Happy Holidays, Remote Work Tribe! We’re back with one final Weekly Roundup of 2020—and can you believe it’s our last of the year already? 2020 has simultaneously felt both excruciatingly long and mind-blowingly short. But one thing is for sure: we’ve been so glad to have had you on board with us this year! We hope you’ll stay tuned for our latest adventure, which is goal setting in 2021! 🎉
After such an uncertain few months, it’s understandable to have mixed feelings about setting goals for the New Year.
Growth marketer Mindy Thomas raised a good question: should you aim for specific or generalized goal setting in 2021?
The two main things I'm keeping in mind moving into the new year are allowing myself grace and flexibility with my timeline and that progress is better than perfection— Alexis Rogers (@alexismrogers) December 28, 2020
I didn’t mean to but I kind of started setting them unintentionally. I have several specific ones to more or less guide my priorities and then 3 overarching ones including “Make self-care my first priority” & “Invest time and energy in the land and garden”— Taylor, "social media person" (@marketingwitch) December 28, 2020
Some noted that this year has been hard to predict, so one must use caution when goal setting in 2021…
Doing it, with a healthy dose of caution. Specific goals for things that are less pandemic-dependent (like writing X times a month), more flexible goals for everything else (like anything in-person)— Anya Bali (@anya_bali) December 28, 2020
…While others are plugging ahead with specific projects in mind and the tools to help them get there.
Kinda in between. Have 3 projects I really wanna launch. Documenting every hour of every day on Google cal to limit how much numb time I spend.— Jack Appleby (@JuiceboxCA) December 28, 2020
How will you be goal setting in 2021? Are you opting for more “umbrella” type goals, or drilling down specific objectives for the New Year?
