Once upon a time, there was life without goals. Luckily, that’s way behind us now. Some people might find goal setting exhausting and are petrified with the pressure of it. But if you look closely, it’s not pressure – no, it’s pure motivation! It only depends on how you want to look at it, right?If there’s one thing that we truly stay by, it’s the idea of self-development. We are what we choose to be – and therefore, what we FIGHT to become. We give life to what we give energy to. “Okay, but there are a THOUSAND things I wanna do with my life. I want to be a better person and a better professional. I want to take care of my body and finances, and especially, I want to take care of MY MIND! How can I manage all of that at the same time?!”, you might ask us. Firstly, don’t worry. We have broken down goals into 5 categories so you can see everything more clear. Secondly, in order to be well rounded, you need to mix it up a little bit. You’d be hurting yourself if you just focus on one of them. They are pretty self-explanatory, so we’ll give you some ideas on how you could use them for yourself. Are you ready? Here they are:1.
