What is Your Goal?

What is your specific goal? To come up with your goal, ask yourself the following questions. Take your time and really work at answering these questions:

  • Describe the goal
    • What is it that you need or want to accomplish?
    • On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being most important, how would you rate this goal?
    • What would be the impact on your life if this goal were achieved?
    • How soon do you want to accomplish this?
    • Do you have the resources you need to accomplish this?
    • Is this goal consistent with your values?
    • What do you intend to do/have?
  • Is it a priority?
    • What about it is important to you?
    • Do you want it or does someone else want it for you?
    • You won’t succeed unless it is a priority and something YOU want to accomplish.
    • How committed to the goal are you?
    • What are you willing to do for this priority?
  • Pretend you have succeeded in accomplishing the goal.
    • Take a few minutes, close your eyes, and visualize it. Feel it, smell it, taste it. Do this until you are motivated you that you can do it. Use all 5 senses.
    • How will others regard you?
    • How will you regard yourself?
    • How does it improve your life?


Once you have your goal, write it down and put it somewhere you will see it every day:

I will _________________ by [date] ______________ because [why it is important to you].


You can use the My Goals document to help write out what the goal is and what needs to change.
