With the new year rapidly approaching, most of us will be making resolutions to improve our lives. I know I am. I just came across an cool new app for Facebook called Goal Post that is designed to help you set personal goals, chart your progress and enlisted "accountability buddies" to help keep you on track.
You Say You Want a Resolution
The app was developed by Keith Ferrazi, the openly gay consultant, writer and business executive.
To be a successful goal-getter, you must first define your goal. It will likely fall into one of the seven aspects of what I call our personal success wheel: health & wellness, spirituality, job & career, intellectual & cultural, financial, deep relationships and giving back. Your goal must be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-Bound.
But you can't do it alone. This is the key to success where in the past you may have slipped! Choose three friends to serve as your accountability buddies. Knowing they are watching you will help you to stick to and reach your goals. I like to call it peer-to-peer pressure. They can cheer you on, send you inspirational songs and helpful website links, whatever it takes. I'm doing this with my sister and a few friends already.
But then you should also rally your friends to make improvements in their own lives. Don't leave them in your dust - bring them along with your success.

Feel free to share any goals that you have set for yourself in the comments section.
