Life Goals

I've referenced the blog "Zen Habits" before and I'm still a big fan. A little while ago there was a post about life goals and how to set them. Today I wanted to start you off on the right foot with choosing life goals based on an excerpt from that article.

"How to choose life goals

There is no perfect answer here. Some people have known for awhile now what they really want, but just haven’t pursued it, and for them, it just takes a little contemplation to realize what they’ve wanted all along. Others will have a more difficult time, as they have never figured out what their dream is, or what they’d like to accomplish. For them, I’d make a few suggestions:

-Take some time for quiet contemplation.
-Think about
what’s important to you.
-Think about
what you’d like people to say about you when you die.
-Brainstorm — make a list of all the things you’d like to do in life, things that sound fun and exciting and wonderful, and then choose the best of the list.

You don’t have to come up with your life goals right now. You could just think of something you’d like to achieve over the next 6 months to a year, and continue to explore different things until you find your dream."
