I’m going to do my best to make this blog, short, sweet, and to the point. Why am I feeling like a short, sweet, and to the point blog is needed? Because 2018 is almost gone—hard to believe, right? And like you, I’m doing all I can to accomplish the goals I set out to do this year.
What’s on my mind right now: Planning out 2019 goals and getting to see everyone at the upcoming FSA Training Conference!
2019 Goals: Where Do YOU Want to Go?
Is it really almost 2019? If you haven’t started planning and setting goals for your financial aid and enrollment offices for 2019 (because shared goals #rock!), I would encourage you to check out my blog about creating a discipline of execution. The discipline of setting long and short-term goals is what I believe separates the average from the superstars.
“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there,” said Lewis Carroll. To set effective goals, you need to know where you—your office, your institution, your industry—want to go in 2019. “You’ve likely already taken time to think about what’s the most important thing you need to accomplish this coming year. With that in mind, set your goals and think about the daily, weekly, and monthly targets that need to be hit to ensure you accomplish that goal. Most importantly—don’t overcomplicate it. Keep it simple. Less is more when it comes to goal setting.
