The 6 Month Goal Method

With a new year freshly upon us, we are presented with the opportunity to learn and grow in the best ways possible! We have the ability to go farther in our careers, our relationships, and our personal lives. So why should it slip through our fingers? Now is the time to take action and fulfill our dreams. We’ve been given only one life, so why not make it the best we can? And it all starts with proper goal setting. So what do we want to accomplish? What can we achieve if we put our minds to it? That is why I’m going to talk about The 6 Month Goal Method.

What it is

So what exactly is this method? It is a simple way of categorizing goals and laying them out over the course of 6 months. You will be focusing on six core areas of your life. And during the next six months, you will seek to improve each area. Ultimately, this will push you to improve yourself in all regions of your life. Even if you don’t complete some goals in certain areas, you can in others, which means that you are slowly getting better and better over time no matter what happens. The categories are as follows: Health, Finances, Relationships, Career, Spirituality (if you are a spiritual person), and Hobbies. Try to develop an overall objective you want to reach in each category. Something that will improve your life or a dream you’ve always had. For example, in Finances, you could put something like “Take a summer vacation to the Bahamas” or “Purchase a car.” In Health, you could write down “Run a marathon” or “lose ten pounds.” Take some time to think of where you want to be in each category and put that down into a single objective. This will be your starting point for implementation.
