Today’s post in the goals series aims to help you get “The Maximum Lifestyle” that my blog stands for by getting you pointed in the right direction with the help of goals tailor made to what you want to do in your life. Don’t worry if you don’t have any goals ready to go- that’s the whole point of the series!
Whether your goals are for this week, this year, this decade, or your whole life, the only way to start working towards goals is to make sure you have some in the first place. That’s where I come in. This series is to help you think about what goals you might want to have in the first place- because the best way to start with something is by doing first things first.
Today we are going to tackle getting you inspired by the goals of the world around you via the internet! We’ll take baby steps in this series, and by the end of the series you’ll have finished the first step to getting the future and career you dream of. Let’s get started!
What Goals do Others Have?
Get out in the world and get inspired by it. Most people don’t create their goals in a vacuum, and you shouldn’t feel pressured to create yours from scratch. Use other’s goals as a starting point for deciding on your own goals!
1.) Check Social Media
Look through hashtag goals. You’ll find a plethora of other people’s goals on everything from their friendships, romances, homes, and pets to even more serious goals like their careers!
2.) Surf The the Web by Topic
What categories do you want goals for? Look through blogs, instagrams, and other posts that are just in general about careers, dating, homes, families, and any other goals you might have. Be sure to take time to look up goals about being a friend as well, it’s all too easy to drop the ball on that one as you go through adulthood!
3.) Write down your thoughts!
Keep your phone or a notebook handy whenever you do your brainstorming. After spending so much time looking up goals, it’s important to sit down and keep track of them. How else are you going to later go through your list and narrow down potential life goals to just the goals you actually want?
If all you can do is think up a goal for yourself for just this week, great! If you want to make a goal for the direction your whole life is going to go in, you’ll want to do more thinking than just this one brain storm session, but you might have an idea or two of what you want from your future- so be sure to write them down so you can personalize them later!
