The first step to goal setting is to assess where you are. What are you most proud of this past year both personally and professionally? Did you take on any additional responsibility this year? How did you take initiative in your job? Have you learned any new skills? Did you earn any certifications or licenses? Did you receive any awards or recognition this year? Based on this information, look at opportunities for improvement in the upcoming year and set 2-3 goals you want to tackle. Use the S.M.A.R.T. goal system to articulate your goals. S.M.A.R.T stands for: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Oriented.
