We all know that setting goals is important, but did you know that only 3% of the population actually puts their goals in writing? So many of us don’t realize how important goals can be as we continue to move through life. Setting goals is a process that changes over time. The goals you set in your twenties will most likely be very different from the goals you set in your forties. Regardless of your age, what matters is that you continually revisit your life goals and work to update them.

Lindsey will explain how to evaluate your current and desired state using a life wheel exercise. Then she will guide you through setting SMART goals and how to break down a SMART goal using a mind map tool. In conclusion, real change only occurs when we make personal behavior changes. Being intentional and setting goals help trigger new behaviors, guide your focus and help keep you motivated. As the expression goes, you can’t manage what you don’t measure and you can’t improve upon something that you don’t properly manage. Setting goals can help you do all of that and more!
