It’s easy to think of a goal as a simple task or a specific outcome – such as meditating each day for ten minutes or losing five pounds. To broaden your scope, try thinking about goals in the following three categories:
What experience would you like to have?
An experience of travel, meeting new people, romance, a healthy body, feeling abundant, etc…
Where in your life do you want to grow? Where is your leading edge?
Learning something new or taking on an expansive challenge, for example.
What legacy do you want to leave behind? What do you want to be known for, stand for, or give in service to others?
Once you’ve created a list of areas you’d like to experience, grow, and serve, then you can create tasks or action plans from there. You’ll be amazed at the goals that can come out of this approach!
