My Daily Thoughts


Turning my Vision into Objectives for 2021

A goal is not always meant to be reached; it often serves simply as something to aim at.
Bruce Lee

I now have my vision for my life and my goals for 2021.

Creating my objectives for 2021 consists of two sets of planning.

The first is I look at each of my goals and determine the big components or pieces that I need to put in place to accomplish the goals.  For some goals that I have been working on in the past year, I look at what has worked and has not worked for achieving that goal.  As I use my JournaledLife template for my own use, I have all the activities and personal learnings related to each of my goals documented.

The second thing I look at is all my vision statements that are not yet part of my life.  As each of these vision statements is a single aspect of my vision, the vision statement itself just becomes the objective.

At the end of this exercise, I have a long list of objectives.

At this point, I am very careful to look at the objectives as different milestones that would be on different journies towards my vision.  I can’t look at them as a to-do list or it may become overwhelming.  I look at them like signposts on a road trip.  I can’t go on all road trips at once, depending on which road trip I go on, I will see different signposts, or in other words, depending on which journey I take towards my vision, there will be different milestones on the way.
