Setting Strong Goals For 2019
My dear friends, this is my last post for 2018. At the beginning of the year, I promised myself that I would either record an episode on the Live Authentic Podcast or write a coaching related relevant article on my blog once a week. I really am so thrilled that I’ve been able to do that without missing even one week.
So why was this so important to me? My friends, through my blog and podcast, I really want to put as much quality and good information out in the world as I can. In a way circulating the good stuff. I learn and share.
I work directly with clients, but there are so many who are not ready financially or otherwise to come into 1:1 coaching. So this is my way of reaching out and putting useful information out in the world and I really hope it finds you at a time and place it can benefit you. So Thank You for being here.
A couple of weeks ago, I ran a workshop for a group of lovely women and mums on setting goals for 2019 from a place of values, meaning and fulfillment. I received a lot of positive feedback so I thought I’ll bring one thing from this workshop that can help you as you get ready to set some goals for 2019.
To set strong goals for 2019, I want to offer you a series of questions. They are introspective, and you’ll need to spend some time thinking and then writing the answers down. So for this episode, you’ll need to have a sheet of paper, a pen and a quiet space to work. I want you to take this opportunity to really take stock of your life, get connected with your values, get focussed on your goals and create a plan to achieve them.
Step 1: Make your “I Have Done” list for 2018. Include your accomplishments and the things that you feel best about having done. Remember they don’t need to be typical goals.
Step 2: Using the above accomplishments this year as a guide and the values list we used before, to help you understand what’s most authentically important to you, please write down your top values.
Step 3: Rank your top five values in order of importance to you.
Step 4: What does expressing these values look like on a daily basis? Brainstorm your values in action.
Step 5: Sit down with your daily schedule and calendar and re-organise your life according to your values. Start with the first 3 months of 2019. Identify specific times every day that you will do the things that really matter most. Add those most important things to your schedule first, and build the rest of your life around them.
This podcast episode will take you through these steps.
