Brainstorm and write down all your goals!


 

How When it comes down to how to set goals, you don’t need to worry about various categories. When you are in the “idea” phase and brainstorming out all the possibilities for what you might want to pursue in your future, you need not get caught up in categories or the “types” of different goals.

 

Simply write down as many things as possible for what you’d like to do, be or have. Remember, the sky is the limit! Also, let me give you a very cool tip for this first step on how to set goals.

 

Spend as much time as needed, or as much time as possible on this exercise until you feel as though you have really captured many of the goals that are important to you. Don’t feel as though you have or need any goals? Hmm…Think again, and Read all about what goal setting really means!

 

Why wouldn’t you want to take your time on this brainstorming exercise? I you are feeling as though you  don’t have time for this step, consider this – how many hours a week do you spend watching television? I’m guessing you spend at least 1-2 hours on average. How much time per day do you spend texting, browsing Groupon deals and checking your Facebook account?

 

Having said that, why wouldn’t you invest a minimum of an hour on this particular exercise? I guarantee you that the few hours you invest in this exercise will return much more than the few hours you spend on all those other inconsequential activities.

 

And, let me also say that you’ll have just as much if not more fun brainstorming your dreams for the future, especially if you’re anything like me, and you get a kick out of pursuing your personal growth! Here are some awesome motivational goal setting questions that will help you identify all the things that you want to do, become or achieve (you don’t have to answer these, but they will stimulate a lot more ideas for you)!

 

Go nuts, and make a nice big long list! If you are in need of finding a good way to organize your list of brainstormed goals be sure to read about my Evolving Achievements Binder and How to Manage Your Evolving Achievements Binder!
