Long Term Goal Setting

These questions are designed for your thinking to be stimulated to identify your personal goals.

Spend some time with  these things, and then select one or more goals in each category that best reflect what you want to do. Then consider trimming again so that you have a small number of really significant goals that you can focus on.

As you do this, make sure that the goals that you have set are ones that you genuinely want to achieve, not ones that your parents, family, or employers might want. (If you have a partner, you probably want to consider what he or she wants – however, make sure that you also remain true to yourself!)

The first step in setting personal goals is to consider what you want to achieve in your lifetime. Setting lifetime goals gives you the overall perspective that shapes all other aspects of your decision making.

 Approach the question by first looking at the next five years. The approach could be to imagine what your day would be like in 5 years... what are you doing... how you are being treated.... what is your life like! A big picture story!

If someone was writing an obituary as a tribute to your life what would they say! What would you like them to say? Write it down!

  • Career – What level do you want to reach in your career, or what do you want to achieve?

 

  • Financial – How much do you want to earn, by what stage? How is this related to your career goals?

  • Education – Is there any knowledge you want to acquire in particular? What information and skills will you need to have in order to achieve other goals?

  • Family – Do you want to be a parent? If so, how are you going to be a good parent? How do you want to be seen by a partner or by members of your extended family?

  • Artistic – Do you want to achieve any artistic goals?

  • Attitude – Is any part of your mindset holding you back? Is there any part of the way that you behave that upsets you? (If so, set a goal to improve your behavior or find a solution to the problem.)

  • Physical – Are there any athletic goals that you want to achieve, or do you want good health deep into old age? What steps are you going to take to achieve this?

  • Pleasure – How do you want to enjoy yourself? (You should ensure that some of your life is for you!) Think of travel, experiences and emotions!

  • Community Goals – Do you want to make the world a better place? If so, how?

Shorter Term Goals

Once you have set your lifetime goals, set a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if you are to reach your lifetime plan.

Then create a one-year plan, six-month plan, and a one-month plan of progressively smaller goals that you should reach to achieve your lifetime goals. Each of these should be based on the previous plan.

Then create a daily  to-do list of things that you should do today to work towards your lifetime goals.

At an early stage, your smaller goals might be to read books and gather information on the achievement of your higher level goals. This will help you to improve the quality and realism of your goal setting.

Finally, review your plans, and make sure that they fit the way in which you want to live your life.

 

Make the goals SMART

A useful way of making goals more powerful is to use the S M A R T mnemonic. While there are plenty of variants (some of which we've included in parenthesis), SMART usually stands for:

  • S – Specific (or Significant).
  • M – Measurable (or Meaningful).
  • A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented).
  • R – Relevant (or Rewarding).
  • T – Time-bound (or Trackable).

Write out what you want to achieve in the next 5 years referring to progress towards life goals 

 An approach is to write out what state you want to be in happy secure with a series of milestones that you have achieved.

Write your personal goals for the next year taking reference to your life goals and 5 year goals that you wish to achieve!

What goals do you wish to achieve today,for the next week and the next month!
