What Are Your 2021 Goals?

Before we wrap up 2020, I want to thank you for reading The Shift every other week, for being open to learning new things and/or thinking about them differently. Writing a bi-weekly blog has been an experience, teaching me discipline and focus.

Next week, I’m meeting with my Executive Coach to share my personal and professional goals for 2021. Having an accountability partner and a deadline will make my goals more tangible and increase the likelihood of actually doing them!

As we turn the page on 2020, what are you thinking about for 2021?


Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.

Worth the Share

This short article from the website Thrive Global, highlights the importance of setting goals and making sure they are measurable. While the article doesn’t include this common acronym, I live by it. Goals should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-bound. Read on to learn a bit more about the Power of Goal Setting. Read on.

And Finally...

Maybe take some time over the next couple of weeks to write your goals for 2021. Maybe start a daily practice of journaling? I journal daily because it sets me up to have a great, intentional day.​ Since I so believe in the power of gratitude, I make sure to include a few things I’m grateful for too. Today I’m grateful for you. Enjoy the end of year break with friends and family – in person or via zoom. Wishing you all the best for the year ahead! Mary Jo
