Determine Your Goals

Douglas Lurton

How do we set goals? We have to know what we want. This might seem like a pretty easy thing, but take a minute and think about it. What do you want? I will give you a second.

So, what is it? Do you want to be: Wealth, Health, Skinny, Educated, Popular, Famous, Beautiful. What is it?

Set micro goals and macro goals. Your macro goals should be the big picture items that you wish to someday accomplish, but your micro goals, are smaller, more achievable goals that will not take as long to achieve. Both need to be measurable and well defined.


My Example:


Macro Goal 1: Have 3 New Hobbies I Enjoy Doing At Least Once A Month

I have hobbies right now that I enjoy like coloring and baking, however I have been wanting to expand my horizons and experience new things, and I believe this is a perfect opportunity to do so. P.S. Starting a blog was a new hobby I tried and I love it.

Micro Goal 1: Research potential hobby ideas until I have a list of 10 that I would like to try.  Here is where I did my research —> LinkLinkLinkLink

(I tried—> yoga, guitar, blogging, photography, reading, Zumba, gaming, making original recipes, and graphic design.)

Micro Goal 2: Try all 10 hobbies with minimal products required for purchase and narrow down to 5 hobbies I would like to try again.

(Winner’s—> yoga, blogging, photography, reading, Zumba, gaming, making original recipes, and graphic design, anyone want to buy a guitar?)

Micro Goal 3: Repeat all 5 hobbies and decide on 3 hobbies I would like to continue pursuing, unless I like more than 3. The more the marryier!

(Winner’s—> yoga, blogging, photography, reading, Zumba, making original recipes, and graphic design, anyone want to buy a guitar?)

Micro Goal 4: Plan one activity for each new hobby and obtain all required products.

Yoga —> Yoga with Adriene ROCKS!!!

Blogging —> You are on it!

Photography —> I have watched a ton of videos from Alpha Creative Skills, read a couple of books and my friend Tasha from The Daily Thyme has given me some great pointers.

Reading —> I have started with Games of Thrones and have finished book one. Suggestions are always welcome for what should be up after I finish the others in the series.

Zumba —> I love live classes or Zumba Fitness World Party for Xbox One

Making Original Recipes —> Check them out here

Graphic Design —> I use BeFunky and Pixlr

Macro Goal Achieved!!!
