3 Steps for Better Yearly Goals
Transcript of 3 Steps for Better Yearly Goals
Make a list, mind map or spreadsheet. Whatever you feel more comfortable with.
Don't worry about limitations, time, money...
Think BIG! Focus Narrow down your goal list using:
challeng'iness A goal is not specific enough until it has 3 numbers attached to it: It is exciting to make decisions on all you can accomplish in one year and very rewarding as you start completing each goal. Each little win gives you fuel for the next one.
As I completed my goals in previous years, I noticed how these wins changed me into a better person. Through the process you get to meet people, experience new things and learn about yourself.
It has improved me as a person, my health, and my relationships with others. I hope it continues and that you have similar experiences as well.
Have Fun! Steps for better Yearly BIG! Don't Limit Yourself List everything you would like to do, learn, explore. It doesn't matter if it is for work, personal, family, fitness or hobby. List it all. It is a lot easier to really prioritize what's important to you, once it is on "paper." Use a Mindmap I love mindmaps. I'm a very visual person and it allows me to throw everything out there and worry about organizing and relationships later. It allows me to improvise, visualize and bounce ideas. String Goals Together

They are meant to keep your year long road map interesting.
You do not fail if you don't achieve your Side Quests, but you enrich your main goal experience. Fitness Finances Running a 5K Chat with

Come up with a reasonable amount and take into consideration that some goals will take longer than others.
I did 3 goals last year and I have 6 this year.
If your goal will take longer than a year to complete, consider if it is realistic or if it needs to be simplified. Fitness Running a 5K Lifting 2x My Weight Finances Saving for a

That said, be realistic. If you have never ran before it will be really hard for you to complete an Ultra Marathon, an IronMan and depending on your current health even a regular marathon.
You don't always have to do more of the same to make it challenging, just do it faster. For example, if you can complete a marathon, try qualifying for Boston.
Want a more systematic approach? Give a score to each goal depending on how challenging it is. Try not to burn yourself out by picking only the most challenging tasks. You may be setting yourself for failure. Challeng'iness =
