It has been a long weekend but a lovely one – getting out of town is always fun. And I still can’t get over our hotel room, the bright green wall and the crazy curtains – oh and did you notice this guy:
I have never stayed at a hotel that actually makes towel animals. So that was a first for me.
Now that I’ve had time to catch up on
reading blogs laundry, cleaning, errands, grocery shopping, etc, I have had some time to dwell on the Leadership seminar. So I dug out the workbook that we each got and paged through it.
The seminar was broken down into smaller chapters, and my favorite was “Dreams, Visions and Goal Setting”. Dave talked about how goals can have a long-term positive impact if they include these types of goals (not in this order)
I think that anyone can look at that list and see that they have strengths and weaknesses in each of those areas – for me, Career, Spiritual and Social goals are the ones I have to work on the most – they don’t come easily for me. Physical, Financial and Intellectual goals are “easier” for me – I’m not saying a super buff, financial savvy genius (or am I?) – but when I make goals in those areas I am easily motivated to reach them.
But perhaps I reach those goals because I make them too easy? I’m not sure. Regardless, Social goals are not ever high on my list, since to me, being social is not something I strive for. I am naturally introverted, shy and quiet. I would rather spend my time alone or with a very small group – so having a goal to be more social is something I definitely need to consider. Along with that, being social with the right people is important as well – am I surrounding myself with positive, uplifting people? People who will support my goals in the other 6 key areas?
*Looking at that list of goal areas, what is one area that you need to work on? And what area(s) are you naturally strong?
