Goal Setting. Do you set goals? If you do, are they long term? Short term? A combination?
At the beginning of each year I set goals. Sometimes, I also revisit these goals around my birthday in June.
But, on a day-to-day strategic level, I don’t necessarily put much focus on my “big goals”. AND . . . until taking the Holistic Time Coaching class taught by Julie Gray and Denslow Brown I don’t think I realized this!
One of the best decisions I made on a professional and personal development level was to enroll in this class. If you’ve missed any of the previous posts detailing my learning – feel free to jump back:
In my previous post about task management, I explained the disconnect I had with my medium range projects that were not deadline driven. These projects could sit in my “Project Folder” or in their individual folders forever. Out of sight, out of mind. I didn’t really have a plan for moving them forward to completion.
I realized I had a similar gap with achieving my goals. I’d write goals. I’d rewrite goals the next year. Often I’d create some action steps. But, then I’d get caught up in my day-to-day tasks and priorities and lose sight of the big picture.
