You Are Here
Imagine you’ve just passed through the entry gates to a Disney theme park. Since we’re using our imagination, also imagine that you feel fit, healthy, and full of energy. You want to see as much as possible in the time available.
The first thing you notice is that the entry path splits off in several directions. The multiple signage arrows point to Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Adventureland and more. The options are endless, the shows and parades look dazzling, and because of all that’s offered, you feel a bit overwhelmed.
How can you make the most of your day?
You’d likely use a map. In fact, the first thing handed to every guest at the gate is a map of the park and a schedule of the shows and parades. You can make educated choices as to what you’d like to see and highlight what’s important.
Let’s take this example to the next level. Imaging flying abroad to a foreign country. Would you consider getting off the plan without first having some sort of plan? Even if you’re a fan of spontaneity, you’d likely plan the basics such as lodging and transportation. Advance planning can be the key to success in any adventure.
The Adventure of Life: Holding on to a Map or Happenstance
Many of us weren’t taught goal-setting skills in school. If we learned them at all, it may have been later in life through a business setting. It’s understandable that goals can be very effective and productive at work. But what about personal goals?
Is your healthy future as important as your business future?
We don’t often give our personal goals the same amount of attention or emphasis as we do other areas in our lives. We tend to overcomplicate things and say that it would take too long or would be too hard.
Writing out our personal health goals doesn’t have to be all that complicated. When my clients discuss New Year’s Resolutions, they typically mention negative or unwanted behaviors. They talk about wanting to stop eating sweets, lessen their tendency to overeat, stop procrastinating, or stop being a couch potato.
There are better ways to create a positive focus.
I don’t view goal-setting as only a “January thing.” And, I don’t refer to them as resolutions. I’m not looking for resolve in myself or for my clients. I’m looking to set a simple and easy-to-follow plan.
Because this is so crucial to a healthy outcome, it’s not uncommon for me to spend quite a bit of time with clients on this subject. Together, we establish clear and concise goals.
This can make all the difference in the world.
