The Best Self Journal is all about setting goals – and helping you achieve those goals. It’s a great tool that can really help you focus on what’s important and the steps to get you there.
However, one question that comes up a lot is how to set goals using the Best Self Journal. In this short video, I went through a few examples (weight loss) and some of the common problems that we have:
- The “blank page” syndrome
- Not being confident
- Unsure where to start
Good news – there’s several solutions to each of these and one of the best ways to get back any writer’s block or uncertainty is to start writing down your goals or what you think might be good goals on a piece of paper.
Once you’ve got a good list down, you can start to narrow down your focus to the top 1 – 3 goals.
Why so few?
The last thing you want to do is spread yourself thin and not achieve any of the goals.
Now, I’m not saying to not challenge yourself, but if you’re getting started with the Best Self Journal, follow the “SMART” guide for goals:
- Time Bound
Time for some more good news – the Best Self Journal is set up so that you create goals that are “SMART” just by filling out the goals section!
It’s a great exercise and over time you’ll begin to think more along these lines when setting goals or considering projects.
