I stress the importance of goal-setting often. It is such a vital part of our success in everything we do. If we have no goals then we have no direction or motivation to step out of everyday routine and get uncomfortable!
When meeting with my clients I ask them to tell me exactly what they want and how they want to utilize me to get them there.
More than half of my clients don’t even know what it is they want. They will say things like “I want to be thin” and when I ask them to draw a picture of explain what “thin” looks like in their mind, they are stumped on what to say next.
We have a these thoughts that run through our head daily of what we want or think we are entitled too, but when it comes down to it we don’t even know where to begin to get there!
Here is a great article from an Intentional Leadership Speaker by the name of MIchael Hyatt. He lists the 5 reasons it is so important to write down your goals.
Writing your goals puts your vision on paper and helps you visualize a path to get you there. Goal setting sets you apart from all the people around you who “talk” about what they want, but never do anything or write anything to get them there!
Take 20 minutes and just write down some goals you would like to attain. Write them for the month, 3 months, 6 months, and the year and then each month reevaluate them and make necessary changes to get you to being the “Best You Can Be”!
