Goal Setting Formula

Smart Goals

I recently learned a helpful Goal Setting Formula/Recipe:-) I am sharing below in case anyone needs it:

I + Present Tense Action + Specific Goal + Timeframe + How it will make you feel to complete the goal

Here’s an example…

Scenario:
I needed to set a goal that I could complete on or before my last Coaching Circle for school on April 12th. In school we have a tool called the Circle of Life (see below photo). It’s broken into 12 categories. Our Coaching Circle (classes) last six weeks.

Goal:
Define what fulfillment looks like in each area of the Circle Of Life by April 12th.

Circle Of Life

Here is my goal in the formula:

I

+

Will define (present tense action)

+

What fulfillment is for myself for each category of the Circle of Life by completing 2 per week for six weeks. (specific goal)

+

I will define fulfillment for all 12 categores of the Circle of Life by April 12th. (timeframe)

+

I will feel clear. Having clarity on what fulfillment means to me in each area gives me a benchmark for comparision as well as something to strive towards. It’s a reminder of what I need be fulfilled. It’s act of self care and self love.

All together now…

I will define what fulfillment for myself for each category of the Circle of Life by completing 2 per week for six weeks. I will define fulfillment for all 12 categories of the Circle Of Life by April 12th. I will feel clear. Having clarity on what fulfillment means to me in each area gives me a benchmark for comparision as well as something to strive towards. It’s a reminder of what I need be fulfilled. It’s act of self care and self love.

How would you define fulfillment in your life?
