"If you don't know where you're going, how do you expect to get there?" -- Basil S. Walsh
Goal setting is a tool that is underutilized. I use to think that I could have the goals in my head, I didn't need to write them down and I didn't fully achieve my goals or I lost focus because I didn't have a clear plan. I have since learned to write down my goals and have benefited from this practice. The list provides a visual guide and reference point, I also add reasonable timelines for completion. I consider it to be like a grocery list of items I want. Who hasn't been to the store without a list and have forgotten items that were needed. A goal list is to keep you on task and focused. Your goals are all about you and what you want Here are some tips to help you start your goal list.
Here is the goal list that we work on: Family & Home, Financial and Career, Spiritual and Ethical, Physical & Health, Social & cultural, Mental & Educational
1. Write your goals down.
2. Keep your goals to 5-7 items, as studies show it’s easier and not as overwhelming to keep your focus
3. Review them regularly
Good luck and enjoy the process!
