Let’s remember to do our annual reflection and complete the following exercise to help us stay on track for the New Year.

Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and Happy New Year!



  • What do I want?
  • Why do I want it? (Why is it important to me?)
  • What am I willing to give up to get it?
  • What is my game plan/how will I get it?
  • What specific knowledge do I require?
  • Who can assist me?
  • What is my time frame?
  • What can I do TODAY to get started?


  1. List ALL of your goals on plain paper.
  2. Categorize the goals into:
    1. Spiritual
    2. Family
    3. Personal
    4. Business
    5. Other
  3. Select the top three goals, place them on goal sheets and work through the remaining seven questions on the goal sheets.

You may complete goal sheets for more than the top three goals, but usually the top three goals feed into accomplishing all of the other goals, so completing goal sheets for all of the goals may not be necessary.
