What Do You Want To Do This Year?

I will be launching a new service in January 2018 that will help you create clarity around your goals, certainty about what to do, and help you provide a greater impact on your work environment.

In the meantime, I’d like to share a free PDF containing a useful personal prioritization exercise to help you get started.

I hope you can join me on this journey!
Let’s return to comfortable territory. Goal setting!

I find there are two types of goals:

  • Destination Goals:  “By the end of 2018, I will launch my new product and have at least 5 clients.”
  • Process Goals: “I will meditate 15 minutes per day at least 5 days per week this year.”

I use both.

Sometimes, the process goals help move you towards your destination goals.

Example: Destination goal – Lose 25 pounds.  Process goal – Replace my morning latte with water at least 5 days per week.

Sometimes, the process IS the destination.

Example: Meditate 15 minutes per day at least 5 days per week.

There isn’t a particular destination. I keep receiving feedback from my friends that the practice makes me a nicer person to be around.  Better relationships seem like a good enough reason for me to keep meditating.


Today’s assignment:

Free write all of the things you want to accomplish in 2018. 

It doesn’t matter how “ridiculous” or “stupid” or “unrealistic” the goal appears.

Over the weekend – write down anything else that comes up.

We are going to ask some questions about these goals next week.



Michael Hyatt is one of my favorite goal-setting and prioritization gurus.  Two books I recommend if you want a deep dive into this process (both Amazon Affiliate links):

Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want – He walks you through a comprehensive goal-setting process in this book.

Your Best Year Ever: A 5-Step Plan for Achieving Your Most Important Goals – This book provides more immediate and focused guidance for the year.
