Values aren’t goals.

Goals are things that you can measure. You can quantify a goal to know if you’ve achieved it:

  • or by a date (I will have X by DATE).

What kind of life do you want?

Ask yourself,

  • What kind of a life do I want to live?
  • What qualities do I want to experience in my life, and for the people I care about?

How do you measure well-being goals?

I said earlier that a goal is an outcome and you need something quantitative by which to measure it.

The bigger picture

Answer these questions,

  • What do you want to experience and enjoy?
  • What are your goals, your measurable outcomes, that will help you create your quality of life?

Think short term

Start with what you want to focus on over the next 90 days.

Think longer term

Think also about where you want to be and want you want to experience in the next 6–12 months, two, five, and ten years from now.

Another ✓ in the box of life.

When you check off the boxes, yet another goal accomplished, you bear witness to the value of your actions.
