to answer while creating your 2015 goals

  1. Is the goal attainable? Can you accomplish the goal before Dec. 31, 2015?
  2. What areas or things do you need improvement in?
  3. What new activities or things have you been interested in trying?
  4. What projects are you currently working on but want to do more with?
  5. What projects have you been meaning to do but have yet to make time?
  6. What qualities in yourself would you like to obtain or improve in?
  7. What relationships or friendships do you want to repair or strengthen?
  8. What could you improve to help you raise your G.P.A. and do better academically?
  9. What can you do to make you a competitive candidate for the job promotion that you have been eyeing?
  10. What goals from 2014 weren’t accomplished that still needs to be?

Answering these questions will help steer you in the right direction while deciding on your 2015 goals. Keep in mind you should be committed to actually accomplishing these goals by year’s end. Don’t just set goals to have some. A good place to keep these goals are in note app in your phone or notebook that is with you most of the time.
