It appears everyone is offering goals webinars, seminars, courses and programs this time of the year. I have taken dozens and all of them were worth my time and effort. Not one was identical and the majority of the information was different. I recommend you develop what works for you. What has worked for me and I have had a lot of personal success with goals, is:
The goal must be written down but you may not have to ‘see’ it daily but maybe you do. You will find both ways taught. What works for you is all that matters.
A goal is an object or event towards which PLAY is directed in order to score. Do not collapse the score with the goal. If you do, play will disappear. Ultimate success is tied to the score and each accomplished goal is a success itself. Add more play!!
How goals, how you intend or want to accomplish something are a waste of time. They are designed to keep you from the ‘what’ goals above.
Goals are secret UNTIL you have reached them. You may want one person to ‘hold’ them for you if that supports their fruition.
You don’t need to know or break them down into every single little task. Any worrying about how to get it done produces the wrong energy for me. Many will disagree with this but many little doable daily goals supporting something far off in the future has always killed the fun for me. I hold the goal, in crystal clear, specific detailed existence in my mind. I then follow the appearance of what and where to have it happen, what I call ‘bread crumbs’. What I need to do today will appear!
Too many goals also kill the fun, the play and the likelihood that any goal will come into existence. Personally, I think too many send out the wrong message and quite possibly more than one are in opposition to one of the others. I personally have only ONE goal.
There are no impossible goals. The timeline may require adjustment for accomplishment as long as you do not quit.
Everything is possible for him who believes. – Mark 9:23
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. – Matthew 7:7
Stop worrying! Have fun and play all the way!
What and how do you set goals that have worked for you? What hasn’t worked?
