Goal Setting: Don’t Fly Blind

Goal Setting: Don’t Fly Blind

Didn’t January just scream by?  In that vein, and if you are like me at all, the goal setting process is intellectually important but can get pushed to something I’ll get to next weekend—kind of like my honey do list.

Last year I introduced an easier way to put a few proverbial stakes—translated means goals or intentions—into the ground without the traditional baggage associated with the goal setting process.  Most goal setting that I have experienced can become one more thing to get accomplished; and like gravity; can fall to end of the list.

Ask us for the My Life Story™ exercise which is an easy way to create intentionality around this new year: what you want to experience, what you want to do more of, what you want to do less of, what relationships you want to build, where you want go personally and professionally, and more.

I just finished up my own story this past weekend and was reminded of how meaningful this process can be.  In a few short minutes I captured specific actions and themes I want for my life this year.  The power of taking this step is both in completing the exercise but also once completed, leaving it alone.

Putting your thoughts to paper, even if just notes, can solidify things in a way that creates a pathway for them to occur.  Leaving these critical thoughts fermenting in your subconscious mind can remove the pressure of typical goals and allows freedom and opportunity to bring some to fruition and others to not develop.

The other fun part of this exercise is periodically reviewing your life story throughout the year to see whether the fictional story has become reality and in what way.

Give it a try and let me know how it has worked for you.

    I needed to draft you this very small word just to say thanks a lot as before relating to the stunning strategies you’ve documented here. It is so extremely open-handed of you to present easily what most people could possibly have distributed as an ebook in making some money for themselves, primarily considering the fact that you might well have done it in the event you decided. These ideas likewise worked like the great way to realize that someone else have similar passion just as my own to know a whole lot more pertaining to this matter. I know there are several more fun periods in the future for people who find out your forum.
