Without goals, we tend to coast through life. You probably have at least one thing you want to accomplish, have a good idea for something new or know in your heart of hearts, some area of your life needs a change, but without specific goals, often we don’t do what is necessary to get the ball rolling!
Goal setting keeps us on target to live our lives more fully, grow as a person, family or business and helps us succeed in the face of challenges and change with the times.
Here is a S-M-A-R-T formula for setting goals and increasing the likelihood of achieving them:
- You will always be spectacularly imperfect. Don’t put your dreams or goals on hold until you are perfect. It will never happen, and you will deny the world a chance to fully benefit from knowing you.
- You can not have a great life if you have bad attitude. If you have a bad attitude, why not consider an adjustment. What have you got to lose?
- You are exactly where you need to be this minute, but that doesn’t mean you can or should stay there.
In my opinion, these are great questions to keep you accountable to yourself:
October has been an amazing month for me. To kick-off the month, nearly two weeks before my Big 50 Birthday, my husband, Larry and good friend, Lori, threw me the best surprise party in the history of surprise parties.! To say, I was surprised is a huge understatement. For 20 whole seconds, I just stood there dumbfounded.
