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.

  • Work/Career/Professional
  • Educational
  • Financial
  • Spiritual
  • Emotional

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.
