Vision Board and Goal Setting 2021
Join us for a year of goal setting! 2021 is your year to make it happen!
The first Wednesday of each month we host a virtual group meeting to discuss goals, celebrate success, address barriers, and help support one another.
Live virtual meetings: 1st Wednesday of each month 7pm-8pm eastern
Our vision board and goal planning guide is included in the purchase of this course.
Each month we will have a theme to support our 2021 goals. January we kick-off with creating our vision boards.
Each week we will have check-ins so we can support one another throughout this exciting journey. You'll also be able to find like-minded friends to network with.
Throw out the New Year’s Resolutions. Studies show the majority of resolutions are never achieved. Instead, create a Vision of what you want in the future. This is a powerful process in clarifying your goals and mapping out your vision into reality.
Vision boards are such a fun and enlightening way to identify your visions for the new year. Use a variety of images, phrases, and words that appeal to you for the upcoming year. (Tip: make the experience even more memorable by inviting your friends over for a special afternoon of solidifying your future desires.)
Once you've created a vision board for this year, it is time to turn your vision into actionable and achievable goals.
The process of setting goals helps you navigate exactly where you want to go in your personal and professional life.
By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know exactly where you have to concentrate your efforts.
The benefits of goal setting can't be argued.
Goal setting is something every successful person and organization completes annually, monthly, and even weekly.
- Achieve More with Focus
- Have Long-Term Vision
- Build on Short-Term Motivation
- Organize Time & Resources
- and Raise Self-Confidence
In this course, we will take a look at your vision board and define the ‘big picture’. What is the one large-scale goal do you want to achieve this year?
Double Check —> Are these goals you want?
You will go nowhere fast if you are working towards someone else’s goal.
There are 5 Principles for setting a successful goal.
Is your goal clear? If you told someone your goal, would it make sense what you want to achieve?
Will this goal challenge you? If it’s too easy, it won’t be rewarding enough for you and if it’s too challenging, you’ll be more likely to give up.
Do you envision yourself really committing to this goal? For example, don’t have a goal that includes giving up chocolate for a year if that’s something you can’t really commit to giving up. Also, be sure you’re able to commit. Committing to moving to a farm out in the country might not be possible if your family doesn’t agree.
Every goal must have some type of feedback loop so you can see progress and document success. This can be measured in time, weight, surveys, financial gains, etc. anything that provides feedback for you so you know that you are reaching your goal successfully.
- Task Completion
Are there tasks or steps you need to take to reach your goal? Can you document that you are completing these tasks to reach your goals?
Once you’ve clarified your goal, it’s time to break your goal or vision into smaller targets to short-term goals.
We will use the worksheet from the Vision Board and Goal Setting Guide to help you break down goals.
Long-Term Goal Example: get in shape, lose weight, and live a healthier lifestyle.
Next, I would break that goal into 3-5 short-term goals to determine what getting in shape, losing weight, and living a healthier lifestyle actually looks like.
- drink more water
- lose 10 pounds
- walk 30 minutes every day
- asleep by 10pm
- eat healthier foods
For each short-term goal I create, I must break it down into a specific goal that can be measured. For example, if I break down my first short-term goal, it may look like this;
- I will drink 48 oz of water daily, or 4 serving of my 12 oz water bottle, once by 10:00 am, another serving by 1:00 pm, again by 4:00 pm, and lastly by 8:00 pm. I will set a reminders on my phone for those times to drink water. I will keep a journal by my bedside to document how many ounces of water I drank that day. I will purchase three more 12oz water bottles to ensure I always have a clean bottle on hand ready to use. I want to achieve this goal because drinking water keeps you looking younger and healthier. This will be an on-going goal. To create my new water habit, I will document my progress for 3 months.
Continue to break down your remaining short-term goals, or stop there and focus on one short-term goal at a time.
It takes 66 days of engaging in the same behavior to make it a new habit, so take your time and focus on what really matters. Above all, every day is a new day.
In this course, we will be supporting and encouraging through all the ups and downs. Best of luck, enjoy the journey, and see you in the course!
