The 5 F’s Of Goal Setting

5 F's of Goal Setting

This is a great time of year to think about your goals for next year!  It’s a great time to be introspective.  How did this past year go?  Did you do the things you wanted to do?  Did you move toward your goals? I know…2020 has been tough.  But for me, that’s why setting goals can be exhilarating.  It forces us to think forward…not backward.

But there is one thing that I don’t think we talk about enough when we talk about goal-setting.

If you want a well-rounded life, you should probably have well-rounded goals.  Most of us have goals that center around two areas; finance and fitness.  Though those are both important areas, they are not the only ones.   That’s why I talk about the 5 F’s of Goal Setting. Finance, Fitness, Family, Faith and Fun.  If you want a well-rounded set of goals (and a well-rounded year), this is a good list to start with.

Finance:  This time of goal might center around how much many you want to make, how much you want to save or the sales number you want to achieve.

Fitness:  Do you want to lose 10lbs?  Want to run a half marathon?  Maybe you just want to improve your diet.  These are all great and they fall here.

Family:  This is the place where I remind myself that I want to spend time with those that I love.  Do I want to have a date night with my bride?  Do I want to do something specific with my girls?

Faith:  Do you want to give more?  Do you want to get involved and volunteer?  How can you make an impact in this are?

Fun:  Yes…I think this area is important too.  And it’s great if a few of these might overlap.  For example, if you want to take a great family vacation, that might cover two of the five “f’s.”   This is not a comprehensive list.  But it’s a great start to getting you thinking about creating a year that you will be excited to live.

Now let’s get them on paper!

Embrace Uncomfortable Conversations

Embrace Uncomfortable Conversations

I heard recently that "a person's capacity for growth is directly related to their willingness to have uncomfortable conversations." I wish I could remember where I heard that...because it struck me.  And it struck me, because like so many people, I often avoid them. ...

It Was A Tough Day

Friday was a tough day in Coshocton County. In addition to the challenging personal times we are living through (and there are more than I care to list here), it was a heavy day.  It started with sirens wailing around town and I texted my wife and daughters to make...

What if today was the day you broke through? You have been working in this sales job for months.  Or maybe you have been creating content for a year.  But on many days, it feels like no one cares.  You are doing what "the experts," tell you to do.  But it feels like...

3 Levels of Achievement

"The greatest distance in the world is the distance between 'I know' and 'I do.'" This is one of my favorite quotes because it illustrates the idea of "simple and easy."  So many things are simple.  They are just not easy.  In other words, we know what to do.  We just...
