Goal Setting

This month we are focusing on Effective Goal Setting.  The goal for our coaching session is for you to create a future picture of what 2012 will bring you, which will help you set and achieve your goals.

To get the most out of this session, we recommend that you find a quiet place where you can be undisturbed for 5-10 minutes – put your mobile on silent, close the door, log out of your e-mails etc.  You will need a pen, paper, and envelope and a stamp!

Many of our coaching clients find it difficult to set clear goals for themselves.  It can be challenging to clearly articulate where you want to be and what you want to achieve.  So, we would like to share a fantastic technique that we have used with many clients to help them create a clear future picture.

Crazy as it might sound…you are going to write a letter to your future self, describing what you have achieved over the next 11 months!

Imagine it is December 2012, what will the past year have brought you?  Be as descriptive as you can be, talk about all aspects of your life:

  • what you have achieved,
  • what you are proud of,
  • who you have met,
  • what you have learned,
  • how you feel,
  • what you look like
  • and so on.

Then, put the letter in the envelope, address it to yourself, put a stamp on it and give it to someone you can trust to post it for you in 11 months time.  Ask them to set themselves a reminder to post your letter on the 1st December 2012.  Alternatively, put your letter somewhere out of sight and set yourself a reminder to look it out again on that date.

We would love to hear how 2012 turns out for you!  You’ll be amazed how much of what you want to happen will happen, just by writing it down and planting that seed in your brain!
