Do You Have Real Life Goals?

When you go to a job interview you will likely be asked about your goals in one form or another. The interesting thing is that few people think about this question unless they are asked.

I challenge you to sit down with a pencil and piece of paper and jot down the goals that are important to you. Don’t worry about order or priority, just jot down anything and everything you would like to achieve.

Your next step is to take your list of goals and see if any of them can be grouped. For example, can you identify categories such as education, career, relationships, fitness, etc. and place a few goals in each category?

Once you categorize your goals you can set priorities and pin point action items to achieve each goal. You may choose to tackle one goal at a time. Perhaps you can address a few at a time. Set aside regular time to devote to each action item.

For example, if you choose to learn Spanish, set aside two to five hours a week for your studies and be sure to identify what you plan on doing during this time. Will you attend a class? Will you use a computer program? Etc.

So, you go from brainstorming your goals to actually achieving them.

Imagine how well you will answer the “goal” question at your next job interview. You will make a great impression as a go getter and you’ll be happier in the meantime too.
