Sometimes you need to adjust to reality. Take the year 2020 for example! WOW! What you really wanted to get to this year probably didn't match the reality of the last year. Many times life changes happen that reailroad our best efforts.
If you didn't meet your goals for this year, or any year, month or day, then forgive yourself (and the Universe) and be willing to start again or over and learn from the setback.
Tell someone else about the goal or goals you are setting so that you have someone to hold you accountable. Not to blame you but to keep you on track. In this way you get it out to the Universe so it can actually happen. Use others to help you make it possible to achieve your goals.
THEN do the work. Whatever goal you have set out to achieve is only achieved by doing the work. Goals don't work unless you do! If creating that next class is on your agenda, then you have to do the work to get the lesson plans in order, the class notes developed and the actual lecture work written. (Yes, I'm talking about myself here!)
By doing the work you grow with the goal. When you set a big goal you may have to learn new things and create new ways of getting to the goal. Let the goal you set GROW you!
"Set a goal so BIG that you can't achieve it until you grow in the person who can."
Unknown who actually made this quote but it surely applies here.
"What the mind can conceive and believe, and the heart desire, you can achieve."
Norman Vincent Peale
When you set a goal you grow into it when you set your mind and heart into it. You will automatically move in that direction.
Move in the direction of your dreams.
