Focus on how you feel during this goal-setting exercise, and get specific.
1. How will you feel when you achieve a goal? Think of this as if you are working from the now. Make it exciting for yourself.
2. Write your feelings down in great detail. Keep this project visible so you can see it every day. It will keep you on track. What are your:
- 5 year Goals
- 1 Year Goals
- 6 Month Goals
- 30 Day Goals
- 7 Day Goals
- Today's Goals
3. Begin with three goals per day to start your energy moving. Within that, start with three to five action steps every day. What you don’t get done that day moves to the next day. Make sure you can get all the steps done within that week. Try this for the next 30 days.
If you are the person who has a hard time seeing the whole picture, then set one goal per week. When you keep achieving your weekly goals your path will become clear and obtainable. It might even have you be able to see the big picture up to five years out.
