Gaur Gopal Das: Setting a goal that is just unrealistic given one’s circumstances is a common mistake. The desire to set a goal, especially for New Year resolution encourages individuals to consider the big picture and recognise that each individual has a starting point for what is safe, comfortable, and realistic.
After establishing goals, many people give up or simply stop after only a few short weeks. Setting oneself up for success requires accountability. We bring you five realistic ways of setting your life goals to stay focused this year.
