Before setting any goals for yourself, go to a quiet place to think. Make it sacred by your solitude. Ponder to gain understanding. Ask yourself these questions:
Is the goal your own?
Is the goal based on your values?
Is the goal achievable based on your personal strengths?
Is the goal attainable based on current skills you have or do you need other skills?
What does your inner voice say about your goal?
How do you see yourself reaching that goal?
How will you feel when you reach that goal?
Where will you write or announce your goal?
How will you share the vision of your goal and with whom?
How will you track your progress in reaching your goal?
How will you adjust when you need to change course or face obstacles reaching your goal?
When will you know you’ve reached your goal?
How ready are you to make your goal SMARTER?
