Take as long as needed to list 100 goals.
Place the corresponding letter next to each goal or in the column labeled Goal Area if using the downloaded goal-setting template.
Less than three years (3)
Less than five year (5)
Less than 10 years (10)
Less than 15 years (15)
Less than 20 years (20)
Place the corresponding time next to each goal.
For example, I live a Godly life every day starting now. I am in the process of driving a Cadillac CTS-V every day starting June 5, 2011.
Now state your reason why?
For example, I live a Godly life every day starting now because doing so is what I need to become in order to get everything I want from my Heavenly Father. In addition, I will become a wiser, healthier, and friendly person. People will start to naturally attract to me, and will seek wisdom from me. Also, by living Godly, I will be able to help a lot of people achieve their dreams.
Continue this for each goal. If your purpose does not seem strong to you then pick another goal. A weak why yields a failed goal.
Step 2: Action PlanCongratulations! At this point of the goal setting worksheet you have written great goals, a reason why and a commitment date. Now, it is time to develop an action plan. The action plan is a continuous developing plan. So do not stress on not having every detailed worked out. Your plan will evolve into a detailed plan over time. The good thing about writing down your action plan is you now have a record to share with others, which may choose a similar goal as you.
Write at least three immediate activities you can do to get closer to achieving each goal.
When you complete an activity replace it with another activity until the goal is achieved.
Step 3: Share Your Goal with a FriendCongratulations! You have completed step 2 of the goal setting worksheet. Now, it is time to add accountability to your goal. When you share your goal and activities with a supportive friend, it provides pressure for you to get it done. I say supportive friend because you don’t want someone to put negative thoughts in your head that make you give up on the goal. It is already tough enough.
Pick a friend and or family member that is going to be supportive and share your goal and immediate action plan.
