Questions to ask for reviewing 2012 from Brad Lomenick:
Make your goals S.M.A.R.T. from Michael Hyatt:
- Specific—your goals just identify exactly what you want to accomplish in as much specificity as you can muster.
- Measurable—as the old adage says, “you can’t manage what you can’t measure.”
- Actionable—every resolution should start with a verb (e.g., “quit,” “run,” “finish,” “eliminate,” etc.)
- Realistic—you have to be careful here. A good resolution should stretch you, but you have to add a dose of common sense.
- Time-bound—every resolution needs a date associated with it. When do you plan to deliver on that resolution. It could be by year-end (December 31) or it could be more near-term (March 31).
10 Point Inventory from Steve Cornell:
The following ten point inventory is meant for personal evaluation not for judging others. It could be used as a guide to help others but I suggest caution because lists and tests easily become legalistic tools that promote sinful pride when aimed at others.
Making Resolutions Is Good, But This Is Far Better from Stephen Altrogge
