Hello and welcome to The Old Summers Home. Are you prepared to achieve your goals in 2020? Do you need help setting goals and following through? Are you struggling with Goal Overload? If so, you have come to the right place, today we are going to show you how to conquer your goals in 2020 with easy to implement actions that set you up for success!
The New Year is here and with that comes resolutions and goals. I don’t know about you but I get so excited and pumped up with a new beginning. It’s a new opportunity to get out there and kick some ass!
How about you? Are you a goal setter? Do you achieve your goals or do you peter out? I, like many people, have set the bar too high in the past, I have lost focus and squandered at a bottomless pit of hopes and dreams.
Now it is time to make a comeback, and to help each other succeed! I have been learning and mastering the key elements to achieving my goals. I’ve learnt what does and doesn’t work. I have found ways to motivate myself and to help others to get us all back in the game.
Today we are going to take a look at how to conquer your goals successfully with these easy to implement actions!
Don’t set yourself & your Goals up for failure!
One of the biggest mistakes people make when setting a new year’s resolution is by going all in and producing a massive goal they hope to achieve without any sort of actionable steps to get there.
Woah slow down and take a step back!
It’s amazing that you want to push yourself extra hard and aim for the stars but if you start with smaller goals you are way more likely to achieve and succeed. Don’t worry those smaller goals are going to get you to your end-goal!
Success is more attainable by completing smaller goals that eventually lead to your # 1 goal!
Rather than saying my New Years Resolution this year is to get healthy and lose weight, take a step back. Start with one attainable step at a time. Our bodies are a creature of habit and our brains are formulated to crave those unhealthy foods we have grown to love. We need to build ourselves up through smaller goals to reach that big end game!
Knock off small goals to build your way to the end goal!
Find an Accountability Partner to help you Conquer your Goals!!!
This is probably the most important way to help you achieve your goals, and I’m not just talking New Years Resolutions here. I’m talking about all the goals, I’m talking about making your dreams come true! I’m talking about finding others just like you! Your people, your person!
I achieve way more when I’m able to share my successes with other people who are going through the same thing.
For example, most of my friends don’t really care that I spent 20 hours working on a post that has a mail form, automation with a freebie, awesome new graphics, the right backlinks, monetization possibilities etc…
Are you still with me?!?
No? That’s ok! Neither was my husband. I love Josh to bits and pieces but he sure as hell has no idea what I’m talking about when it comes to blogging.
BUT…. my accountability peeps sure the hell do! Those are my people! The ones with the same goals, the same niche of aspirations! The same dreams they want to come true! They get it because they are in it too!

Get Your Goals on Paper!
This really should be everyone’s first step to achieving their goal! Get it on paper, digital copy, notebook, whatever, but write down your goals! I cannot emphasize this enough! WRITE THEM DOWN!
Put It On Paper! Make Actionable Steps & Succeed!
When you write down your goals you are almost 50% more likely to achieve those goals! Now, I don’t just mean grabbing a paper and jotting down your new goal. No, I mean actually writing down actionable steps to achieve this goal in its entirety. Well thought out constructive steps that are going to help you sail your way to achievement!
Having a goal in your mind is just that, it’s in your mind. The first step to making it a reality is making it a physical reality by giving it substance in your writing. Gaining clarity through your words is easiest when its right there in front of you. Be sure to share your written goals with your accountability partners!
My new Workbook, My Goals for 2020, is the perfect way to get you on to your road to success! It is filled with 15 pages to make your actionable steps as easy as possible! You can conquer your goals in no time!
Personally I love to write down new ‘goals’ every single day on a little to-do list. One day a week I also write down on the goals I hope to achieve and every month I write down the goals for the next month. Having these on paper gives me the satisfaction of checking them off as I go. I love this method so much that I decided I needed to share it with you too!
The feeling of achieving these small tasks gives you the confidence to keep going and moving towards your end goal!

Listen to a Kickass Podcast!
Now, I can’t lie, until recently I had never even listened to a podcast. Yep, I live under a freaking rock haha. Since I finally replaced my iPhone I started to make use of the preloaded podcast app. And Holy Hannah, what an incredible world I have been missing!
I’m totally hooked on Jenna Kutcher’s Goal Digger podcast right now. I love listening to it for inspiration while I’m putting my hours into the blog every morning. It reminds me that you can achieve anything if you just put your mind to it and of course, work your ass off!
Whatever mojo you need for whatever goal you have there is bound to be a kickass podcast out there waiting for you!
I’m also a huge fan of Her Paper Route! Her podcasts feature a lot of bloggers and entrepreneurs I have met in the online community and it is so awesome to get to know them better. These are real people who achieved their goals and share their best strategies with the real world! I’m a firm believer in we build ourselves up building up others!
