How to Set GOALS 2024 🎯

1. The Yearly Review

Before we even set goals, it’s important to review the past.

“Those who fail to study history are often doomed to repeat it” – Some wise guy.

Here’s how I review the Last year.

   • I look at and list all the things that has happened. 

   • This includes Projects, activities and experiencesI have gone through. 

   • Then I take up last year’s goals and then compare and contrast what worked and what didn’t.

And here’s the most important step I do as part of this process. I create a +PLUS And a -MINUS List. 🤔

   • I take all the good thing that contributed to more happiness in my life and put in the +PLUS List.

   • I take all the not so good “Unfun” things that contributed to more unhappiness in the -MINUS List.


The goal now is to do More of the PLUS and Eliminate most or all of the MINUS. 🏆

Then I would Create 3-5 things/lessons that I would like to implement moving forward.

You need an ACTIONABLE (and simple) solution list by the end of this review.

2. GOAL SETTING - How I Set Goals?

Here’s my Simple (or not so simple) process for setting goals.

1. Create a VISION for 5-10 years down the road. ⏳

   • Define how you want your life to be in different categories (Health, Wealth, Relationships, Work, Spiritual etc).

   • Be WILD and unrealistic.

   • Your vision can be flexible and you can update it from time to time.

   • This is to define your IDEAL FUTURE that would help create your personal compass.

2. Fast Forward to the END of 1 Year and define the things you HAVE achieved in the each categories you have.

   • Write in present tense – ex – “I have created my first Comic book” “I have lost 20lbs and have gone to the gym 3 times a week” etc.

   • This is to properly define the EXACT definition of a productive year.

   • Be a tad more realistic here than your vision. But make it (as Andrew Huberman would put it) “Moderately Lofty”


3. Power of 3-5 MIG (most important goals) and put the rest on back burner.

   • This is to create FOCUS (Chase two rabbits, catch neither one)

   • Re-organize them in Order of priority/importance.

4. Think BOULDERS > ROCKS > PEBBLES.

   • Pick 1-2 Goals per quarter (These are your quarterly “BOULDERS”)

   • Define a Plan to achieve it.

   • Create a Monthly Target (These are your Monthly “ROCKS”)

   • Create a VERY REALISTIC Weekly Target (These are your weekly “PEBBLES”)

That’s all folks!

3. Favourite Quote of the Week

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”

– Albert Einstein

That’s it for this week folks.
See you in the next one 🙂

Best,
Kesh.
