8 Types of Goals to Set In Order to Balance Your Chaotic Life

How balanced is your life? Do you only work, and set goals around work, or do you also set goals in other areas of your life?

There are so many different types of goals you can set for yourself. But have you ever wondered how balanced your goals are – most people set a lot of goals only in one area of their lives like their career, or their finances or their family.

They would; for example set goals to climb the corporate ladder, take a new course, become more productive, make more money etc. These are good goals to have, but when you look at the bigger picture of your life – how do these goals actually help you to balance your life?

If you have a balanced life, you will be more effective as a whole person. What effect do you think setting the above mentioned goals have on the other areas of your life? What will it mean to your relationships if you become more productive at work?

It can either help you to spend more time with family or it can cause you to spend more time at work. So it is important that you keep in mind how balanced your life will be when you start to set goals.

There are basically 8 dimensions or areas we have as humans, I will list them below and ask you a few questions to make you think about your life as a whole.

The challenge is to set one goal for every dimension. Rather work on all your areas of your life simultaneously than putting all your focus on one are only. Imagine how much more productive and effective you will be at work when you are more healthy, grow spiritually, enjoy love in your relationships and are mentally sharp.

Now it is your turn, sit down with those people closest to you and get some feedback from them on what they think you should work on, or you know yourself well enough to identify what you need to work on!\

    It’s not easy to balance it all. When I start my day spending time with God, it seems to work better.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Francois great post on goal setting! I know I could benefit from setting good goals in all 8 dimensions. I will definitely take some time soon to write down my goals for each dimension (especially now that the first half of 2015 is behind us and I want to make my 2nd half even better).
