Goal Setting

Posted by Bryce Wend on June 5, 2009

So, I have been thinking about doing this whole elaborate goal setting post for awhile now.  My hope in sharing my process is that it might be helpful to someone else.  Goal setting has allowed me to live a more conscious life, dream big and tackle some pretty incredible things.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted though so instead of being a perfectionist I am going to just break it down into small little posts… wait, what’s that?… breaking a large activity down into small components in order to tackle the goal?!?  Geeze, I couldn’t have planned that better if I had meant too!  

So here is a tool called a “Find Time to Do What You Love” matrix.  I made up that name but the basics of the tool come from a great woman named Patti Peters.  Patti, an incredible professional coach out of Sonoma, was hired by my company to put on a leadership development series that I attended.  I learned a lot of very useful tools through that program that have profoundly changed the way I work and the way I tackle my day to day life.  This particular exercise really opened my eyes to what was and what was not working in my life.  I hope that it will do the same for you! 

The chart below is pretty self explanatory, all you need is a blank sheet of paper and a clear head.  Create some columns and begin filling them out! 

Brainstorm… there is no right or wrong answer, and nothing is too silly to write down!  Please give yourself permission to dream!

Are you going to try it? 

If you do, I’d love to hear about how it worked for you.
