Goal Setting – May 2010

 Introduction

I think the picture captures the spirit of this month’s update… running along a lonely patch of highway, a good distance from the start but still a long way from the finish.  I have lots of ground to cover and even some ground to make up.

 How about you.  Are you crushing or cursing your goals?  I’ve been doing a little of both!

 

 Context Setting for New Readers – Welcome! On this site, I’ve invested considerable time sharing, exploring, and refining my approach to goal setting.  I try to outline goals along 8 unique fronts which together help me – as I accomplish my targets – remain rounded and balanced. My eight fields of focus include:Spiritual, Financial, Career, Personal Development, Physical, Family, Social, and Household.I also layer time horizons across each category to ensure I am able execute in the moment while maintaining an alertness in the end game.For 2010, I am incorporating a new facet into my experiment in self improvement – Public Accountability– and that’s what you’ve stumbled into. Please feel free to check out any of my previous articles on this topic for additional context and exploration.      Man in Full     4th Quarter
