I was on an impromptu webinar tonight about Goal Setting. What does that mean? I got notice of the webinar 65 minutes before it was starting, so I signed up immediately only to find out that the webinar was starting in 3 minutes. It’s good to be flexible.
Here are two very important exercises that are actually fun to do. But the key here is to spend enough time on each question (20 to 30 minutes!) so you can start really “feeling” it in your gut. Here they are:
1. What is the story of your perfect life? Write the story and use sights, sounds, feeling, and smells and taste – if you like.
Like I mentioned, really think about this. How does each day start? What is your perfect day? Who are you with? Where are you? What is driving you? What is your passion?
2. What would you buy if you had unlimited resources and there was a Perfect Life Store? You could purchase personality traits as well as a Lexus GX460 or a Red BMW M6. You could also donate money to your favorite charity. Or you could fly down to Central America and assist a local clinic for a month. What would you do?
Stretch you mind here. The key word is “unlimited.” Most of us have to visit this over and over again to start getting a feel for “unlimited.”
The big key to both of these questions is to WRITE down the answers. Leave some space too, because you will be always adding to these or changing them.
This is just the beginning of goal setting. But it’s an important beginning. Because if you don’t know where you are going, any path or road will do.
Stay tuned for more. It’s on the way!
