How Do You Know Which Goals to Set?

It can be so confusing, right?

You’re motivated. You’re driven, and you’re ready to push your limits.

Except you don’t know which goals you should set right now.

As I type this, it’s almost March. The signs of spring are just starting to return, birds are chirping, the sun is shinning and people are feeling the “newness” that comes with Spring.

It can inspire spring cleaning, a desire to eat better and take care of our bodies. Is that a goal you should set?

It can even lead to a search for a new job, new recipes or some “happy” Spring clothes. Maybe your goals should focus on that, shopping for clothes and a new job.

So, how do you know what to go after first?

If you don’t pick just one or two goals at a time, you can make the mistake of trying to tackle several goals at once.

And that, my friend, might leave you feeling frustrated, defeated or even believing that you’re a failure.

Here’s a quick solution I’ve come up with when I get stuck. Here’s how it goes:

Do a quick brain dump before you plan out your next 90 days.

Write it all down.

I like to have 2 columns when I do this: The “Should” do and the “Want” to do.

Under the “Should” list is where things like “exercise” or “more greens” or “prepare for presentation” go. Some of your ideas will fit under both categories. There’s nothing wrong with that, and it probably means that’s a goal you’ll end up pursuing.

Here are a few of my favorite questions to ask once you’ve done that:

It’s 90 days from now, how do I feel?

If I could do anything in the next 90 days, what would I have to show as a result of my hard work?

Does the goal leave me feeling energized and excited?

What makes me happiest, and why?

What inspires me?

What is a reflection of my best self?

Filter your brain dump list through these questions and chances are, you’ll find your one to three top goals that you’ll want to hit out of the park over the next 90 days.

That’s good times in a bag, right there. 😉

Game on girlfriend, game on.
