Setting personal goals

Setting personal goals is like charting a course for your life's journey. It's about identifying your desires, aspirations, and dreams, and taking deliberate steps to turn them into reality.

As a mum and a business owner, it's important not only to set goals for your own personal growth but also to engage in meaningful conversations with your spouse and children about their hopes and dreams. In this blog post, we'll explore the significance of setting personal goals, how to set them effectively, and the power of involving your loved ones in the process.

The importance of personal goals

Setting personal goals provides a sense of purpose, direction, and motivation in your life, it's really normal though to lose yourself in motherhood and to forget what matters to you.

So how do you remind yourself of what your personal goals are (or decide on some new ones)?

Begin by taking the time to reflect on your own desires and dreams. What are the things that truly ignite your passion and bring you joy? What are the things you've done in recent years that you've really loved? Consider your personal interests, values, and long-term vision. Write down your thoughts and explore different areas of your life, including relationships, health, and personal development.

Once you've gained clarity on your own goals, it's valuable to have conversations with your spouse and children about their hopes and dreams. Create a safe and supportive space to discuss their aspirations, encouraging open and honest dialogue. By involving your family in the goal-setting process you really create a vision for your family which is exciting and compelling.

You've probably heard of SMART goals, and these are important if you're going to turn your aspirations into actionable goals. Here's what you need to decide about each of your goals.

  • Specific: Clearly define what you want to achieve.

  • Measurable: Establish tangible criteria to track your progress.

  • Achievable: Set realistic goals that are within your reach.

  • Relevant: Ensure your goals align with your values and long-term vision.

  • Time-bound: Set deadlines to create a sense of urgency and focus.

Each goal can then be broken into small manageable steps - an action plan - knowing your plans and making sure you have a realistic time frame based on your true availability makes your action plan even more achievable.

Setting personal goals empowers you to shape your future and live a fulfilling life. By involving your spouse and children in meaningful conversations about their dreams and aspirations, you have something amazing to work towards as a family.
