With 2017 right around the corner, it’s about that time to start creating a NEW set of goals and a matching game plan that will help us achieve them. Or maybe it’s time to take a different route, instead of writing up a 1 year plan, 5 year plan, or 10 year goal plan; it’s time to think about goals we want to accomplish throughout our life time! Now it doesn’t mean go overboard and start naming insanely rigorous things such as “Finding out the Krabby Patty Formula” You might need to come up with some thing more realistic, more like S.M.A.R.T goals, And by S.M.A.R.T I mean….
S – Specific (Be clear about what you want to achieve and anything that comes with it.)
M – Measurable (Establish criteria to keep track of progress and reward yourself)
A – Attainable (Plan your steps and time frame)
R – Realistic (Ask yourself, Can I really make this happen?)
T – Time based (Establish a concrete time frame in which your goal can be reached!)
This way you are in charge and can hold yourself accountable for the things you do not do and REWARD yourself for the things you did do and the milestones you reach!!!!!
Now that we have S.M.A.R.T well-defined and out of the way! It’s time to create that list. This list came easy to me seeing as how I have many goals and dreams I want to accomplish during my time on this Earth, but don’t worry I narrowed it down. You’ll find below three of my ultra life goals, in no specific order!
Goal #1 – Live in a different country!
So, how great would it be to wake up in bed in a different COUNTRY!!! Really great that’s how it would be. Every since I was a little girl I knew it was a bigger world out there for me to see outside of Philadelphia, which is where I was born and raised. I love it here don’t get me wrong, but I can’t wait until I have the right opportunity to LOVE another place and call it home. I am intrigued by having a different government, being around different people, driving different cars, adjusting to different work environment, all that golden stuff I want to witness. Denmark is first on the list!!!!
Goal #2 – Become Internet famous!
Now, there is not many people I know who don’t want to be rich and famous! Including myself, I am hungry for the fame because I have a bigger message to spread to others and I know with a large following I can follow more of my dreams while helping others begin to go for their as well.
Goal #3 – Build my own cat/animal playhouse!
This may sound bizarre to some, but to my fellow animal lovers especially my cat people should understand why I want to make this dream in to a reality. Imagine walking in to a yard or playhouse full of cuddly creatures who want to do nothing but love you, yeah see that is a real goal of mine. I want to foster homeless cats, I believe all animals deserve a home and I want to be the first one to provide it to them granted I have the space. I figured if I create a safe haven just for animals I should have more than enough space!
Well, that’s enough about me… What about you guys? Think long and hard about it, what are three S.M.A.R.T goals you want to achieve within your lifetime?
