Goal Setting

by Anna D

Ask yourself, is what I’m doing today getting me closer to where I want to be tomorrow?

Set goals to focus on your efforts and take steps to where you want to go in life. By making your goals visual and concrete, you can easily identify distractions and road blocks that are keeping you from achieving what you want.  Set goals to see yourself progress and raise your self-confidence. Set REAL goals, goals you genuinely want and recognize your ability to achieve.

Create SMART goals

When setting your goals start with the big picture then break it down into smaller targets, then realistic steps you will take to turn this into a reality. For example, 10 year plan –>5 year plan–>monthly plan–>weekly plan–> daily plan.

Types of goals

  • Career – What level do you want to reach in your career, or what do you want to achieve?
  • Financial – How much do you want to earn, by what stage? How is this related to your career goals?
  • Education – Is there any knowledge you want to acquire in particular? What information and skills will you need to have in order to achieve other goals?
  • Family – Do you want to be a parent? If so, how are you going to be a good parent? How do you want to be seen by a partner or by members of your extended family?
  • Artistic – Do you want to achieve any artistic goals?
  • Attitude – Is any part of your mindset holding you back? Is there any part of the way that you behave that upsets you? (If so, set a goal to improve your behavior or find a solution to the problem.)
  • Physical – Are there any athletic goals that you want to achieve, or do you want good health deep into old age? What steps are you going to take to achieve this?
  • Pleasure – How do you want to enjoy yourself? (You should ensure that some of your life is for you!)
  • Public Service – Do you want to make the world a better place? If so, how?

SO GET TO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
