You’re motivated. You’re a driven woman, and you’re ready to push your limits and reach for the sky.
Except you don’t know which goals you should set right now. I know this doesn’t apply to everyone, but bare with me here.
As I type this, it’s almost March. The signs of spring are just starting to return, birds are chirping, the sun is shinning and people are feeling the “newness” that comes with Spring. It can inspire spring cleaning, a desire to eat better or take care of our bodies. It can even lead to a search for a new job, new recipes or some “happy” Spring clothes.
So, how do you know what to go after first? That’s a big list in that paragraph there, and trying to tackle all of those at once can lead to frustration, a feeling of defeat or failure.
My suggestion is to do a quick brain dump before you plan out your next 90 days. Write it all down. I like to have 2 columns when I do this: The “Should” do and the “Want” to do.
Under the “Should” list is where things like “exercise” or “more greens” or “prepare for presentation” should go. Some of your ideas will fit under both categories. There’s nothing wrong with that, and it probably means that’s a goal you’ll end up pursuing.
Here are a few of my favorite questions to ask when looking for my next 90 day adventure:
It’s 90 days from now, how do I feel? Am I proud of myself?
If I could do anything in the next 90 days, what I have to show as a result of my hard work?
Does the goal leave me feeling energized and excited?
What makes me happiest, and why?
What inspires me?
What is a reflection of my best self?
Filter your brain dump list through these questions and chances are, you’ll find your one to three top goals that you’ll want to hit out of the park over the next 90 days.
That’s good times in a bag, right there. 😉
If you’re up for it, feel free to share your goals in the comments below! I’d also love to know about how this process went for you and what you learned about yourself…
