Recently I listened to an interview with Chalene Johnson, who introduced me to a new idea for goal-setting.
At first I was skeptical, but when I actually went through Chalene’s steps, it worked!
Here’s what she suggested:
1. Set 10 goals.
WHAT? TEN goals? That’s too many, isn’t it?
Trust Chalene. Write down 10 goals across a wide range of areas of your life.
Here are the areas Chalene suggests for your goals:
- Educational (a “get smart” goal — something you want to learn more about)
- Pure joy — something just for the fun of it
- Love life
- Family / friends
- Environment — Meaning where you spend much of your time, such as your home or workplace
- Purpose / profession
- Fitness / nutrition
- Mental wellness — I like to think of this as emotional well-being.
