Take the List of Tasks and pick your top priorities If you have a couple more or less than 5, that’s ok. Just be realistic about what you have the bandwidth to drive actively Revise the top 5 task into a set of goals or resolutions Be specific Outline what you are going to accomplish, in what time frame, and constitutes success, what are your mile markers Be Honest Don’t set goals that are unreasonable Only to commit to what you can do

TASK FROM LISTGOAL/RESOLUTION Lose Weight Communicate with Asia counterpart Run for at least 30min 3xweek and track my daily calories so that I lose 1-2 lbs a week and meet my goal of 10lbs by March Set-up bi-weekly 1:1’s, sign up for basic Chinese course at the CC next semester, summarize meetings with notes and keep correspondence
Evaluate your top 5 to make sure your goals align with the business imperatives If you are in a technical position, and your manager is non-technical, review with your technical mentor For your personal goals, talk with your spouse/parents/close-friend to help you evaluate whether these goals satisfy your personal/family values Keep them in the loop Provide support when you need it Are aware of the progress you are making Will be able to speak to your work and your accomplishments
Having a positive attitude about your resolutions will make the process fun and stress-free Be flexible Don’t get upset if you don’t meet every self-imposed deadline—the key is to be encouraged by the progress you’ve made thus far Give yourself buffer time Failure isn’t a bad thing The key to success is knowing you have to fail multiple times before reaching a goal Share what you are doing with co-workers, friends, and family Gain new perspectives Receive positive encouragement Accountability
