I’ve not had huge amounts of time, this Christmas period, to myself, to be alone and definitely not had any time for a retreat to plan my goals for 2015.
So, over the last few weeks, over lots of cups of tea, I have carved out periods where I’ve sat, thought and prayed about 2014 and 2015 and how I can make it a focussed year. (And hopefully archive more of my goals than I did in 2014!)
So how do I do it?
1: I break my life down into key areas Faith, Health, Relationships (marriage, parenting and others), Mind, Home, Hobbies, Admin, Business and Japan/SE Asia.
2: I wrote down a goal for each of the areas. It is rather generic, not specific, but that comes next.
3: Set targets on how I can achieve the goal, while creating a reading list specific for the goal.
4: Allocate the targets to a month. A lot of the targets were about creating routines or habits so life ran more smoothly. This required me to allocate them to a month so I am spreading them out over the year and aren’t trying them all at once.
5: Create a weekly planning sheet, so my targets can be in front of me on a daily basis, but also have tick boxes to ensure that I keep my habits into being habits.
So that is how I created my goals.
Next time, I’ll share some of my goals with you.
