Do you go with the flow, so much so that your hopes get lost in the mix?
A client recently told me:
I'm realizing that it's really hard to put goals to the ideas I have. I tend to wait to respond to things and not be proactive, to wait for others and then join accordingly. Goal setting is a muscle I haven't used much before. Coaching is empowering me to make my own decisions.
As a self care coach, a lot of my job is to make space for my clients to slow down and think through what it is they want. To, as my client put it, turn their ideas into goals by exercising their goal-making muscles! Here are some examples of ideas that my clients have turned into goals:
The goals you see above are specific, measurable, and important to the women who made them. If you have an idea you'd like to turn into a goal, here are some questions to consider asking:
What, specifically, do I want?
Where am I in this area currently?
What are all the possible ways I could get to where I want to be?
What will I commit to to reach my goal?
I don't know about you, but when I set a goal, I find it more helpful to talk with an actual person than work it out on my own.
Each month set aside time for intake interview with moms and parents just like you who are ready to turn their ideas into goals.
