"The first step in setting personal goals is to consider what you want to achieve in your lifetime (or at least, by a significant and distant age in the future). Setting lifetime goals gives you the overall perspective that shapes all other aspects of your decision making."


Finally, we reach the last part of "Setting Lifetime Goals," but this is just step one of a bigger process to help me pinpoint my goals.



Number 9: "Public Service - Do you want to make the world a better place? If so, how?"


If there is any public service I am interested in providing, it would be some kind of education that focuses on woman studies and empowerment.  It will be fufilling whether it is on a small scale or large scale. I imagine teaching in some type of religious or spiritual institution while starting out on a small scale.

Number 8: "Pleasure - How do you want to enjoy yourself? (You should ensure that some of your life is for you!)"


Pleasure, huh? Well, what automatically comes to mind is sex, regarding that, I want to enjoy a healthy sexual life in a safe, committed relationship.  Other things that come to mind is crossing out various activities on my bucket list ( skydiving, horseback riding, etc.) and then finally become  really good at dancing.

Number 7: "Physical - Are there any athletic goals that you want to achieve, or do you want good health deep into old age? What steps are you going to take to achieve this?"


I want to have a healthy BMI (18-24.9) and be as healthy as possible physically for as long as I am able to.  I'm willing to establish an exercise regime and a healthy diet to achieve these goals.  I am also interested in joining recreational activities that are healthy and athletic.

Number 6:  "Attitude - Is any part of your mindset holding you back? Is there any part of the way that you behave that upsets you? (If so, set a goal to improve your behavior or find a solution to the problem.)"


Obviously my bouts of depression hold me back: my "emotional instability", my anxiety, and my habit of procrastination.  I am obviously working on these things, but I could benefit from a more structured plan to improve on these areas of my persona.

Number 5:  Artistic - Do you want to achieve any artistic goals?


Outside of being a creative problem solver, I don't have a need to express myself purely for the sake of art.  I don't have a need to build any towering monuments or splash any canvases just to express myself artistically.  My artistic endeavors involve producing something practical yet beautiful. It's more along the lines of design, rather than just art for itself.  If I was to achieve any artistic goals it would be to integrate art and design into my problem solving.  This appears to be related to my career, my living environment, and my style of dress.  I want to LIVE and THINK BEAUTIFULLY, yet INTELLIGENTLY

Number 4: "Family - Do you want to be a parent? If so, how are you going to be a good parent? How do you want to be seen by a partner or by members of your extended family?"


Well, I'm already a parent but I would like to have another child if possible.  And "How are you going to be a good parent?" Wow, that question really stumped me. I guess don't think about it enough.  It would appear I need to do more information gathering regarding this topic.


As far as how I want to be seen? Well, I want to be seen as a loving, supportive, and healthy parent: gently leading my child in the direction that he/she chooses, supporting his/her strenths and growth, and providing all the unconditonal love he/she wants...all the while still fostering a sense of personal empowerment and independence.

Number 3: "Education - Is there any knowledge you want to acquire in particular? What information and skills will you need to have in order to achieve other goals?"


I would like to complete my undergraduate schooling and finally get my bachelor's degree.  I'm almost to the point where I'm about to say, "It doesn't matter what I get my degree in!' However, I'm still hopeful that I will find direction before too long.

Number 2: "Financial - How much do you want to earn, by what stage? How is this related to your career goals?"


Ideally, I would like to earn $100k a year. I would like to do this within the next 10 years.  This has everything to do with my career goals, if I could just determine and commit to what my career goals should be.

This shall be the first of a nine part project to help me discover my lifetime goals. Here we go....


Number 1: "Career - What level do you want to reach in your career, or what do you want to achieve?"


Unfortunately, the answer to this,  "I do not know."  I have done such a variety of things and have given up on them (for whatever reason) that I don't know what else I could or should do. I hope through more soul searching and working on "emotional regulation" (as my career counselor calls it), I should be able to find my way.   Good thing is she says it's, "Do-able."  Hooray!!
