Goal-setting gone wrong
How the 4 pillars can support your goal-setting process
Why the 4 pillars for goal-setting?
So what are these four pillars then? Previously, I already emphasized a goal should be motivational, personal and in line with your identity and values. These pillars ensure that you keep to these characteristics of a goal, resulting that you do not burn out or create a goal that does not satisfy you.
Firstly, a goal should be balanced out with your physical and mental health. Secondly, a goal should be balanced out with the different important dimensions in your life. Thirdly, a goal should be in harmony with your personal life. Lastly, but certainly not least, if you want to set a goal that makes you happy in the future, it is imperative that your goal is value-based. Let me now briefly explain why these four pillars are so important.
4 Pillars for strong Goal-Setting
Pillar 1: Goals congruent with your Mind & Body
Pillar 2: Goals tailored to a Balanced Life
A balanced life is a prerequisite for a happy and fulfilling life. All your activities during your week should be centered around the physical, mental, social and spiritual domains of life. The same counts for goal-setting. You don’t want to only set goals in one or two domains. It is important to challenge yourself in all four domains. In that way, all four domains will stay at the forefront of your mind and you’ll feel balanced.
