Setting goals is the common practice for so many people at the start of a new year. I am no exception and you probably aren’t either. But goals often fall to the wayside because of procrastination, lack of self-confidence, and sometimes even negativity. 2018 is the year to be different—set goals and stay focused!

This may mean communicating about these goals with key players in your organization—teamwork! Carve out time on your calendar for planning and strategizing.
