Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
I set yearly goals each year. Last year I achieved most of them. This year I was on track. But then…you know the rest of the story. Covid-19 has put a damper on a lot of things, particularly now that it is back. But the goals I have set that Covid didn’t disrupt are all on track.
Setting goals gives us direction. They require us to decide about what we want to achieve. Once we’ve done this, however, we are on autopilot.
If you’ve never set goals before, just keep in mind the SMART acronym. This acronym stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time bound. If you’d like to read about it and watch a short video, here is the link.
I think the most important benefit I receive when I set a goal is the ability to see where I am and how to finish the rest of the journey. Try it out. You won’t be sorry.
Here is my week:
Physical – I will concentrate on shoulders this week. Every day I will exercise shoulders and do nothing else (See workout routine)
Mental – Learn, read, write, and journal
Spiritual – read my Bible, do my spiritual exercises, do my discourse work, and share my goodwill to all
Social – post uplifting quotes and articles to my social media feeds, interact with friends and family wherever possible
That’s it for today, folks. Have a great Monday!
Until next time…
