Self-coaching is an exciting, affordable, and easy way to get yourself on track with personal development. Depending on how much time you have and the size and timeline of your goals, you can figure out your game plan and work on tackling each item in the list one day at a time.
To begin, take a broad view and decide where you would like to go with your life. What do you want to accomplish and how soon? What changes would you like to make?
Being complacent in your career can cost you. Stay sharp so you’ll be ready to make a move when the time is right. Your career goals can involve preparing to transition to a new job, getting accredited in a new field of expertise, taking on greater responsibility at work, or starting a side gig.
If you’re an entrepreneur, then you know how important it is to be on top of your game. What if something changes? You always want to be improving, so you can take action if necessary. Figure out long term business goals. What do you want to learn? How will you increase your income and expand your business?
Goals for your family life.
Family life should be first priority, as your family is likely your motivation for everything else you do. Think about goals you’d like to set for your family life. Do you want to plan more group activities? Talk and connect more? Would charity be something you can do as a family to instill strong values and help others?
Goals to hone personal interests.
Sometimes you just want to try something new. Or, maybe you’re going through something, like a big life change. Exploring new hobbies and gaining skills can help you channel emotional energy in a healthy and productive way. Think about a personal interest you’d like to pursue.
Who sets goals in their relationships? Lots of people, maybe just not on paper or in a self-coaching kind of way. But think what would happen if you did self-coach your way to better relationships? You could laugh more, enjoy more, worry, and argue less. You might spend more time with the people who mean most to you while limiting hours spent with negative people whose influence isn’t one you’d like to have in your life.
Financial goals are so important for your long-term happiness. Think safety, security, and peace of mind in old age. What if you get sick, or what if a personal situation changes? You want to be able to tap into that nest egg and have something left over if necessary. Financial goals could mean diversifying your portfolio. Maybe it’s exploring a new investment, like real estate. Or perhaps you’re looking to get out of debt. Talk with an expert so you can self-coach into wealth building.
Health and wellness goals.
Health goals can have us looking and feeling better, not to mention actually reducing our likelihood of developing life-threatening diseases as we age. Why not set some goals in support of your own health and longevity? No one wants to be a burden on their loved ones. We all want to live independently for as long as possible.
