Personal Goal Setting

Sometimes the hardest part of personal goal setting is figuring out the kinds of goals to have. These pages offer some “food for thought” and ideas for your own goal setting activities.

Here’s where the reflection and time you’ve taken to learn about yourself will really be useful. Ultimately, goals revolving around things you enjoy doing and are consistent with your values, passion, and philosophy will be much stronger and likely to be achieved.

CAUTION: When considering your goals, remember to key in on the things that really resonate with you and give you energy. Do not pick from all these ideas like a menu or else your list of goals will be overwhelming and divert your focus toward the things that are really important to you.
