the goal week schedule

Day 1: Welcome
Time to get your goal setting self in order! The goal of today is to get you thinking about the importance of goal setting. Whether you've never set goals before or are an avid goal setter, there'll be a part of Goal Week that means something to you. Hear from lululemon founder, Chip Wilson, on why he personally goal sets and how he got started being a goal setter.

Day 2: What is a goal?
Today's all about giving you the lay of goal-setting land. What exactly is a goal, and why do we set them? Learn how Carolyn, our Digital Innovation Manager, sets goals, and Kerry from Strategic Sales talks about creating the space for yourself to imagine.

Days 3 & 4: Dream, dream, dream
It's the weekend, so while you're in Saturday morning savasana spend your weekend dreaming, getting inspired, and thinking about what your ideal life looks like in 10 years. We've got some arts and crafts ideas for helping you figure this out.

Day 5: Create
After a weekend of creating possibilities for your best life ever, it's time to get down and dirty with your goals and fill your goal sheets in. Julie, our U.S. Training Manager, talks about goal setting and how to be a goal coacher.

Day 6: Put your goals out there
Something special happens when you share your goals. Learn more about the importance of sharing. Sara, our Director of Ecommerce Operations, shares her personal adventure in goal-setting and what holds her accountable.

Day 7: Love your failures
Learn why failing is important and come to our Ask a Goal Coacher...live! event with Matt, goal coacher extraordinaire, who will be answering your questions about goal setting on our Facebook wall for one hour starting at 4 pm PST. We're also going to check in with two of our BHAGs from June on this day and talk about the part of goal-setting that happens after you've filled out your goal sheet and hear how goal setting changed Ava's career direction.

Here are two blog posts about goal-setting to help get you in the goal-setting mood:

1. 30 Seconds to Change Your Life: "Setting goals has always been a love of mine. It gave me direction and purpose. More than once I have set my sights on big targets and wonder why, so close to getting it, it didn’t work out." read more >>

2. Got Goals? "We don’t take goals lightly at lululemon. Even though my skeptic soul tries to resist, when you set a goal and write it down on a piece of paper, you start working towards that very goal and you either achieve it or it leads you anew." read more >>

Hi. I was inputting my goals on the goaltender website. I have a widescreen monitor. The site fits very poorly on it and the left hand side gets cut off (didn’t know that it was asking for goals from each (career, personal,health). I had to minimize the screen to 50% just to see them. It isn’t very visable anyway. I think you should change this to make each category more visible. Other then that, I love the site. thank you!

Well, I got laid off today from my long term job, so this is perfect! I’ll have to take a day or so to get my head around not having to head to my old office, but then it’s go time.

I will open the lululemon London Showroom by July 2011 in prep for the London Olympics!

My goal is to get healthier, eat better, and lose weight while training to run the 2010 Las Vegas Half Marathon (maybe even the full) and begin training immediately to meet that goal. Any helpful training tips (especially for someone who does work out 3-4 times a week through kickboxing & spin, but has a sweet tooth and 50 lbs. to lose) would be appreciated.

BTW: I can’t wait to look hot in my lulu gear! That would be a great bonus!

My goal is to learn to relax! I need to get in touch with my granola side and take life a bit more slowly!

My goal is to get certified to teach spin classes by Oct 4th!

Comment by Andrea — September 10, 2010 @ 5:22 pm

After recently being displaced from the workplace (after 20 years with the same organization), my goal is to find a full-time job by the end of October. A side benefit of having more spare time is being able to work out. I am confident that I’ll be better than ever in no time at all!

I say yes! Ldl cholesterol is nothing but dangerous kinds of cholesterol that is certainly certainly not nice in the body.

Greetings from Florida! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, fantastic site!
