5 Goal-setting Tips from Biztech Lawyers to Get You Kick-Started for 2023

As we ride into 2023 (perhaps by now we’re even remembering to date our documents correctly?!), it is the perfect time to reflect on the past and set goals and aspirations. In this article, Biztech Lawyers set out our top 5 goal tips for setting and sticking to your 2023 goals.

1. Keep your goals S.M.A.R.T


Keep your goals specific. Complex goals are intimidating, but broken down into smaller and more specific actions, they become more manageable.


By setting simple, measurable goals (e.g. write 1 blog post per week!), you can track your progress. Tracking progress helps you to stay motivated and focused.


Goals must be realistic to be effective. Unrealistic expectations lead to disappointment and frustration, but if a goal feels achievable you’re more likely to stick to the program. 


Before you set goals, it’s important to understand your values and aspirations. Only then can you choose goals that will get you closer to your big picture end goal.


Deadlines help you to stay motivated and on track, and they can also provide a sense of urgency that helps you to complete tasks efficiently.

2. Set both short-term and long-term goals

Long term goals set you the overarching objective to strive towards, whereas short term goals are the little steps you take along the way. Setting specific short term goals helps maintain focus and motivation.

3. Reward yourself for small wins 

Rewarding yourself for small wins helps you stay committed – celebrating success in your short term goals can make all the difference in achieving your larger goals.

4. Learn from past performance – what worked and what didn’t

Success is seeing progress – and this will only come from measuring and tracking your performance. Reflecting back on past performance and gaining understanding of what worked and what didn’t will help you make better decisions about what goals to set, and how to reach them, in future.

5. Make your goals challenging, but also achievable – ‘stretch’ goals

Goals should be achievable, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be challenging. To strike the right balance, consider setting “stretch” goals that are slightly outside of your comfort zone, but still within the realm of possibility.

In short, set S.M.A.R.T. goals, track progress, reward yourself, learn from past performance, and challenge yourself for success in 2023. Start today and make the most out of the new year.
