2021 will be here in the blink of an eye! If you haven’t started planning for the New Year, it’s time to start. As a goal accountability coach, I help my clients create action-based plans to help them reach their goals. So, I’m sharing some tips to help you do the same!
Be Prepared for Shifts
If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we must be prepared for things to go in a completely different direction than we planned. It’s likely to expect that in 2021, as well. While we can’t prepare for everything, we can put some things in place just in case.
For example, if one of your goals is to speak at 10 conferences in 2021, this may be a challenge with COVID-19 restrictions canceling in-person events. You could plan by looking at virtual speaking opportunities along with in-person. That way, you can still work towards your goal in case things change.
Start with a Large Goal
When you’re planning for an entire year, it can often help to start with a large goal and work your way down to the small tasks and actions it will take to reach the larger goal. Ask yourself these questions to determine your large goal for 2021:
- What’s one thing I must accomplish in 2021 that will take a large amount of planning? (ex. Write a Book, Lose 100 lbs, Start a Business)
- Why is this goal important to accomplish in 2021?
- What steps do you have to take each day, week, month to obtain that goal?
Once you have your large goal, you can start breaking out into smaller goals that you set to achieve per month or week. For example, if you want to lose 100 lbs in 2021, your monthly goal might be to lose 9lbs. Your weekly goal may be to work out 3 times. Your daily goal may be to eat a home cooked meal with fruits and vegetables 3 times a day.

A big shift you can make to help you plan, implement, and achieve your goals for 2021 is working with a goal accountability coach. With my clients, I track, support, and encourage you as you consistently find success. Think of me as your goal cheerleader and coach!
