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. Be sure to look up the “Career” category at the top of the main page or the “GetGoals” tag all of the posts have if you want to go through this series from the beginning.
Today we are going to tackle getting you inspired by the goals of the people of your culture! 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. I know it seems as if we’ve covered loved ones with Inherit Goals and Crowdsource Goals, but this one covers new ground, I promise. Let’s get started!
What Goals Would Your Culture Inspire?
Think about the goals your culture and background would inspire in you.
1.) What Goals Would Your Culture Have For You?
Whether it be your ethnicity, your home country, your current country, or your religious or political identities, think about what goals your culture would want of you. You don’t have to follow these goals, but it’s a good way to get some inspiration.
2.) What Goals do Other Members Have For Themselves?
What goals would other members of the various cultures you are part of have for themselves? What goals would they have at this age, or at future ages you will eventually reach? Are there decade milestones that are important to members of your community? Write them all down.
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?
