I’m late in sharing goals setting I know. It’s already close to the end of January. Most of you have got your goals set for the year. Or do you?
In a poll today on my Goal Setting Webinar, 100% of the attendees did not have any goals set for this year.
Wait a minute!
Are you just floating along, aimlessly a victim of whatever happens in your life?
Are you intentionally creating life, days, your career and your family life as you chose?
Newsflash: You can create your life experience
How did you ask?
By being intentional. You create life experiences by reflecting, deciding, setting goals and planning, all before you take action.
Here is your homework:
1. Set aside time
Yes, this takes some time. 30-minutes is a good place to start if your time deficient.
2. Vision what you want in your future
If you had the “perfect” life, career and relationship:
3. Write down those things
Journal of that future vision for a few minutes.
4. Develop a goal
Consider what you would need to do this year to move you closer to that vision. Develop your goal as specific as you can.
5. Expand the goal into a plan
If you want to achieve that goal, what do you need to do to get there. This expansion may include action, practices, and training.
6. Create a habit
Consider what you will need to do for the rest of your life to maintain that goal. What actions will you have to take daily to ensure you stay on track? How will you instill those into your daily routine?
Taking 30 minutes out of your day, to intentionally create your future could have a crazy positive impact on how 2016 unfolds for you. Deliberately cultivating your life experience can help you find you achieve more of what you want. You'll be clear, and you will consciously know what you need to do to get there.
