day 6: put your goals out there

It's day 6 of Goal Week! So far, we've: looked at what makes a goal, dreamed up our ideal lives, and learned how to write specific and measurable goals. What's next? Sharing your goals.

why share your goals?

Sharing your goals is an important part of goal-setting. As Carolyn mentioned in her post about goal-setting tips, when you share your goals, you gain an instant support network of people that will hold you accountable. This also leads to conversation around your goals so that you can gain the insight and knowledge you need to achieve them.

how to share your goals

Sharing your goals can be as simple as a conversation with a friend, colleague, or family member. If you created a visual goal board, put it somewhere visible and public so it's always in front of you. At lululemon, our goals are in our stores, near our desks, and in the hallway of our Store Support Centre, Guest Education Centre, and Distribution Centre.

your mission today

Your goal mission today, if you choose to accept it, is to share a 1, 5, or 10-year goal with someone. If the thought of doing this creates butterflies in your stomach - you're on the right track! It might not be easy at first to talk about the future and what you want out of your life if you're not used to it, but it will get better. Ready, set - go get 'em!

P.S. If you have questions about goal setting, want some tips, or have thoughts/feedback for us, come to our Facebook wall at 4 pm PST tomorrow (Sept. 8th) for Ask a Goal Coacher Live!

Done! This is exactly why I started my blog. I needed some community around me while I went the final leg of my Figure Competition prep and some accountability. There is no quitting now! And I love it.
Great post. =)

OK, you got me here. I love sharing my goals, but the long-term ones do make me a little nervous. Tomorrow, I will share a long-term goal with a few of my closest friends. But today, it’s you guys! One year from now I want to be out of my day job and making a significant income from my online business. I want to have a huge community of people coming together and interacting, as if hanging out with friends, all on my online community. (I just started this business 4 weeks ago).

I am writing an inspirational book for women entitled The Reluctant Leader: Applying Your Forty Plus Values to Inspire What you Do!

I am building a platform of potential purchasers down the road on Facebook at
please “Like” it if you do. It is all about inspiration, positivity, and all things WOW! Yes it has a long term purpose but I absolutely love creating it.

My goal is to be an entrepreneur. My tagline and goal is “Making a Difference in Your Life, One WOW at a Time!”

There my goals are written down for a portion of the world to see…..I will comment again once they are attained, and they will be as my values will guide me through this.
