Wouldn’t you agree that if we don’t dream big, we certainly won’t achieve big dreams?   So, how do we achieve big dreams?   The answer is that the more specific our goals are, the more likely we are to attain those goals.   These goal setting techniques will aid you in getting past the roadblock preventing you from achieving your goals.    It's not enough to set a goal--you have to tackle it!

You will be introduced to 8 SPECIFIC goal areas.   At least two goals should be identified in each goal area every month.   When identifying goals, they should be developed based on the following criteria:

·          SPECIFIC

·          Purposeful and aligned with long term goals

·          Simple, clear and focused

·          Documented each month

·          Action taken

Then, if we assess which goals can be accomplished in multiple areas, it makes the goals specific and manageable.   So, here are the goal areas!

S = Spiritual

There is a close connection between spiritual goal-orientation and motivation and fulfillment in your spiritual life.   How do you want to grow spiritually?  

P = Personal and E=Emotional

Self reflection is critical to establishing personal and emotional life goals.   Personal and emotional goals are our own specific goals that are aligned with our life objective.   SPECIFIC examples of personal goals:

C = Career and Knowledge Growth

A career development plan should have precise career growth goals as their foundation.   How do you desire to grow in relation to your career?   Career goals are aligned with vocational dreams we want to achieve.  

I = Interaction

How will you improve and nurture your friendships?   What will you do for your spouse, children, other family members, in order to develop these relationships to a greater depth?  

F = Fun

Learning to enjoy yourself is making sure you identify what is fun for you and then making the time to do it. There are a lot of health benefits for humor and laughter. What are fun activities for you?  

I = Increase Wealth

Wealth is really a state of mind.   So, the question becomes, how do we achieve it?   There are a couple of key areas as we think about increasing our wealth: budgeting, savings, investing, and monitoring net worth.  

C = Clean Up Chaos & Clutter

Research indicates that if we will take the time to de-clutter our lives, we will create the space for positive things to enter our lives.   What “stuff” do you need to clear out of your life?

It is important to remember three basic principle as you establish specific goals:

1.      Clarify what you want to achieve in each goal area

2.      Create a plan of action through specific goal identification

3.      Take action

So, go tackle your goals and achieve big dreams one day at a time.
