Writing Goals

Annual Goals Draft in 10 Minutes

            Congratulations on your courage to write down goals for your life for the year!  Less than 1 in 100 people have the courage to plan their life and write it down.  Less than 1 in 1,000 people work to achieve those goals like Goal Focus. 

Write down your goals to accomplish by December 31st of this year.  Do not be scared.  Do not spend more than 10 minutes on draft annual goals.  Do not think too hard the first time you write goals.  All goals will fit into five categories.  Write goals in that order.  The order is important.  The categories are Health, Relationships, Finances, Business, and Personal. 

            For each category, write 1-5 annual goals.  Be sure your goal is “SMART” – the goal should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely with a deadline for completion, if it is before the end of the year.  State your goal as a positive, not a negative.  State goal starting with phrase “I will...” or equivalent.  In each category is listed an example, to get you started.  Delete the example.  Have about 3-8 items per category but all must fit on one page.

Format the final document as one page with your name at top.  Read it daily.
