Which way should I go?..... It depends, where do you want to go?....... I don't care...... Then it doesn't matter which way you go! - Alice in Wonderland
This is a great dialog and a powerful conversation. As we begin to plan our next year and goal setting is a buzz. People are starting to ask themselves the question, "Which way should I go?" The I don't care part of the conversation is what people who are not writing out goals for the next year. They are saying I don't care because without goals they are planning on not caring which way they go.
The first step in goal setting is getting clear on what you want, and knowing exactly where you are and where you want to go. Until you can aswer this, having goals or not having goals are the same thing. They are roads that take you everywhere but where you truly want to go. Take the time to get clear on where you are and where you precisely want to be by this time next year. Then work your way backwards to find the steps needed to get there.
Remember, Work Smart and Live Well.
