BRAINSTORMING GOALS:

Think about what you want to achieve. The first step in setting any goal is deciding what you want. Most people have a general sense of things they want. It might be happiness, health, wealth, or a better relationship with your spouse. Your first tasks is translating that into some things you'd like to actually accomplish.

A good place to start is defining your terms. If you want to be happier, think about what happiness means to you. What does a happy life look like? What would you need to do to be happy?

It's okay to be general at this stage. You might decide happiness, for example, means having a fulfilling career. Your general goal might be to get a job you find personally satisfying.

You may have several goals at this stage, some long-term some short term. It's a good idea to write them down.

Achieving Your Goals:

Everybody has things they'd like to achieve in life. Setting goals and achieving them not only gets things done, but can also build self-esteem, happiness, and a sense of well-being. This is more likely to happen if your goals are realistic. Realistic goals are also more motivating than those that set the bar too high.

Make a plan. Once you've settled on an realistic goal, your first step is to create a detailed plan for achieving it.

This should be fairly easy at this point. You have already written down the steps and potential obstacles you might face. The main parts of your plan are already developed.
You may need to get a little more specific with your steps. Completing all of these should be in your plan.

The steps should be defined specifically enough that it will be clear when you have achieved each one.

It's also a good idea to develop contingency plans for the obstacles you anticipated.

Come up with a goal/sub-goal statement which is measurable and time bound.

Set a timeline. Many people find having a specific timeline in their plan helps make their goal more achievable. It helps you track your progress an stay accountable.

Track your progress:

Once you get started, keep track of your progress. You can use a journal, an app, or a simple calendar.

Tracking your progress helps keep you accountable to the deadlines you've set. It also helps you see the progress you've made as you move through the process. This can help you stay motivated to keep making progress.

Good luck on your journey to wellness, I'll be checking on you!
