Goals Setting Simplified

January is the time of the year that everyone is talking about goals & goal setting. Okay…what exactly is goal setting? Writing any old goal is easy…Picking a goal that is really meaningful to you is more difficult. I thought I would write out a few steps that I have found most useful.

So… here’s my 2 cents on goal setting simplified.

1. Think about a goal that has personal meaning for you:

Goal setting is much more than just writing out a few things in a list that sounds really great to others or your peers. Goal setting requires that you will be doing the work to achieve the desired goal. Without the work, goals just become dreams & words on a page. Be sure to be clear and specific on what you want to achieve within this goal.

2. Set the intentions for each major goal you want to set:

An Intention for a larger goal helps keep the big picture in mind and creates a purpose that you originally set your sights on for making this goal. The Intention is the powerhouse of feelings behind the goal you set. This gives you directional focus and is phrased in a positive affirmative.

3. Break the goal into bite-sized pieces :

A major goal will most likely be broken into at least 3 timelines – Short-term, Mid-tern & Long-term. Use these increments of time to break down the larger components into more specific and manageable timelines. This helps creates believability in achieving your goal.

4. Write the goal in the positive affirmative:

Yes, you have to write out the goal on paper, as this in grains the goal into the deep recesses of your mind & sets the motion into action. To write the goal in the positive affirmative means to write the goal in a positive phrase as if it has already happened.  This sets the stage for your mind to believe that this goal has Already Happened & will keep this energy that this is true.  The famous quote “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. “ by Napoleon Hill stands true to today as they did back then.

5. Assign a specific time/date with your signature:

This is the final steps for your goal setting. You need to assign a specific date & time. Without a date, you have no way of knowing if you are on track or not. The date & time is an absolute & concrete moment in time that allows your mind to understand when this goal has happened. Your signature at the end of your date & time is like a handshake at the end of a deal and this becomes your contact with yourself.

What goals have you set for this year?

Have you written them out yet?

Until next time… Make each day count!
