How to make goal setting less daunting
Goal setting was the subject of a recent meeting I attended with Mumazing Success. We all know that we need to set goals if we have any chance of achieving them, but what is the best way of going about this?
The group founder Lucy, a Professional & Personal Development Coach, shared with us all what I thought was one of the best ways of approaching goal setting, so I felt I needed to share my interpretation of this valuable session.
“20% of people make goals but only 3% write them down”
Work out your goals
Imagine your life twelve months ago. What were you doing then and was it what you wanted to be doing?
Picture your life now, twelve months on. What has changed? Is this positive change or have you developed any habits that you are less than happy with?
Imagine your life in twelve months time, What does it look like? Picture your work, your friends, your family and your health & wellbeing. These are your goals – where you want to be in twelve months time. Wow, that was easy wasn’t it!
Define your actions
- What do you need to change to achieve your goals?
- What actions do you need to take to make these changes?
- Ensure that the actions are SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic & Timebound);
- Write down your actions and goals. Only 20% of people set goals and only 3% write them down. Commit them to paper as doing so will make you more likely to carry them out. Stick them on the fridge, in the office or create a vision board. Post them on a Facebook group so your friends & colleagues can hold you accountable.
Get on with it!
If your goals include seeing your friends more, pick up the phone and call them. If you want to be healthier and have decided to join a gym, get down there now and sign up.
