The entire KidoZen team is back at work this week and I never seen this level of excitement. Obviously, we ended the year with a very good momentum and have super ambitious and really exciting plans for 2014. Like most people, I spent part of my holiday break reflecting about 2013 and setting the goals and plans for 2014.
During that time, I was super happy to discover that I hit over 85% of my 2013 goals, had some pleasant successes in areas I didn’t plan for and I still manage to do a decent job on the resolutions I didn’t accomplish. While 85% might not seem particularly impressive, my satisfaction comes from knowing that my 2013 goals were super ambitious. At the end, I believe that’s the only way to set goals.
From New Year resolutions to our monthly/weekly plans at KidoZen, I like to evaluate goals based on the following rule:
- Accomplishing Over 90% of the Goals: Probably our goals are not ambitious enough
- Accomplishing Between 75% to 90% of the Goals: We are doing well, let’s keep pushing to get close to 90%
- Accomplishing Under 75% of the Goals: We are doing something wrong, time to reassess.
As always, the key to accomplish goals is to stay really focused, iterate and adapt.
In terms of my New Years Resolution, I have some super ambitious goals both personally, for my family and I can’t not even tell you about some of the crazy goals we are trying to accomplish with KidoZen. It should be fun
