Setting goals for your year…….love them or avoid them?!?!?!
If you aren’t one to set goals then read no further. However, the benefits of setting goals can be many. We just need to make sure we are kind to ourselves, no self flagellation, if we don’t achieve them. We also need to be realistic when setting them, especially in one’s Third Age.*
Goals can bring that internal motivation that drives your energy? They can drive your forward momentum, especially when that becomes harder as you age?
If you are thinking about your goals for this year as I am, I would encourage you to include, as one source of inspiration, information that is coming out of the many relevant research projects happening across the globe. This work looks into what helps you live well, that is increasing your healthspan, along with what influences how long you live, your lifespan.
BUT I hear you say……Who is going to find, follow and read that research? We are! While it is evolving all the time, the important areas are relatively clear and we have captured them in our free questionnaire, the Wayfinder. While this diagnostic tool will continue to develop in line with the research, you can definitely use it as one input to developing personal and motivating goals in 2022.
