“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible”
- Tony Robbins -
It is never too late to reevaluate your life goals and see where you are at. Goals are an important part of moving forward in life. When drawbacks happen and life goes in a direction you didn't plan for, your goal helps you refocus and recommit to where you want to go. Goals also give you something to be accountable to and assist you in making sure you follow through with your plans.
The easiest way to set goals is to break down the different areas of your life and set unique and practical goals for each area.
If you haven't set any fresh goals lately or you are looking for a more holistic approach to goal setting, here is a list of 8 areas of life to set goals:
Where do you want to be with your health in 3 months from now? What do you need to start doing today to get there? Remember taking these slow simple steps will lead to a healthier life.
What relationships are important in your life? How do you want to improve these relationships in the next 3 months? Focus on the top 3 relationships and then break them down into categories, such as spouse, children, and close circle.
3. Career & Business
Are you happy with the state of your career? What do you need to start doing today to get where you want to be? Study something? Apply for something new? Make this step very practical by taking some small simple steps.That first step is always the hardest.
Do you want to be debt free? Do you want to start investing? Outline your current financial situation and work out a plan of how you will move forward.
5. Personal & Spiritual Development
How do you personally want to develop? What habits do you want to break? Is there a new hobby you want to start? A new language you want to learn? This is an area you get to spoil yourself and focus only on YOU.
6. Environment & Space
Have you looked at your surroundings lately? From the city you live in, to the housing you live in, is it still supporting your lifestyle? Does something need to change? Does your bedroom need a small makeover to refresh your living environment?
Before writing each goal, here are some further questions you can ask yourself to help get your mind in focus:
How do I want to feel on a day-to-day basis?
Who do I want to be?
What impact do I want to have on the people around me?
Good luck with setting your goals. Remember life is not a competition with anyone else, you are the one who decides WHO you want to be!
