“Goals are nature’s gifts that create ‘in the moment’ joy and satisfaction.”
For each category below, write a few sentences about your long-term goals and how you will achieve them.
Create specific short-term goals for each category –
Include: 1-year, 6-month, 1-month, 1-week, and 1-day goals
Setting smaller, more attainable short-term goals will help you reach the larger, more challenging long-term goals. In addition, you will feel less overwhelmed!
One last tip: If you are feeling “stuck” in your life, try making process goals instead of outcome goals. Focus on establishing a new routine, such as yoga 3 days/week or cycling to work 2 days/week, and see where it takes you… You just might be pleasantly surprised and rewarded at the end result!
“I set challenging, attainable goals, and focus on the process involved in achieving them.“
“A goal is the toll for creating what I deserve now.“
