While in isolation, I have been watching a lot of shows on Netflix. Other times, I have been on online getting lost in the countless YouTube videos. My days have been blended into each other. The reason is because I was laid off. After a few days, it got me thinking. This is the perfect time to set some goals.
I started to plan out my 1, 5 and 10 year goals that I want to do. I recently, listen to Dorie Clark. She is a marketing and a strategy consultant. I know that a lot of these life coaches can be unbearable. I tend to find them a bit of a turn off. What I will say is that some of them do have some great points.
I decided to give Dorie Clark’s philosophy a try. What I like is the planning of monthly goals to reach my yearly goals. This has helped me to focus. It is very easy to do and not a stressful process.
I’m going to share some of my goals but not all. The reason is that they are personal to me.
Year One Goal: I would like to be a multimedia designer in eLearning. I did work on an eLearning program at Football Canada and would like to focus on sports again.
A monthly goal: Learn more about eLearning techniques like gamification which I have been doing.
It is a tiny sample of my goals, but it is a thought out list that I created for myself.
It will be hard trying to follow my goals. At times, it will be frustrating. As long as I try to accomplish them, I will feel proud of myself.
