Happy New Year 2011 – Professor M.S. Rao, Founder, MSR Leadership Consultants, India

"A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.'' - Oscar Wilde

Dear friends,

Welcome to the New Year 2011. I wish you a very happy, exciting and prosperous new year. As the New Year 2011 is very close it is time to stock of the situation. It is time to check whether we have achieved the resolutions that we had set in the last year. If you have achieved partly, it is fair enough. If you have not achieved even partly, it is time to find out the reasons for not accomplishing. If you fail to achieve due to external forces and factors, there is nothing to worry about as they are beyond human control. If you have not achieved due to internal reasons it is time to take feedback, analyze the reasons and take the remedial action. In this context, let us find out the advantages of setting goals. Goals help you stay focused. Goals help you manage your time effectively. Goals help you remove negative thoughts and fill with positive thoughts. Goals help you create hope and enhance longevity. Above all, goals make your life more meaningful.

Follow the below steps to accomplish your goals successfully:
• Set specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time bound (SMART) goals.
• Ink your goals. People usually think about goals. A study of a Yale University students showed that the students who had inked their goals accomplished their goals than the ones who had not inked. Putting goals in writing works. Besides, a short pencil is always better than a long memory.
• Read your goals twice a day; once in the early morning and before going to the bed. It helps the goals sink deeply into your subconscious mind and serves you as a constant reminder throughout. Whenever you go out of the track, your subconscious keeps you on the right track and on the fast track thus aligning your towards your goals.

If setting goals is one side of the coin, execution is the other side of the coin. You need to put constant efforts and energies to accomplish your goals. In addition, there is cut-throat competition. Therefore, you need to work harder, smarter and wiser to accomplish your goals.

Wishing you good luck.
