Do you set goals? Are you actually moving toward them?
I used to think I was good at setting goals but I realized I wasn’t moving in any direction. I had NO vision. I didn’t know what kind of life I was working toward.
Once I had “sort of” a vision of where I wanted to go, I, at least, had a starting place. I wasn’t just setting goals to set them anymore. Because that’s exactly what I was doing.
Why set goals?
Without them how will you know if your moving toward your vision or away from it? When we are clear on our vision, we can set goals to make real progress.
Honestly, I don’t believe there's a one-size fits all solution but there are a lot of resources.
Two years ago I finally found one that worked for me...Cultivate What Matters Powersheets. The really awesome thing about Powersheets is, you can use them a variety of different ways. You can even take a month off and not feel guilty about it.
At the beginning of 2019, I’ll show how I set up the beginning of my year but for now, I’ll just share my goals with you and how they help progress throughout the month. (Check out my Instagram for progress checkins throughout the month)
I originally saw Diana Kerr, another life coach, post hers and it was super helpful for me. I hope this glimpse into my world is just as helpful.
I separate my goals into three “buckets" personal, professional, and relational.
PROFESSIONAL: Enroll X amount of clients
PROFESSIONAL: Write the next month of blogs
RELATIONAL: Go on a “intentional” date night
PERSONAL: Purge and Pack 2 rooms
PERSONAL: Work on creative “outside-of-work” project
RELATIONAL: Work at least 2 days with other people
PROFESSIONAL: Write every day
PERSONAL: Prayer & Bible
PERSONAL: 5 Gratitudes
PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL: Read 50 pages
PERSONAL: Drink 60oz. of water
PERSONAL: Get outside for at least 15 minutes
