The Power of Goals

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:

  1. Financial
  2. Physical
  3. Personal Development
  4. Family
  5. Spiritual
  6. Social
  7. Career

As you work on these areas, here are a few things to remember when setting your goals. Goals must be:

  1. Specific
  2. Measurable
  3. Your own
  4. Set with a time limit
  5. Written down
  6. 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.
