When I hear people speak about their goals, they are usually only talking about how much money they want to make, or how much weight they want to lose. How about having a more balanced approach - a more holistic approach to goal setting?

How about focusing on eight areas instead of only two?

Below are the eight areas and some brief definitions. Something that you'll notice is that you have to be very specific when setting goals.

  1. Financial - EXACTLY how much money are you looking to earn? How to you plan to go about doing that? Via your job, your business, selling stuff on eBay, etc.? WHY do you want this money? What will you do with it?

  2. Physical - EXACTLY how much weight or inches are looking to lose? How will you go about doing it? Explore your options, then commit to sticking to your game plan.

  3. Business - EXACTLY how much money are you looking to make? Don't sell yourself short, but be realistic. If it is a sales goal, how many new customers and or distributors (if you're an MLMer), ordering how much volume do you need to achieve this goal? What face-to-face networking groups are you going to visit with? Do you have a BlitzTime account yet? Are you going to get those premium qualified leads by signing up with Salesconx?

  4. Family - What are you going to do special this new year with your significant other, your children, and other love ones? If it is a trip, when are you going on this trip?

  5. Recreation - It is said that all work and no play will make one a dull person, so what are you going to do for fun this new year?

  6. Spiritual - Do you belong to a house of worship, or do you belong to a community service organization? If you don't give, you generally will not get. That is how the law of attraction works, so go become a 'go giver'.

  7. Career - Are you looking to get a promotion at your current job or looking to make a change in the new year? What are you going to do to prepare yourself? When are you going to update your resume? Are you on LinkedIn? Have you been asking co-workers and clients to recommend you on LinkedIn? Recommendations are key. What job fairs and networking events are you going to go to?

  8. Education - I believe it was Aristotle who said that it is man's (and woman's) responsibility to educate their soul. What are you going to do increase your knowledge in the new year? Are you going back to school? What workshops and seminars are you going to attend? Any audio and/or video programs on your shopping list? What topics are your interested in and what books are you going to read on said topics?
I hope that this gives you something to think about when setting goals for the new year - make sure to balance your scales.

All the best,

Tyrone Turner
