12 Aug 10 questions to evaluate your goals
The start of a new school year can stir up a variety of feelings – nostalgic memories of back to school shopping and first days, fear of the unknown, excitement for new rhythm and routine, the list goes on and on whether you have school-aged children or not. As we enter this time of the year, we want to continue checking in with your thoughts and feelings about your personal goals.
If you’ve ever wondered if it’s worth working towards a goal or how you would accomplish a particular one, we’ve compiled a list of 10 questions to help you work through the ins and outs of your goals.
- Is your goal for a period of time or a lifestyle adjustment (short-term vs. long-term)?
- Why do you want to achieve this goal?
- Will you be sharing your goal with family, friends, workout buddies, or co-workers for accountability, encouragement, and support?
- What will you need to add or give up in your life to achieve your goal?
- How will your life be different when you achieve this goal?
- Do you have the resources you need to start working towards your goal today?
- Do you have a start date?
- Does your goal move you towards modeling healthy habits for peers and those younger than you?
- On a scale of 1-10 (1 none and 10 a lot), how much time, attention, change and effort will you need to put forth to achieve this goal?
- On a scale of 1-10 (1 not at all and 10 let’s go), how ready are you to make this change?
We hope one or some of these questions are helpful to you! We’d love to hear your answers to some of these questions.
