September is the new January.
At least when it comes to setting goals.
When January 1st hits, many of us make New Year’s resolutions in hopes to eat better, live healthier, do more, be more productive, etc. As most of us can attest to, by March 1st, we’re nowhere near on track to keep our resolutions. With the cold weather, shorter hours of sunlight, hopes of vacations and dreams of spring & summer, we often get distracted from our goals.
However, after summer winds down and fall begins, it seems like everyone gets a chance to wipe the slate clean and start fresh. Routines become common place once again and it’s easier to focus with the pull of summer days behind us. As a result, it’s a great time to revisit or even set new goals. With a quarter of the year left, it’s also easy to see the results of short-term goals before the New Year.
Remember to make your goals SMART. Specific; Measurable; Attainable; Relevant and Time Based.
