Tip #5 from my new "Grab Your Goals" coaching program is selecting the top 4 of your one-year goals to focus on during a structured goal program. (Message me if you're interested and we'll talk).
What 4 goals will have the biggest impact on a change or shift in your direction toward what you REALLY want? In my program, I guide clients to goal achievement through multiple focus areas.
An important area is discovering your "BIG WHY" or having a BIG enough reason to keep going and keep motivated. Working with exercises around your BIG WHY is critical to having a vision and direction. Without that, trying to accomplish "goals" can be a confusing and frustrating time-waster!
Clarifying your BIG WHY gets your subconscious mind involved and, without that, you are working on only half your available cylinders.
Next up: Having a big enough reason. Steering your actions—your hows— by your BIG WHY.
I was intrigued from the first moment I read the bold claim accredited to Socrates that "the unexamined life is not worth living" and it has been a touchstone throughout my life. And, through the power of hindsight, I see its influence powering many of my career choices and life activities.
