When asked to write down their goals in life, many people struggle because they think their goals are trivial compared to some of the Bill Gates and Anthony Robbins of this world. Nothing can be further from the truth if their goals are based on one thing. What is it? Every successful person begins with the "End in Mind." And it is THEIR end! This makes it different from everyone else and truly worthy no matter how trivial it may sound. This is why they call it PERSONAL goal setting.
That "end in mind" concept is very effective because it allows us to work backwards and figure out ways we can get there. Now, as I mentioned earlier, it does not matter if your goal is to revolutionize the way we do business or if it is to be the best parent to your kid(s). As long as you know what YOUR optimal life looks like, you will have no problems coming up with worthy goals.
Unless your optimal life is truly unique, there are lots of resources out there to tell you how to get to where you want to go. So your first goal could be to go to Amazaon.com and find the top selling book in your area of interest. Then go to your local library and borrow it (or pick up a copy for yourself if you like to mark notes in your books).
You will find things that the author did that helped him/her realize what you are after. With that information at your fingertips, you can create many worthy goals, all moving you in the direction you want to go. You do not (and in many cases should not) have to reinvent the wheel. Copying will get you there faster. So in this case, copying is the smartest thing you can do.
In his book "The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People," Stephen R. Covey covers this "end in mind" concept by having you picture yourself at your own funeral. Listen to what your eulogy sounds like. Do you like it? If not, what would you change? I am sure this exercise will stir up more worthy goals.
