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 taking baby steps.
Today we are going to tackle getting you inspired by the goals of the your family! 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 Would Your Friends Have?
Think about the things you’d like to do with your life, but have been too afraid to even write as a goal because you were sure they were pipedreams. I challenge you to write down the most impossible goals you have today and really think seriously about them.
1.) What Goals Would Your Friends Have For You?
Are your friends always bugging you to apply to that new job? Are they cheering you on to pursue your dream career? Do your friends wish you were healthier so you could do Soul Cycle together? Think about the concrete goals your friends would like for you to have. And remember, if you don’t know, that’s definitely a sign it’s time to take them out to coffee and chat about your future plans together! Maybe you can even talk about this #GetGoals series you are doing? (Yep, shameless self promotion thrown in there. It happened.)
2.) What Goals do Your Friends Have For Themselves?
Maybe your friends aim to move up the ranks in their job, or they want to do more networking and hopefully get in touch with an expert in their field. You could do that too. Or they want to start running, or travel to every state in the country, or learn how to speak a new language. Think of the goals they have for themselves, and get inspired for yourself! Again, if you don’t know what they’d like for them self, set a date and time to hang out together and compare notes on your ideas for your future- it’s been too long since you’ve had a hang out anyways.
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?
