Personal Goal Setting - Be clear on the long and the short term
Setting goals connects your long-term vision and short-term motivation so you can focus on what's important in life. Let's just think about that word there, motivation. In order to get properly motivated, and indeed to achieve, it helps to spend some time thinking about your goals and what you want to achieve in life.
That is why here at the Mere Mortals we treasure our goal setting time like a child of ours. It is imperative for us to connect out short-term motivation through to our medium term goals which in the end all tie up to our long-term vision.
Now.. we have talked about this on the podcast quite a bit, if you want to check out those conversations take a look at Episode 4, Episode 33 on medium term goals, Episode 91 on long term goals and then our monthly discussions about our own goals.
This got us thinking, is there a way we can help out more individuals on how to be clear on the long and short term of goal setting? Well - here at the Mere Mortals we won't die wondering and have decided to put together a Goal Setting Template, something to help crystalise our thoughts, which are usually rambles, into a more co-ordinated approach and mindset behind goal setting.
We hope this can prove useful to the Mere Mortals out there, as it combines well over 10,000 hours of combined goal setting knowledge between the Mere Mortals here.
Feel free to download and use as you please. Lastly, we would love to get feedback on this process as it very closely ties with the way we set our own goals, so any improvements that we can also make to it helps us out immensely.
Mere Mortals out.
