4 Areas for Focus Goals

How are you doing with your 2016 goals so far? I hope you are moving forward and seeing progress. As you move forward, I encourage you to have goals in at least 4 major areas of your life. These can be broken down into sub-categories, but these are four main areas of life where goals can help you live life to the fullest.

  1. Physical

Take care of your physical body. Whether it is to weigh a certain amount, exercise more, or get more sleep, take care of yourself. Set some goals concerning your physical life. This will give you more energy to fulfill your other goals.

  1. Emotional

– Invest more time into your family.
– Call a friend you have not talked to in a while.
– Have a quality, heartfelt conversation with your spouse.
– Develop some emotional attachment and stability.

Set some goals concerning your emotional life. Success will not mean much if you leave those you love behind in the process.

  1. Mental

– Take a class.
– Read a book.
– Go to a seminar.

Continue to expand your mind. Set some goals concerning your mental life. What you learn on your goal achievement journey is more important than actually achieving the goal.

  1. Spiritual

Zig Ziglar says, “You’re going be dead a lot longer than you’re going to be alive, so you need to be setting those long-term goals.” I could not have said it better myself. Set some goals concerning your spiritual life. These goals will have the biggest impact on your life.

 

You may ask, “Where do financial goals fit in?” It depends on what the focus of your financial goals may be. If you are struggling for survival then your financial goals may be in the physical category. You may need to set some financial goals to continue to put food on the table. If you are wanting to save up for a special gift or a vacation for you and your family, it may be an emotional goal. If you are wanting to save up enough money to go back to school without going into debt then your financial goal may be a mental goal. If you are wanting to do more good with your money by giving more to your church or to another charity organization then it may be a spiritual goal. Just be intentional about what area of your life you are developing.

Can you think of any other areas of life where you would want to set and achieve some goals?  Leave a comment and share what areas you want to work on!
