What is Personal Goal Setting?

Personal goal setting is important because it helps us move toward getting what we want out of life.  Without goals, we move aimlessly and often let circumstances, events, and other people make our choices for us. 

We only have so much time, energy, resources, and love to give.  If we do not have a direction, these resources become fragmented and diluted.  Time goes by, but we don’t get what we want. 

We find ourselves in the same mundane job, in the same mediocre relationship, living in the same uninspiring place, and doing the same lackluster activities.  Or even worse, we find ourselves bounced from task to task with no purpose or direction.

As a Mid-Life Renewal Coach, I help my clients continuously make goals and action plans to move toward getting what they want in life.  The plans they make help them spend their time, energy, and love in ways that create joy and meaning.  They also create accountability for themselves so that they continue to follow the path toward their dreams, even when events, circumstances, and people try to pull them off the path. 

Let’s work together today to create some career and business goals and some lifestyle and life structure goals that will start you on your way toward getting what you want.
