Goal Setting


goals in 2015

With just over a week until the new year, I can’t help think about my goals for the new year. I really like setting goals for myself and I like accomplishing them even more :)

When I was younger, my parents would have us look at 4 areas of our life when setting our goals:

  • Mental
  • Spiritual
  • Social
  • Physical

I try to have at least one goal in each category. We have decided to add a “service” category this year as well. I want to try and donate more time to those in need.

I have continued to use these as guidelines and we even began helping our kids set goals for the year. While I didn’t accomplish everything I wanted to this year, I am happy with where I am today.

Do you set goals each year? If so, how do you set goals?

  • This is the first year in a LONG time I have set goals. In the past I wouldn’t even bother because I knew I would break them. Now that I have a passion for running it will be easier to set physical goals. Reaching my physical goals will automatically help with my emotional, social, and spiritual goals as I will be a happier, more confident, and positive person.

  • I am very analytical and literal, so i do mine in fairly concrete terms where I can clearly know whether or not I’ve achieved them, in dimensions of fitness, career, home improvement, church and hobbies. This approach surely has its weaknesses as it precludes some qualitative goals, but it’s how my mind works.
    That said, I’d be interested to see a spiritual resolution. I doubt that it’s a category that fits with my focus on planned achievement, but it might give me some good food for thought.

    • Yeah, my spiritual resolutions tend to be things that I know enhance my spirituality. Whether it be religion focused or educating myself on things related to my spirituality. Best of luck in 2015!
