We love everything about setting goals. They give you something concrete to work towards that will benefit you in the long run. However, with so many facets of life that need attention, where do you even start with goal-setting? We recommend choosing 1-3 goals in each of these categories: financial, physical body, career, relationships, and personal. Here are some examples:
Financial goals: Pay off x amount of debt, save up x amount for down payment on ahouse, pay for a new car in cash.
Physical Body: Lose 15 pounds, be able to run a marathon, grow my hair out without coloring it.
Career: Earn a raise, switch to an industry I care about, decrease hours spent at theoffice.
Relationships: Go out on a date night once a week, spend time each day checking in with someone I love, set new boundaries for energy-stealing friendships.
Personal: Feel at peace within myself, learn how to speak up for myself, become less judgemental.
Your goals should lead you in the direction you want your life to go. Think about where you want to be in 5 years, 10 years, 15 years. What are the steps that need to be taken to get you there? Those steps are your goals.
