  1. Goal Setting Terrence Meltz Life & Wellness Coach terrencemeltz@ideallifesolutions.ca www.ideallifesolutions.ca 613-659-4455

  2. What is a goal? • Wikipedia Definition: A goal is an objective, or a projected computation of affairs, that a person or a system plans or intends to achieve • From this definition we can further break goals down to short term and long term goals

  3. Short Term Goals: Short Term Goals are achieved by accomplishing goals in a certain period of time. The period of time will vary from person to person depending on what the goal may be. Short term goals are usually defined in relation to a long term goal. In other words, short term goals are often stepping stones to achieving larger long term goals.

  4. Long Term Goals: Also considered lifetime goals, these are things that you would like to achieve in your lifetime (or at least a distant age in the future). Setting Lifetime goals gives you an overall perspective that helps to shape your decision making.

  5. Short Term Goals Long Term Goals • Pay a bill • Daily to do list • Schedule appointments • Find a job • Call a relative/friend • Create a plan of objectives for the next week, month, year • Career • Financial Stability • Education • Family (marriage/children) • Personal development (including spirituality) • Health • Attitude (is there anything holding you back) • House/environment Examples

  6. Why Set Goals? Imagine driving in a car knowing you need to reach a destination but you have no directions (or GPS) to get there. Where do you go? How do you know where to turn? How do you know when you’ve arrived? Goal Setting is very much like that that analogy. By setting short term and long term goals you are able to have a clear path and direction for what direction you want your life to look like.

  7. Why Set Goals? Setting goals gives you long term vision and short term motivation. It helps you organize your time and your resources. There is also a sense of pride when you have achieved your goal. You will raise your self confidence as you recognize your own potential in accomplishing the goals you set.

  8. How To Set Goals • Create a “Big Picture” for what you would like to accomplish in your life. • Write down all of your goals! 1, 10, 100, 1000. Doesn’t matter how many you have, just WRITE THEM DOWN! Starting a goals journal could help. • Be positive about your goals. It could take 3 weeks to 3 months to train your subconscious to continually try to achieve your goals. When you write down your goals, write them like they’ve already happened.

  9. How To Set Goals • Think of the “Big Picture” as your personal vision statement. • Remember your goals can change. It’s okay to revise your vision in the future. The important thing is to have something written down to strive towards. • Your vision will include your short term goals that are necessary to achieve your long term goals. • Figure 1.1 is a tool I send to my clients to have them create their vision plan. • Figure 1.2 is my own vision plan with regards to my coaching business. This is an actual school assignment.

  10. Figure 1.1 Vision and Goal Setting Work Sheet In the space below, fill in some goals and/or where you would like to be in your life at that time. There’s no length requirement.

  11. Figure 1.2

  12. Writing the Vision Statement Now that we have written down our short and long term goals, it’s time to put those goals into a paragraph. Call this paragraph your personal vision statement.

  13. Writing the Vision Statement • Type this paragraph out, blow it up and print several copies of it. Post your vision statement in several places where you are likely to read it (i.e. fridge, frame it by your front door, locker at work). By seeing your goals in writing, you have a better chance of achieving your goals because you maintain your motivation to make your vision come true.

  14. Now What? • Now that our Vision Statement is done, it’s time to tweak our goals to ensure that they are attainable. We need to ask ourselves if our goals are: Specific M easurable A ttainable Realistic Time framed

  15. Now What? • The SMART acronym is a tool that professionals and coaches use to explain each goal. Because Weight Loss is one of the main issues I address with my clients, I am going to use this goal to give examples of how SMARTworks.

  16. Specific • Goals need to be specific. If we aren’t specific, it is difficult to judge whether we’ve met our goals or not. Make the goal sound juicy. • Example 1: I want to lose weight (not juicy) • Example 2: I want to lose 5 lbs (getting there)

  17. Specific • Example 3: I want to lose 5 lbs. so I can wear my favourite dress again and wow my classmates at my high school reunion by how great I look (that’s juicy). • Example 3 is what you are looking for. Very Specific.

  18. Measurable • Goals need to be measureable. They should have descriptive numbers as to how the goal will be achieved. • Example 1: I will go to the gym (not measurable) • Example2: I will go to the gym 3 times a week to help lose 5 lbs. (measurable)

  19. Measurable • Example 3: I will eat properly (not measurable) • Example 4: I will eat 3 balanced meals and 2 snacks everyday to help lose 5 lbs. (measurable)

  20. Attainable • Ensure that your goals are within reach. It’s great to work hard to achieve them but if you set your goals to high, you increase the chance of failure. They need to be attainable.

  21. Attainable • Example 1: Lose 10 lbs. in a week (not healthy or attainable • Example 2: lose 10 lbs. in a month (attainable and healthy)

  22. Realistic • Your goals need to realistic. It is important to honestly evaluate yourself and your goals. Anything is achievable but you may need to set a series of short term goals in order to achieve your long term goal.

  23. Realistic • Example 1: Let’s say you are a great looking size 10 and you want to be able to fit into a size 6 next week (not realistic) • Example 2: I would like to drop 2 dress sizes in 1 month with the long term goal of being a size 6 (realistic with a short term goal used as a stepping stone to achieve long term goal)

  24. Time Framed • Set a time limit on when you want to achieve your goal. Without a time limit, there is no sense of urgency in achieving your goal. Having a time frame also allows you to measure your progress.

  25. Time Framed • Example 1: You want to lose 10 lbs. (not time framed) • Example 2: You want to lose 10 lbs. in a month (time framed) • Example 3: At the end of week 2 you have lost 5 lbs. (monitoring your progress)

  26. Now You Have The Tools To Set Your Goals, What’s Next? • Determine what you want in life • Once you do that, create your goals. WRITE THEM DOWN! • List your goals starting with long term goals

  27. Establish your list of short term goals that will be the stepping stones to your long term goals • These include monthly, weekly and daily objectives that will move you toward your long term goals • Always remember “SUCCESS IS YOURS”. It may take some dedication and hard work but you can achieve anything!
