Goal setting can be fun. Yet there is a conflict in setting goals which can lead to a loss of balance – family goals can have an impact on career and so on.
The sheer act of contemplating primary goals for the various facets of your life then writing those goals down often provides a enormous amount of clarity and focus. It sometimes creates an almost mysterious clarifying beacon that helps to focus effort and energy. The more focus on your goals, the more likely they are to materialize.
The most clever systematic approaches are often the most simple.
Foundation areas of your life to consider goals for are:
- Values and beliefs
- Social Contribution
And there are other experiential areas as well, such as travel, entertainment, and arts and culture.
I recently was invited to participate in and contribute to the Beta of a new goal setting tool called LifeGoalBoard created by a friend of mine, Michael Field. Michael is a very successful marketer in Sydney, Australia, and attributes part of his success in achieving a balanced and fulfilled life to using the process contained within LifeGoalBoard. It makes for an interesting story to find out how it was created, how it is used, what results have come out of it, and why Michael is keen to share it.
As a master practitioner in NLP, Michael has been developing some neat concepts and tools which will be available in LifeGoalBoard that will help people achieve their goals.
