As 2015 has come to an end and we eagerly begin our New Year, we begin to consider what it is that we wish to achieve in 2016.
The New Year is traditionally considered a time to set resolutions to better oneself in the year to come – for example, if you hit the gym, you’ll certainly notice it’s much more crowded in January!
We are big on setting personal and professional goals year-round that are attainable and measurable. There is no better feeling then the sense of satisfaction that follows when you hit a goal you had previously set! If you would like to set goals, be sure to first sit down, think it through, and write them out. Placing your goal in a spot where you’ll see it everyday helps you visualize your dream, and serves as a constant reminder – helping your everyday actions align with what it is you wish to achieve. Telling someone you trust and respect about your goal is a great way to hold yourself accountable.
The Dave Team has set a few team goals for 2016, and one of them is to knock down our handpicked reading list of professional and self-development books! A few of us have already read some of these titles, but they are worth the reread.
Here is our reading list for 2016:
The Leader Who Had No Title, by Robin Sharma – helping people from all walks of life achieve great things
How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie – a lesson on how to deal with people in all areas of life
Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill – successful living through 13 principles
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey – how to become a better, more effective person outlined through seven habits
The One Minute Manager, by Kenneth Blanchard – helping leaders grow their team’s productivity and job satisfaction
If you’re looking for a worthy goal for 2016, why don’t you join us with our reading list, or make your own?
Do you set goals or resolutions? We’d love to hear yours!
