“Goals are like magnets. They’ll attract the things that make them come true.”
Years ago, I was challenged by a colleague to look at goals differently.
Instead of looking at a goal through the SMART lens, he suggested using the words “To Be” and “To Have” to express goals as a future and not simply as a way to measure or quantify an outcome.
Since most of us value our health, I propose this example:
|Goal Statement:||To be healthy and fit|
|Measurable Results:||1) To lose 15 pounds by December 31|
|Goal Statement:||2) To lower my cholesterol below 200 and get off meds by this time next year|
|Goal Statement:||3) To have my RealAge be less than my chronological age within three months|
How can and will you describe your goals as futures, to magnetize your own inspired efforts and other resources to make these dreams come true?
