Setting Goals for the New Year - by Ana Kirmani




Setting goals may probably be one of the hardest when starting a new chapter, task or personal endeavour. Which is why Ability online will be having a speciality chat on Monday, January 28 with Jacob Madeiros and Michelle McClure on Goal setting in the young adult chat room from 7 to 8 pm. This will give all the opportunity to set and brainstorm goals to start off the new year. 

Goals can be underestimated and passed off quite quickly as something not important or distracting you from the task. However, this is not the case; a goal is the first step in planning your journey. It allows one to focus, measure progress, be motivated as well as overcome procrastination. When you take on projects step by step it eliminates the anxiety and stress of the situation, which makes one focus on the smaller pieces that make up the bigger picture. For some coming up with a goal can be as easy as being more organized. but to others who may not have any goals for 2019, this chat will help you; as others will be brainstorming, discussing strategies, and sharing what they want to achieve in the new year. 

Now you might be wondering; why is it so important to create goals? The short answer is getting things done. You finish one task and move on to the next without giving it a second thought. In a sense, you become self-reliant and stronger. The long answer is that it is a way to take control of your life and be the person you aspire to be through progress, self-building and motivation. Finding a greater purpose as one may say or even the pursuit of happiness. Once you get into the habit of tackling and finishing tasks the more progress you will see a change in your attitude along with approach and the more motivated you will become. 


For those who participate in the Monday evening social time, do not be worried we will still be having that chat room open from 8 to 9 pm after the event. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions in this forum and we are looking forward to connecting with all of you on January 28th.
