Peter: What’s your new year’s resolution?
Chigusa: And how will you make sure you succeed?
Peter: Let us know your strategies in the comments! But...
Chigusa: ...A lot of people fall short... don’t they, Peter?
Peter: They do. If you don’t have the blueprint for setting successful goals....
Chigusa: ... if you don’t know how to stick to your learning routines...
Peter: ...or stay motivated, listeners, your efforts will probably fall flat.
Chigusa: Peter, so what is this “secret” blueprint for setting successful goals?
Peter: Alright, if you want to know how I went from failing my goals years ago, to finally succeeding, and learning Japanese...
Chigusa: Pay attention, because this is a GREAT lesson....
Peter: ...A few simple changes to my goal made a massive difference. In fact, I now apply these to everyday life goals. Not just languages. Because they work so well.
Chigusa: What kinds of changes?
Peter: First, I set measurable goals. Chigusa, most people typically aim for a vague resolution like “This year, I’ll master Japanese or this year I’ll Chinese.”
Chigusa: Yeah, or “This year, I’ll go to the gym”
Peter: But vague goals are problematic. So I started aiming for smaller, more measurable goals, most importantly with deadlines. For example, for January 2019, if I’m learning a new language, my goal is to speak 1 minute of conversation and the deadline would be January 31st, 2019.
Chigusa: Just 1 minute? Oh, yeah, that definitely sounds manageable.
Peter: Right? That’s the point! You can’t lift hundreds of pounds on your first day at the gym...
Chigusa: ...and you can’t expect to be fluent on your first day or your first month.
Peter: But you can start small and build up from there. For February, I’ll aim for 3 minutes. March will be 5. And these will add up, so by the end of the year, I’ll reach 30 minutes of conversation.
Chigusa: That makes a lot of sense.
Peter: So, Listeners, start setting small, monthly goals with a deadline.
Chigusa: Are there any other tips you can give to our listeners for 2019?
Peter: Listeners, write down a small, measurable goal, set a deadline, and put it somewhere you’ll see it every day. I know it sounds strange, but believe it or not, it really keeps you focused.
Chigusa: And that doesn’t just apply to language learning, but any goal you’re trying to achieve in life!
Peter: Chigusa, it really works. So, listeners, take these tips and apply them right now.
Chigusa: And once you do that, we challenge you to master a language in 2019.
