Setting Smart Goals

And Being Authentic

The library is open and this year the only thing I’ve been reading is myself. Recently, I came across this post from one of my favorite drag queens who is always so authentic.

Funny, right!? I just love her! I always try to live authentically and decided that I never want to fall into the above category. I want to have fun with social media and just be me. This year I decided to refrain from any “resolution” and set goals instead.

Goal Setting

I’ve come to believe that there are 4 steps to goal setting and I'll share them with you keeping the context above as topic.

1. Set goals that move you in some way. Why do we want it?

In my case I want to let people into my life, get personal perse. Let people in on the highlights and the lowlights (pun intended). Life is not always pretty and any statement I make online will be something I live by. I feel like I can truly be myself this way and that removes a great deal of stress off social posting and allows me to have fun with it.

2. Set it in writing

Keep it specific, attainable, and timebound. Post it somewhere you will see it, here seems like a good place for me, lol.

This year I plan to let people into my life more, to show them that life is not all glam, that it’s okay and fun to be yourself.

3. Create a action plan

This is super necessary especially if your goal is a big one.

My action list:
  • Every post I make will will let people into a piece of my life good, bad or indifferent.
  • Every caption will include engagement, I want to bring you into the conversation.
  • Every upload will include my true authentic voice.


4. Reaching Goals-Keep at it!

Build reminders and check ins to ensure you are still on track. Also have a end review to determine how well you did and if you need to reassess or keep at it a little more.

Bottom line 

We must do more than just state a goal we have to include why we wanted it in the first place. Then create a plan to set it in motion and monitor our progress. By following these simple steps we can accomplish what we set out to do and get all the feel goods that come along with it.

What goals will you set this year?
