Failing to Plan, Is Planning to Fail II




Welcome back to Business & Budgets! I hope you are off to an amazing start with your plan of action that you have put in effect for the new year. If you haven't checked out part I of Failing to Plan, Is Planning to Fail Part I, check it out here! In this post we will cover the different types of goals you should set for yourself. I also have attached a few worksheets to help you plan your goals and track your progress.


There are 5 different types of goals you should plan for a well rounded strategy. These five categories are:


Personal Goals: How do you want to look and behave

Family, Friends & Relationship Goals: How do you want to relate and communicate

Heart & Spirit Goals: How do you want to feel, glow and grow

Financial Goals: How much do you want save, invest, increase and spend your funds

Work, Career and Study Goals: How are you going to take your work life to the next level


In an effort to help you plan your goals and break them down into something more feasible I have attached a few of my own personal examples.
