Talk up your goals — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
As you compose personal and professional goals for this year, don’t keep them all to yourself. First, write them down and include specific, measurable criteria so that you’ll know when you attain each of them. Then decide which goals are private and keep those to yourself. (Examples may include weight loss or resolving key aspects of a legal dispute.) For the remaining goals, make them known to your trusted friends and family. Tell them exactly what you want to achieve, and encourage them to support you in your efforts. “Assign” one goal to each friend so that person becomes your coach and monitors your progress.
