Setting Professional and Personal Goals

Do you have your goals in place for 2020? What about the rest of the year? It’s important to define what you want to accomplish, whether it’s in your personal or professional life. Taking an objective look at where you want to be and how you want to get there is the best way to achieve something.

Write down your goals

If there are things you haven’t achieved yet, it might be because you haven’t written them down. Putting your goals down on paper might be the first physical step towards realising what you want to accomplish. Writing your goals down can be a cathartic experience, because this means that you have, at the very least, a general idea of where you want to be and what you want to do. Defining what you want to achieve is a huge step in this process because achievements can take on very abstract forms. Keep a list, no matter what the timeline is so that you can check things off as you accomplish them.

Find accountability

Accomplishing goals is hard to do on your own. Bring someone along with you on your journey! Finding an accountability partner is the best way to make sure you are achieving what you want. It’s not an easy process, but it can make a huge difference in your journey. A good accountability partner can support you along the way in your journey and provide some tough love when you get side-tracked. This relationship works best when you can talk to someone you trust and respect, which should allow for your partner to give you constructive criticism when you need it.

Celebrate the wins, recover from the losses

There’s nothing wrong with celebrating your victories when you achieve your goals. You should celebrate! It’s a big deal. No matter what you decide to celebrate with, acknowledge how you achieved your goal and what processes brought you here. We are all on our journey, and we all will experience varying degrees of failure and success. There will be times when things don’t work out. Whatever the reason might be, make sure that you are kind to yourself in these moments. Figure out what went wrong, fix it and move on to the next big goal. Whatever happens, keep growing and moving forward.


Mellissah Smith and Morgan Doyle of Marketing Eye went live on LinkedIn with Robert Fox of Strategy to Revenue to discuss how they assess their personal and professional goals, and how they go about achieving those. Take a look at their in-depth conversation below.

Positive psychology, like all good science, has evolved, becoming richer and more applicable as research uncovers what works to cultivate happiness. Our ancestors rubbed two sticks together to make fire, learning through experimentation, replication, and results how to reliably and consistently create warmth when needed. At first they guessed at how to make fire, just like today some of us guess how to make ourselves happy (which, ironically enough, sometimes makes us feel unhappy).  We have the science now to orient ourselves to happiness, and through the science of positive psychology we can use it to flourish, building a fire of positive emotions that support and nourish our wellbeing. 

The question, however that claws at most of us from time to time is how to maximise positive psychology?

Reflecton is a beautiful thing

I was 17 when I first started work, and through a fated role in an advertising agency, I met a group of young journalists and television presenters who have become my lifelong friends.

They worked in television, newspaper and radio in regional Queensland. It wasn't long before each one of them, had offers from bigger cities, because what they all had in common, was that they were incredible journalists. Today, we are all connected in one way or another, and I think it would be safe to say, that we are each as proud of the others achievements, as that of our own.

Did you make your millions?

Did you make your million? Or 2, or 3, or 4? It's May and it's time to work out whether your pockets are full of coins, or if there is a hole where they seem to have slipped through.

End of Financial Year is a reality check for all businesses. Did you do well this year? Could you have done better? Does your team need to be congratulated on their work and achievements? Who are your big spending clients?
