Changing Goals

Thank you for being with us today.

How are your plans coming along with the plans for your goals?. Where do you want to be? How you are going to get there? At what milestones do you have to reach along the way?

Many people believe that these are questions that should only be asked in high school and if you haven’t mastered them by the time you’re out of college you’re too late to do anything about it. These thoughts are so far from the truth that you just would not believe it.

You need to look at this type of planning, as life stage planning. You can plan out your life for where you want to go what you want to do and what goals you want to obtain at any point. Also, as you get to those times of change and the life stage where next, you can stop and look again. Check out everything you can, plan accordingly and then move in those directions. Here are some questions you can ask yourself:

  • Have I had something unseen or unplanned in my life that makes me need to change my direction or goals?
  • Have I completed my goals early and want to do something else?
  • Have I had a change of heart or for some other reason want to go in a new direction?
  • Am I happy where I am or do I want something different?
  • Where do I want to go and what do I want to do when I get there?

You may have other questions, and that is okay. In the end, it is actually up to you where you want to go, how you want to get there, and who you sure the future with. If you have a spouse or significant other, you want to share with them. If you have mentors and people who support you, you probably want to talk it over with them. In this day and life, there isn’t much on earth at least that happens in a vacuum.

We have talked before about many people who strive to do something, get there, and after a while realize they would really like to be somewhere else or doing something else. We see this happen as we age, grow wiser, our metal is tested, or we have life-events. And to choose new milestones towards new goals is actually a part of life. After all, the goal itself is nothing compared to the people and events we meet along the way.

Please join me again tomorrow when I am told we will have new snow in on the ground and slick streets, and if we do, hopefully, a cup of hot chocolate to watch everything out the window. Talk to you then, and thanks for being here.
