Take an incremental approach to goal-setting

Hey Mama! This is Robin Camarote with your Working Mom Tip of the Day.    

Instead of setting big goals, set small, more-realistic ones. Then promise yourself to set another and another and another as you achieve them. This incremental approach is more effective because what you want is progress- no “all or nothing.”

How can you tell if a goal is too big? Sometimes we don’t know enough to know when we’ve bitten off too much. Consider asking a trusted friend for their opinion.

Once you’ve set a goal, make achieving that goal part of your daily life by changing your habits. Any goal you work on once a week or once a month is destined to be forgotten or pushed down on your priority list.
