Summer’s Bounty: Work Toward Your Goals This Season


Summer’s Bounty: Work Toward Your Goals This Season

One way to make the most of your summer is to focus on your life goals. Hopefully, you have a short list of objectives that you’re consistently working toward. If not, now’s the time to evaluate what’s most important to you and develop 3 to 5 life goals that help you create the life you desire.

Use these strategies to take advantage of this summer to help make your dreams come true:

1. Write out your objectives and make a plan. You most likely have your objectives in your mind, but writing them down makes your goals more real, tangible, and likely to happen. An action plan guides you forward from step to step.

* It’s much easier to focus your time on working to achieve your goals if you’ve thought them through in detail and made a written plan to achieve them.

2. Think about the spare time that you’ll have this summer. Wouldn’t you enjoy setting out to achieve one or two of your life goals in that spare time?

* You’ll have some evenings, weekends, and maybe even some weekdays free, depending on your work schedule. That’s a lot of time to devote to manifesting your dreams!

3. Set aside some time in your schedule to work towards your goals. Mark it on your calendar.

* For example, if your kids go to grandma’s house on Saturday mornings, block off from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, at least twice a month, to work on accomplishing your objectives.

* Planning to spend specific time working on what matters to you is necessary to achieve your goals.

4. If your aim is to relax more this summer, reflect on what helps you unwind. Summer is prime time for relaxation! Taking daily walks, working out at the gym, or knitting ardently might be your idea of taking it easy. Whatever it is, go for it!

5. Maybe you’ve always wanted to produce something. Perhaps you want to write a book of poetry or make furniture by hand. The summer is a perfect time for such projects.

6. Expand your knowledge. Perhaps you want more education. Colleges and universities now offer short-term courses for college credits that can be completed over a summer.

* Some educational institutions even offer weekend courses that take place over three or four weekends. Contact your local universities for information.

* The summer could also provide you the opportunity to take online courses.

7. Develop your skills. Designate this summer to learn a new skill or further perfect skills you already have.

* For example, maybe you’ve always wanted to make jewelry and need one more class to perfect your jewelry-making skills. Take that class this summer!

8. Is one of your goals to enjoy life more? You can get started today! Make plans to do something you’ve always wanted to do.

* Take a trip to lands you’ve always wanted to visit.

* Talk with friends or loved ones about getting together more often. Make a plan to meet up on a monthly basis just to have some fun this summer.

For many, summer is a chance for renewal and refreshment. Warm weather is the perfect time for this! Whether you take the first few steps toward a new plan or complete a lifelong objective is up to you. Embrace this summer as a time to achieve your goals.
