I don't know what the weather looks like in your neck of the woods but where I am, every day is a snow day! I love it! Walking in the snow, snowshoeing, and making snow angels (Yes! I am five years old all over again.) Before the snow fell, I had the pleasure of having one last snow-free bike ride with my husband on some trails. Guess what happened? I fell off my bike...again! Remember when that happened to me in the summer?
Quite honestly, I was scared this time. I didn't have enough speed heading uphill and then I started to roll back until I fell sideways partly off my bike yet still straddling it. I landed on some cut trees and branches which stopped me from tumbling down the embankment. I actually screamed the words "HELP!". Interestingly, much like the last time, I jumped up (as fast as the pain would allow), dusted myself off, checked for bleeding and got back on my bike. As we continued riding, I was reflecting and thinking more about the future. What will be my biggest win in 2020? My biggest lesson in 2020? What will I bring to 2021? I had a host of questions!
It really had me thinking about reflecting on your goals. Goal setting at work is usually a structured process that doesn't necessarily account for the human behavioural element of setting and achieving our goals. Have you ever tried that process to set goals for your life outside of work? How did it go? Did you find it effective and engaging?
What if you had an easy to use template that factors in more than writing down your goals and your timeline to complete them? One that provides an approach that considers how humans achieve habit changes.
Guess what I have underway?
I'm taking my tried and true approach to goal setting and achievement and packaging it to share with you! Use it for your big, hairy, audacious goals or for the smaller yet still important goals. Start thinking about 2021 because it's right around the corner and so is your new template! Spread the word. 2020 may go out like a lion but you're going to make sure 2021 comes in like a lion but on your terms!
