no matter what the term or time-frame, always:
1. Think about the goals that you would like to accomplish in your life. At the end of your life, you do not want to say, “I wish I would have ______.” Set a timer for five minutes and write whatever comes to mind about what you would like to do and accomplish over your lifetime.
Include goals in these areas: career, personal relationships, travel, and financial security or any area that is important to you. Write down all your ideas. The goal is to generate as many ideas as possible in five minutes. You can reflect on which ones are most important later.
Look over the ideas you wrote above and highlight or underline the goals that are most important to you.
2. Ask yourself what you would like to accomplish in the next five years. Think about where you want to be in college, what you want to do in your career, and what you want to do in your personal life. Set a timer and write whatever comes to mind in five minutes. The goal is to write down as many ideas as possible.
Underline or highlight the most important ideas. Look at the items that you have highlighted or underlined and make a list of your Lifetime Goals using the form that follows. Make sure your goals are specific enough so that you can break them into steps you can achieve.
What goals would you like to accomplish in the next year? What are some steps that you can begin now to accomplish your lifetime goals? Consider work, study, leisure, and social goals. Set your timer for five minutes and write about your goals for the next year.
Make a list of your lifetime goals using the ideas that you just now generated.
Divide them into long-term, intermediate, and short-term goals.
Make sure your goals are SMART:
Specific, Measurable, Action-oriented, Realistic, and Time-sensitive.
Long-Term Goals (lifetime goals)
Intermediate Goals (5 years)
Short-Term Goals (One year)
What are some steps you can take now to accomplish intermediate and long term goals?
long-term time horizon (life-time)
5 year time-horizon
shorter-term: one year out
reflect, prioritize, & synthesize
my life-time goals
From Good to Great
Take a look at these end-goals
and begin working your way back
take time to reflect, prioritize,
and continue to make adjustments
formulate action steps
(revisit your original lists)
you must distinguish:
and how these fit with your over-all goal set or game plan
the 10-year experiment:
Turn to a partner. Your job is to introduce yourself as you would like to be ten years from now.
Tell your partner what you’re doing “now”...i.e.
(ten years from now) and a little bit about yourself
what are you working on now?
what problems are you solving?
what companies and or persons do you work with and or serve?
For context, you might also include some of the things you've done in the past 2-3 years
Make sure your goals are SMART:
