STEP 1 Make a list of the seven areas in which you will create your goals: 1. Financial 2. Career 3. Spiritual 4. Physical 5. Intellectual 6. Family 7. Social
STEP 2 Start by creating 1-3 long term goals for each area. At this point, they can be very general, we will polish them up in the following steps.
STEP 3 For each goal, make sure to answer these 3 questions: 1. What do I want to accomplish? Make this specific. 2. When do I want to achieve this by? You must make yourself accountable, that’s why you need a deadline. 3. Why do I want to achieve this? Make sure this goal is something you want to achieve for yourself.
STEP 4 Make sure your goals adhere to the following: • Realistic - Do you have the resources needed? Do you have the skills/talents? Are you financially able? • Purposeful - Why is this goal important to you? What will you or others gain from it? • Personal - Is this goal what you want or what someone else wants?
STEP 5 Short term goals These will be written more often than the long term goals. Determine how often you will write them and make that a goal in itself! For each long term goal, you will have several short term goals which may or may not be the same every week.
STEP 6 Make sure your short term goals include the following: Action words Time limits Quantities
STEP 7 Write these down! On a whiteboard; pad of paper; computer document; anywhere that others can see. Share with anyone that will listen or read! This will help you stay motivated and accountable. Revisit and check your goals often! This will help you stay on task and feel accomplished!
