Goal SettingThis week sees children returning to school to start a new academic year. Their teachers will be planning and setting them goals for the coming year in order to cover the requirements of the curriculum.

Why not make September a natural marker for yourself?  Pause for a moment and ask yourself what it is that you wish to achieve in the coming  months?  It can be very helpful to break down your goals, both personal and professional, into more achievable bite-size pieces, similar to the way a teacher breaks down the academic year into monthly, weekly and daily goals.  If our goals seem to be overwhelming we will often put them off.  Look at whatever it is that you want to achieve and plan out your own “curriculum” with targets and realistic timelines.
