create your ideal life with goal setting

Goal setting is a big part of our culture here at lululemon. Every employee is encouraged to create a vision for their ideal life and to set personal, health and career goals to achieve that vision.

Watch this video of lululemon founder, Chip Wilson, explaining how he uses goal setting to realize his vision for his life.

our goal setting program

Our vision and goal setting training program is based on six core concepts. Your vision defines your ideal life and identifies the goals you'll need to get there. Through goal setting, you get down to the nitty-gritty of what you need to do - and when you need to do it by - to create your ideal life.

Your vision:

  • provides focus
  • helps you discover your personal path

Your goals:

  • inspire you to do the work
  • excite and even scare you
  • are specific, measurable and written in the present tense
