It’s January, and time for setting my 2015 goals! For the first time since setting up this website, I’m going to declare my goals publicly and publish a monthly update so that you can see my progress (or the lack of!). In this way I hope to be held accountable by my readers and I also hope that this process will inspire you to write your goals and maybe go public too.
I’ve used the Wheel of Life (click on eBook Resources above for a template you can download) and have now split my goals into different areas of my life. After completing the WoL exercise it became clear that some areas required more attention than others and this is reflected in my goals.
This will be a year-long process, although, of course, I intend to have completed some of these goals long before the end of the year. I may also add or amend goals as the year progresses to recognise any changes and remain flexible. I will not delete any goals that become ‘obsolete’ but will maintain them on the list with the reason they are no longer viable if this becomes the case.
Here are my 2015 Goals (in no particular order)

So there it is!
It was fun and challenging putting this list together, and I feel motivated and enthused now that my list is down on paper! At this stage I don’t know how I will achieve some of the goals, but I’m confident that I’ll find the way as I go along. It feels great to know my intended direction for 2015 and I’m looking forward to achieving significant growth.
So there’s my list – what do you think? Do you have any thoughts on my list – what could help or hinder?
Or what about you, have you put your goal list together for 2015? If you have some goals, why not be accountable too and add them in the comments?
If anyone would like any help or guidance with their goals, then leave a question in the comments or shoot me an email. I’d be very happy to help.
Let’s make 2015 AWESOME!
