Goal Setting How To!


If you’re anything like me, goal setting and reflection is not something that comes naturally!  It is a skill that needs to be honed and practiced!  Over the past few years, I have really made goal setting at the beginning of the year a priority and I attribute that consistency to my Passion Planner and the book “High Performance Habits” by Brendon Burchard!! Goal setting is a great way to focus your efforts and consistently check in to see if the small steps you are making each day aligns with your greater picture!  Another way to think about that is, are you spending your time where you need to be in order to meet the goals you want to accomplish (what would your Netflix say?)?? In an effort to help make this process a little smoother, I have included some ways to help “Goal Setting for 2021” below!

Tip 1: Create a master list of all the things you want to accomplish!

This list can then be categorized in short term, mid-range, and long term – Don’t exclude anything!  After organizing the list, circle the three things that will make THE MOST difference!

Tip 2: Create a list of all the steps it takes to accomplish these goals.

Go through to each of the circle goals and create a list of all the tasks it takes to make this happen! Adding a timeframe will also help here, but not necessary! After brain dumping onto the page, organize the list in chronological order!

Tip 3: Plan it!

Plan into your weeks, the steps from Tip 2! If you see it on your calendar and work it into your schedule, you are WAY more likely to work on it!

Tip 4: Give yourself grace!

Goal planning is a process! It isn’t about it being perfect, or having hard deadlines.  This process can be fluid, rearranged, and you can return to this process periodically throughout the year or as you meet your goals! This process truely helps my brain to calm down and relax because I have a plan in place! It also makes me feel like I am always making progress instead of getting stuck in the grind!  This is also a great thing to do with a small group of close friends! It really opens up great conversation and even brainstorming! I hope you enjoy! If you try it, let us know what you think!

In Strength and Confidence,
