3 Tips for Setting Goals in Life

We too have a goal to provide your best experience living at any of our properties. We recognize that during these trying times, we want to offer security along with comfort for all our residents. If you are feeling a little bit down or depressed, one of the things that can help you to get back on your feet and come out on top is setting a few goals for your life. You do not have to set massive goals that take several years to achieve – you can create small goals or a mixture of smaller and larger goals. Goal setting can really help you to feel like you have a purpose and that you are progressing in your life, so here are some tips to get you going.
- Create different types of goals
Rather than thinking about the ultimate goal or the one thing in life that you really want, such as buying a mansion or owning a yacht and sailing the Mediterranean, you should make your list a series of both short-term and long-term goals. While you might want to be earning a certain salary by the time you’re 40, you should also create smaller goals that you can work on in the meantime. This also means that rather than having one huge mountain to climb and therefore only one success to celebrate, you can achieve many different things, building your confidence and keeping you enthusiastic along the way.
- Be disciplined with yourself
Put something in your calendar or discipline yourself to set new goals at the start of every month (or every year). At the start of the year, you could create individual goals for each month, as well as a goal to achieve after six months and then a further goal for the end of the year. At the start of each month, take five minutes to review the goals that you set, see how far you are progressing to achieving them and add any new goals which you think would be good.
- Find a friend
Setting goals with friends is often more fun that doing it alone. As well as your own personal goals that you can talk about together if you like, you can also give each other ideas for new goals as well as keep each other accountable and just make the whole experience a little more fun. You might even want to decide on goals to work on together. While it often works well in small groups, there is nothing wrong with getting a larger group together and working on a project.
