Earlier this week you read this here: The more I learn about long-term goals, the more convinced I am that setting them is key to achieving shorter-term goals as well. It’s impossible to share all the research supporting this idea in one or two blog posts (though I’m happy to share more if asked). If you are trusting enough to take my word for it, let’s dig into some thoughts and questions around setting long-term goals.
Here we go…
What are your long-term goals? How much thought have you given to them? Are they challenging and specific (good goals need to be)?
It’s funny, but when doing a search online I found several sites that said setting long-term goals was more difficult than setting short-term goals. I’m going to challenge that thought. It is easier to see the goals we need to set immediately because we don’t have to take the time to find them within ourselves – what we need to do is right there in front of us. Long-term goals are not hard to set; making the time to set long-term goals is what eludes us.
With that in mind, what would it take for you to make time to vision your future? How can you make it a priority?
There is so much benefit to aligning short-term goals to long-term goals! I hope you are able to make the time to find your future.
