Have you ever asked yourself that question? I hope you did and if you didn’t; then here is your chance, because today we are going to talk about goal setting with a twist. Because the word goal does not have such a positive value for me, I’m supplementing it with outcome. Outcome has a whole new ring to it and I like it.
I would like to share my process with you around the subject, so if this is a challenge for you, you can learn from my experience instead of having to go through it yourself. However if you like to learn the hard way, the choice is yours.
Let me give you a heads up when it comes to my relationship to setting outcomes. Setting outcomes used to be a challenge for me. Just hearing the words “Setting Goals” would make the hair on my back stand up. No worries, I don’t have a lot of them. (The hair I mean.) The concept of writing things down in a linear fashion just didn’t appeal to me one bit. I had a lot of resistance towards it. So I simply didn’t do it.
But what I came to realize is, every time I wanted something in my life I would think about it and in time it would end up becoming a reality. Years later, I started reading all kinds of materials about how to get what you want in your life and a lot of these materials were talking about writing things down and how much more powerful that was than just thinking about stuff.
By then I understood that if there is resistance there is learning and I started to look into it. What I came to find out is this: I was trying to apply a technique without being connected to myself. Creating a list out of just intellectual wants is very different than creating something that comes out of being connected to yourself and connected to the bigger picture of your life. In order to do that, I needed to spend some time just with myself. (And that is a challenge for a lot of women entrepreneurs. Sitting still is not one of the top favorite business techniques.)
This was a big revelation for me. So the question now was: How was I going to make this work in the way that was fun, easy, creative, and resonated with who I was?
After trying a lot of different things this is the formula I came up with:
Now you try! Let me know how it goes. Here is to your success!
