It’s hard to believe that we’re on the eve of closing out yet another year. Did you achieve all that you wanted to achieve in 2015? Did you come into this year with solid goals in mind? Were they written down or just floating around in your mind as a fleeting desire and not a real goal?
The big picture is essential to determining your priorities. If you don’t know where you’re going then any road will take you there. Franklin Covey coined the phrase begin with the end in mind. In the spirit of that saying, I would like to encourage you to zoom all the way out to the end of 2016.
Pretend it is now December 31, 2016, what goals have you accomplished? What top three significant things would you have accomplished in the following areas of your life: Financial, Career & Business, Fun Time, Health & Fitness, Relationships, Personal & Mental, and Contribution.
Peter Drucker said “Long range planning does not deal with future decisions, but with the future of present decisions.” We have two days left in this year. Take some time over the next couple of days and mark your path.
Goal setting is important because it determines what is important to you and enables you to make decisions to support your priorities.
