Setting Goals Driven by Passion
Passion is the key
Setting goals is is a fairly simple process. I'm sure you've heard of setting SMART goals.
- Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant & Time bound.
And whilst in principle, this does work. The problem I have encountered again and again with myself and my clients is that SMART goals just arent powerful enough. The problem is that this method doesn't tap into the subconscious of WHY you want to achieve the goal in the first place.
So, before you even get to SMART goal setting, you need to understand your WHY. Why you want the goal in the first place? Not just why you want it, but what achieving that goal is going to give you in the long run. Because ultimately we want to hit goals because we believe they are going to make us feel a certain way - perhaps part of a tribe, or loved or successful.
Regardless, understanding this before you set SMART Goals is the key to creating goals that fire you up in such a way you fall in love with the journey as well as the ultimate outcome.
