SECTION 7 - SETTING GOALS

SUMMARY

Did you know there is a simple process that can dramatically increase the efficiency of our daily lives? With this tool, we can optimize our time, increase productivity, and make the most out of our days. What is it you ask? Goal setting. That’s right, this elementary skill is so useful in leading a successful life, yet often overlooked due to familiarity. Since people become too familiar with the idea of goal setting, they often forget its main purpose. Goal setting is a strategy you will apply for the rest of your life. When we set our goals, we want to be very clear about them so that we have the best chance to achieve them. The key to remember is that goals come in all shapes and sizes. Just because it doesn’t work for someone else doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve it. Your kids will learn from both their achievements and setbacks, but as they begin to set personal goals, they will learn and grow in ways that you did not think possible. So, to begin, let’s take a look at what goals are.

PART ONE - SMART GOALS - ASESSMENTS

Your first step is to take a few assessments to learn a little bit about yourself to see what direction you want to go in to select your goal
