It's Fall! Summer's gone and a new season is underway. I always think of the change of seasons as a great time to work on personal change. And one of the most effective ways to implement change is to set realistic, motivating goals....and to write them down! I once asked a weight management group I was leading, "Why is it important to write your goals?" One gentleman immediately spoke up, "If you don't write them, they don't happen". He nailed it. He worked with sales reps and was professionally familiar with why goals need to be written. Even better, posted. When you write down your goals, you get them out of the realm of "wishes" and into the reality of creating something that can actually come to be.
That being said, it's important that your goals be:
1. Something that sparks you, stated positively. No one is motivated by the negative.
2. Within your reach. A stretch for sure...but still something that is realistically doable.
3. Within your control. Set goals that depend only upon what you do. This is all about you.
4. A good fit for your life. Important that whatever it takes to get there actually works in your life.
