Do you set goals for you business and personal life? If not, you should. Otherwise how else will you achieve everything you want in life? Life is short, and we must make the most of it.
I get it, not everybody is goal orientated or career orientated and an ‘over-achiever’ like myself (I really like to push myself!) But, we all want something. Whether it’s a promotion at work, more clients for our business, a beautiful new house, a dog, kids, a Chanel handbag or simply a new DVD. We all have desires, so how do we track and push ourselves to get them?
It will not just fall into your lap. Unless you have completely mastered the Law of Attraction. But, even then, you still must know exactly want you want and focus on it completely.
So, we set goals to help us achieve the things we want in life. They help us figure out exactly what we want to achieve and create a plan to get there.
There are also dozens of ways to set goals, SMART goals, SMERTIE goals, vision boarding… I’ll let you decide what is best for you and do the research because you won’t relate to them all.
For instance, at our monthly meetings with The Diamond Initiative, we sit down and map out our goals for the next month and create an ‘action plan’. But what’s I’ve noticed is people don’t really relate to it, in fact some people actually squirm! And the following month I’ll ask if the goals we set have been achieved and the response I get is ‘I don’t know, I didn’t look at them.’ This is because this style of goal setting doesn’t resonate with everybody. It may work for me, but that doesn’t mean it will work for you.
On Friday, at our Christmas event, we have Neuroscientist, Adele Bryant, giving an exciting talk on why our brains don’t like goal setting. I am absolutely on the edge of my seat to hear it because I want to help people achieve their goals and dreams. I’m hoping I’ll be able to utilise the knowledge Adele will give in my own goal setting techniques and in those who I try to help so we can all have a stellar 2018.
Goals are one of the key things to making 2018 our best year yet.
You can see Adele’s chat with Robyn and myself on our YouTube channel prior to the event!