Think S.M.A.R.T to Successfully Conquer Your Goals!
Remembering the 5 key acronyms for SMART is a great way to keep yourself on track with setting and achieving your goals. This is one of the most successful ways to attain your goals.
Be Specific, Clear & Concise About Your Goals
You need to be specific in choosing your goals. If it is a huge goal you need to break it down into smaller tasks (I like to call these mini-goals). Who benefits from this goal? What do you hope to achieve at the end of this goal?
Ensure to Set Measurable Boundaries
The goal needs to be measurable. You need to know how much, how many or some measurable way to indicate that you achieved one of your goals.
Set Achievable Goals
Whatever goal you choose you must remember that your goals need to be achievable! Do you have the ability to attain this goal? What will you need to make sure you succeed? Accountability partners are great for helping you brainstorm ways to make your goals achievable!
Be Realistic When Setting Goals
Are your goals realistic (relevant)? You need to make sure that you are setting yourself up for a goal that you can achieve. That doesn’t mean that you can’t aim for the moon, it just means you might fall among the stars if you’re not realistic. If you ask me that is still an amazing feat! By breaking down those huge goals into smaller realistic ones though, we can work far better towards achieving those dreams!
Goals Must Be Time-Bound
Your goals need to be timely, they need to have a start date and they need to have an end date. Ensure that you leave enough time to prepare to start your goals. You should start to work out your goals and the steps leading to its success prior to your start date. Your goals end date should provide enough time to successfully achieve your expectations.
One of my favourite points in the accompanying post to this video is that you should not set goals that you have no power over. Don’t set yourself up for failure by setting goals that you have no control over the outcome!
Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant & Timely
Beware setting goals that someone else has power over. For example, “Get that promotion!” depends on who else applies, and on the recruiter’s decision. But “Get the experience and training that I need to be considered for that promotion” is entirely down to you.mindtools.com
Find Motivation In Your Surroundings!
First off, you need to start with a clean slate. Reduce clutter whether it be in your mind, in your home, or on your digital devices. By reducing clutter and getting organized we reduce distractions and increase productivity.
Get Organized with One of the Best Planners of 2020!
There is nothing that drives me crazier than when I’m on a roll and whipping up a new post but my camera roll is full or my computer is overloaded with downloads I have yet to delete.
If the house is a mess you can bet you will lose focus and struggle to achieve your daily tasks towards your end goal. Reducing clutter in your home and work area will help keep your brain from trailing off on the work that needs to be done that has nothing to do with obtaining your goals. You can check out our Spring Cleaning post to find some inspiration!
Add motivational quotes into your home decor. It can be as simple as a coffee mug or extravagant as a beautiful handmade sign (check out our gallery wall for some inspirational tutorials!) Whatever you choose to be your motivation, display it where you can see it every day!
Pin your favourite quotes on Pinterest! I love to pin my favourite quotes and check them out when I need a good laugh or a little motivation! This is a great way to pump yourself back up when you’re feeling down!
Helping Others Succeed & Conquer Your Goals
I wrote this in a Facebook group the other day when someone mentioned they were not able to achieve their goals for 2019. Perhaps that is what inspired me to write this post and make this workbook.
If we don’t try, we can not fail. If we stop trying then we fail. It can only go up from here.Jenn Summers
It’s hard to know that you gave it your best shot but did not succeed. It is so easy to fall into the pit of despair and feel like you failed. But you did not fail! Maybe you didn’t achieve those goals but you put yourself out there and you tried.
You Only Fail When You Stop Trying!
A Surprise For Our Readers!
While writing this post I became inspired to create a workbook to help others achieve their goals too. I couldn’t contain my excitement and the positive feel-good vibes that were flowing through my brain. I wanted to shout it from the rooftops!
My mentor, Sasha, has had to put up with all my excitement (and not always coherent rambling) while I hashed out the details with her! Shout out to Sasha from Everyday She’s Sparkling! Her training and Glitterati Hub has helped me to gain the confidence I need to help others succeed!
Not only does she provide courses and training but above all, she really cares! She legitimately cares about your success. She will go to the end of the earth to help you succeed, she will find the answer even if she needs to learn it herself first of all. That is something really rare in this day and age and she does it with her whole heart. And because of all that I’m proud to call her a friend. Love your guts, Sasha!
I Want You To Conquer Your Goals!
I Want YOU to Succeed! My goal is to Empower YOU to conquer your goals! I want to help YOU make it to the Top! Sorry, I really couldn’t help myself with that graphic! I had the ‘I Want You!’ poster stuck in my head, hahaha.
