Last weekend, my friend Courtney put together a 2020 Goal Setting brunch. She invited a diverse group of women and created worksheets for us to fill out at brunch. After we wrote down our goals, we read them out loud over avocado toast and rosé. I left feeling so inspired that I immediately came home to write this blog post on how to set goals.
Courtney did such a great job breaking down goals into four categories: personal, professional, financial and self care. She actually does all the SEO for Sydne Style so this is basically a guest blog post from her! I wanted to share her worksheet so you can do your own goal setting at home. I included one example of each of mine to get you started…
2020 Goal Setting
What are your goals?
Top 3 Personal Goals:
Example: Focus on fulfillment over success.
Top 3 Professional Goals:
Example: Grow more long-term partnerships.
Top 3 Financial Goals:
Example: Cut back on frivolous spending.
Top 3 Self-Care Goals:
Example: Listen to my body.
How are you going to achieve your goals?
3 Ways to Reach My Personal Goals:
Example: Save messages I get on how I’ve helped others and read those messages daily.
3 Ways to Reach My Professional Goals:
Example: Schedule a networking coffee or drinks three times a month.
3 Ways to Reach My Financial Goals:
Example: Delete Postmates and Doordash from my phone and stock up on healthy snacks at home.
3 Ways to Reach My Self-Care Goals:
Example: Block out “me-time” in my calendar and treat it like a meeting I can’t miss.
You can definitely do this exercise at home. But I do encourage you do it with others because I got so much out of sharing my goals and hearing other people’s goals. You don’t have to do a brunch like we did. You could invite a few friends over for wine and snacks and ask them each to bring a friend.
It was so beneficial to meet women from all different professions. We were all able to help each other with our strengths. One woman knew a great app that helps with budgeting. Another had a podcast she recommended to help learn about financials. When women come together, we really can all support each other.
“Behind every successful woman,
is a tribe of other successful women,
who have her back.”
