Goals

I use the structure laid out in The 12 Week Year.

Ratings

To decide what to focus on, rate yourself in the six areas of life balance.

  • Spouse: 8
  • Family: 5
  • Community: 3
  • Physical: 6
  • Personal: 8
  • Business: 6

Life vision

Construct a vision of your life 5, 10, 15 years into the future. Be bold, be courageous; create a life vision that inspires you and fulfills your purpose. There are no right or wrong answers. This is the life you deeply desire.

  • I want to be known as an author.
  • I want to retire comfortably in my 50s.
  • I want our kids to become happy and successful and compassionate adults.
  • I want our kids and grandkids to want to spend time with us.
  • I want my marriage to be the one that makes our friends/family jealous.
  • I want to have a house and cars that we are happy with without being overly flashy.
  • I want to finish a marathon in under 3 hours.
  • I want to look the most fit in a bathing suit out of anyone my age that I know.

Three-year vision (ending December 2023 – I’ll be 37 years old)

Based on your long-term vision, what do you want to create over the next three years? Describe in as much detail as possible what a great personal and professional life would look like three years from today. The more specific you are at this stage, the easier it will be to create your 12 week goals and your plan.

I want our house to be organized, presentable, and well maintained, with all major problems fixed.
