2015 Goals- My 5 Step Process for creating them.

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.

About Cheryl

I am a child of God, a wife and a mother of 4 children. Some days are good. Some days are frustrating. Some days are just plain insane. In between the mayhem, I loved to go for walks with our mutt, potter in the garden and enjoy the beauty that surrounded us. That all changed in August 2012 when we waved goodbye to our mutt and garden, our eldest at Uni in Gloucester and moved to Tokyo for 4 months. And yes- we are still here...
