Well, I guess better late than never. I am just now starting to work on my personal goals for 2009. I’ve been following Dan Miller’s “The Power of Goals” as I begin my process. Their are seven areas in which Dan says we need to focus:
- Personal Development
As you work on these areas, here are a few things to remember when setting your goals. Goals must be:
- Your own
- Set with a time limit
- Written down
- Shared with someone
This is a good starting point if you have not yet set goals for 2009. And, if seven areas is a bit overwhelming, start with just one area and focus your efforts there for a month or two. Then add another area and work on it. As the saying goes, “how do you eat an elephant?” One bite at a time.
