How to set more purposeful goals.

Let’s get to work and start setting some meaningful and purposeful goals, that you can actually achieve.

Goals are stepping stones towards your greater vision, mission and purpose, that's all they are and they serve little or no purpose if they do not fit into your vision for life.

Those of you who have my Blueprint know just how much work must go in, before you get to finalize your goals.

Step 1:
The first step to setting purposeful goals is to create and work from your vision for your life, you have to know how you want your life to look like and what you want to create and share with the world.

Step 2:
The next step is to work out the steps that are going to make that vision a reality. So you may have to look at things like location, education, skill set and experience in order to move in that direction. Do your research!

Step 3:
Once you have mapped out the possible steps to make your ideal life and vision a reality, then and only then do you have actionable goals.
Your next challenge is to work out HOW you are going to achieve each goal along the way, it's time to start looking at the finer details.

Step 4:
You need to make forward progress on your goals and start taking action. So look at each step you have created and choose the top 3 ideas that you can execute on factoring in your current time, energy, skills and resources.

Step 5:
Once you've done all that, you can start removing the goals that are in conflict with each other and set a realistic timeframe to reach each of your targets. This is one of the most important parts of the process. Remove anything that is in conflict with your vision.

Setting intelligent goals takes time, takes research and requires you to think in great detail about your life, but if you do it right, you'll feel empowered and so much more certain about your life and where you are heading.

I hope that helps you guys set more meaningful and purposeful goals throughout your life!
