[CHAT]: Goals and Goal-Setting

So, goals are good. We get told it from our school, by our parents and by society all the time.

We get told that life is a simple progression from setting, goals, achieving those goals, and then setting new goals. Achieving goals guarantees success, and success guarantees happiness, right?

But, what happens if you don't succeed in your goals? What happens if your goals aren't the same as the goals that other people want for you? Arguably, goals are important, but what happens if you develop an unhealthy relationship with them? What if you set too much? Or too little?

How do you make goal-setting work for you, and not against you?

 

Join us next Monday, 17th July at A NEW TIME OF 7:30pm AEST To have a chat about all things goal-related. We hope to see you there! Smiley Happy

Re: [CHAT]: Goals and Goal-Setting

Now for the first question. What exactly is a goal anyway?

Hi everyone!!!

Hi everyone,

I'll be in and out as I am cooking dinner Smiley Very Happy 

 

What exactly is a goal anyway?

To me, a goal is something I want to achieve in my life and the steps I will take to achieve that goal. It is more than just an outcome of something, it is a process. It is a process I use in everyday life to help organise myself and manage things as they come. A goal is something that helps me keep perspective and purpose. It can be big or small, and it can be short or long. To me, a goal is something I desire for myself or it is something I am required to do.

What is a goal?

 

To me it's aligning my passions/interests with an outcome. Small steps, building blocks. The best thing about a goal is the process and the journey is actually the fun part. The outcome is the trophy at the end Smiley Happy

What exactly is a goal anyway?

 

A goal is something i aim to achieve and is used to break it down if it's too dissicult to do with just one or two steps.

What exactly is a goal anyway?

A goal is an objective that you take steps to achieve. It could be small, like, 'I'm going to smile at one stranger everyday for a week.' It could also be big, like, 'I'm going to take over the world *evil laugh*.' Achieving a goal can also take different amounts of time depending on what it involves.

Re: [CHAT]: Goals and Goal-Setting

Hi sorry I'm late.


For me a goal is something I work towards achieving. Whether it be something big or small it's something I want for my future, something I have to work to get.
