How to Rate Your End of Year Goals

How to Rate Your End of Year Goals

Talking about goals in the last month of the year is unique.

Many people are approaching demanding deadlines. Many others have long abandoned their goals. So this is the perfect moment for the last review before starting over.

Also, the Christmas magic, or the deadlines approaching, force you to give everything you have left to reach your goals. Therefore, recollect everything inch of motivation, and let’s make this last push together.

Then, rate your goals to understand what went well or wrong and how to improve for the following year. And we will see how here below.

The Good and The Bad

The Good and The Bad

Take a piece of paper or the infographic here, and answer the following questions:

For example, a good rating session would be every 12 weeks, as in the 12 Week Year by Brian Moran. And the goal of a rating session is not to rate how much you achieved but how much you learned. So you will start with a good versus bad list.

  • What helped you become more productive? And what didn’t?
  • What keeps you from procrastinating? And what triggered procrastination instead?
  • In which periods of the day/week did your work better? And in which did you work worse?

<p>When you have a list of the...

When you have a list of the good and bad things you did last year, you understand how to improve your efficiency for the following. It would be enough to follow the things that went well, or anything similar, and avoid those that troubled you.

But the list only contains the behaviors that helped you achieve or miss a goal. It doesn’t include information about its doability. And if one of your plans wasn’t doable, you should not rank it low if you haven’t achieved it.

The opposite is also true.

Examples of Goals

Examples of Goals

Suppose you had two goals:

  • Run 10km a day until the end of the year.
  • Write 200 words every day for a year.

These goals follow the SMART rules because they are Simple, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. But some factors may influence their end-of-year ranking.

  • You will not achieve your goals if you hurt your foot by running too much. But you may have reached good statistics before the injury.
  • On the contrary, if you wrote 200 words every day, but the goal wasn’t challenging, don’t rank it high. You need to set better standards.
