Setting Goals -- Then and Now



If you are like me, sometime in the past you learned to set goals either personal, business or both.  For me it was a difficult task and I came to it later in life. I had to practice and get a lot support around doing it.

Some of us had parents who taught us goal setting in the family.  We may have been taught well or harshly.  Perhaps we were  rewarded or punished for the results.  Perhaps we handed these ways of goal setting down to our own children. 

These days I find my goal setting is less and less difficult and more and more I set very short term ones.

What about you?  Have your goals become more realistic as you've aged?  How did you learn to set goals and do you still do it and if so around what? What place do goals serve in your life now? How have your goal setting habits evolved over time?

Let's look at Goal Setting Then and Now. Did you set any goals for yourself 10 or more years ago for this time in your life now?  Have they come into being? Are you still setting goals for the future?

I think we can have a good discussion around this topic of Goal Setting Then and Now.  At least I have a goal to dig into it for myself.

    great group discussion today. When I returned home I found this post on FB. It seems to fit with our discussion. There is a video with the post, so you will have to go to his FB page to see it.

    This 5-minute reflection on "effectiveness and faithfulness" is related to my last post on the violence of over activity.

    We live in a culture that's constantly asking, "How effective are you? Are you getting results and getting them NOW?" Of course, I care about being effective. But when that's our only standard—when we become obsessed with quick results—we start pushing the river and wearing ourselves down. Worse still, we start taking on smaller and smaller tasks, because they are the only ones with which we can get immediately measurable outcomes.

    I really enjoyed our conversation today & the different perspectives. It helps me to clarify my own thinking about purpose, intention, living in integrity etc.

    I attend so sporadically, I am not sure if any of these have been addressed:
    1 The role/importance of maintaining long-time friendships
    2 Spirituality in the Third Trimester
    3 New definitions of "fun".
    Looking forward to see folks!

      We have talked about friendships but over a year ago now fun was another time but worth revisiting spirituality could be intriguing. Thx gee gee c u soon
