The majority of people like to write up a huge list of goals and while having lots of goals is great, it also makes it hard for you to achieve them all. Sometimes it is much easier to set goals based upon your life. There are certain areas that you can identify and set goals for. Experts actually recommend setting goals this way as it helps you balance out your life.
Some of the areas of your life that you want to take a look at include your:
- Fitness & Health
- Personal relationships
- Religious beliefs
All of these things combined can help you achieve a balanced and well rounded life. Not just for yourself but for your family as well.
It is best to start with one or two goals in different areas. Remember that creating a balanced life will take time, so don’t rush the progress, enjoy it. Look for the two top areas that you would like to improve first. This could be your health or it could be improving a personal relationship.
If you are still not sure where to start go through each of the points above and write down notes about how you feel. For the education one is there an area that you would like to improve? If you were to improve a certain skill would that help you find a better paying job, or secure that promotion at work?
For the health section are you stiff and sore every morning? Is just getting through each day an effort? How would you feel if you woke up in the morning feeling energized and ready to face the day no matter what? This could be a great way to feel happier about you as well.
Is it time in your relationship to take the next step and get married or start a family. While these can be huge commitments they can also have a huge and wonderful impact on the quality of your life.
When it comes to your finances are you set for your retirement or does this area need some planning? It may be worth looking into saving and investment plans.
When was the last time you enjoyed a vacation with your family or just had some good old fashioned fun with them? Spending quality time with your family is important. It allows you to de-stress and to let your hair down. Why not set a goal this year to have some fun time with your family?
Spiritual and religious beliefs are extremely important for many people. This area can also include forgiving people in your life as well. Maybe you had a falling out with a family member years ago, isn’t it time to make amends and forgive them?
Once you have written out your objectives for each area your next step is to prioritize them. You may want to stop feeling so sore and tired all day so working on fitness and health related goals would be extremely beneficial to you.
Prioritize those areas which hold the most meaning for you and set goals around them. Quite often some of these areas will overlap as well. You may find that working on a financial goal actually helps improve your education at the same time.
Once you start achieving your goals you will notice that your life improves. You will feel happier and so will those people around you. So make this year the time to really do something about changing one aspect of your life.
