That actually goes for you health, biz and energy coaches and practitioners, too – especially the Right-Brain goals ally I’m going to tell you about!
When anyone says to me that I need to set goals, I literally cringe. Well, I used to. That was before I figured out how to do it my own way.
I thought of a goal as either a big, probably long-term aspiration, or a little soon-to-be-accomplished something. Either way, I’d think of them and feel nuts. Here was this big picture, and I couldn’t encompass it in my mind in a practical way.
I felt like I couldn’t set or accomplish goals, that I was a failure, something must be wrong with me because I didn’t relate to all the goal stuff people taught, how come they can do it but not me….
Then someone pointed out to me that when I was thinking about goals and feeling crazy it was because it was too big a picture. I couldn’t sink my teeth into it and make any progress because I didn’t know where to start.
She told me that I needed to set my goals first, and then go FURTHER and create little steps to take to accomplish them. Then I’d be OK. Because then I could do each step and cross it off my list, and feel satisfied I was making progress. It’s the steps, not the goals, that I need to think about, even though the goal is always in the back of my mind keeping me on track.
THEN! I was introduced to the coolest goals-help I’ve ever seen: the Artist’s Goal Wheel – all in right-brain languageing, colors and steps. You’ll love this if you’ve ever thought of goals and groaned. Check it out here: Artist Goal Wheel
I use it, myself, and thought you’d love it, too. And yes, I get a cut if you buy it – I’ve taken the time and energy to test and try it, and I absolutely do not recommend anything I haven’t tried and liked.
As a matter of fact, I invite you to listen in on my interview with Tara Reed, the artist (and licensing expert) who created the Goal Wheel here: http://idareyouradio.com
Now you know how I’m able to be so ultra productive – I’ve written over 60 books in the past 8 years. How many other people do you know who have? Plus audios, websites, coaching, speaking…do you think goals bother me anymore? Uh unh.
I don’t JUST think of my goals anymore. I hold them clearly in my mind, and then every day I ask myself, “what’s the next step I need to take to get where I’m going?” I guarantee you that using that one question (and Tara’s Goal Wheel!) will get you out of the boghole of confusion and worry faster than any other you can ask.
