Goals, and PDP Better Than New Year New Resolutions
Bible ‭‭verses: Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Reflections 
Glory be to God for His mercies and faithfulness in bringing us to the New Year Twenty Twenty Win. Currently, this is the time of the year that most people make new year resolutions or personal development plans (PDP).
However, research has shown that new year resolutions only last couple of weeks before people fail to continue.
Also yearly appraisals are done for employees and I remember when I had mine last year, I was required and set at least five goals and PDP – Personal Development Plan, which should be SMART, that is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-bound.
There is a popular saying that ‘you can not continue to do the same things and expect different results. Basically, for you to get a different or better results, you must change the way you do things or your way of life. Therefore, setting goals or having a personal development plan is crucial and better than new Year resolutions.
In this new year, can I encourage you reading this devotional today to put God first in setting your goals and PDP as our scripture above, acknowledge God in setting your goals and he shall direct your paths in achieving them in Jesus Christ name.
Prayer Outlines 
Father God, I put my trust in you to help me in setting my SMART goals and PDP this new year, and I believe that you will direct my paths in achieving them in Jesus Christ name. Amen.
