Setting goals for yourself is good.
It’s better than good — it’s required for living a personally rewarding life.
Your goals may vary over the years, shifting with your priorities, wants, needs, and desires.
Part of your life might be focused on money-related goals, you might spend a decade concentrating on career goals, family goals may come into play, etc. I think a successful life is setting and achieving goals that help you grow and develop into a well-rounded, caring, human being.
I believe in setting goals.
I set goals for myself and I think others should set personal goals for themselves — but as much as I believe in goal setting, I also know that I can only set goals for myself. I can’t set goals for you or anyone else.
- I can encourage you to set goals.
- I can share stories about successful people setting and achieving their goals.
- I can assist and advise you with ideas on how to reach the goals you set for yourself.
- But I can’t set your goals for you.
Only you can decide what your priorities are to focus on in your life today, tomorrow, and further into the future. Those priorities that you decide to devote attention to become your goals.
I want the best for you.
I want you to live a life that is rewarding to you and to those you care for.
But you have to set your own goals based on what you want.
And only you know what that is.
There are a TON of goal-setting tools and systems out there waiting for you to utilize — but none of those goal setting journals come with your goals pre-written into the pages.
What you want today might be different than what you want tomorrow — and that’s perfectly fine — that’s the way it works! I hope you’ll make it a goal to decide what that is, and to make a plan to go out and get it.
