Set a goal
Now that you’ve chosen an area of focus, you’re ready to design your goal. If helpful, some goal designing resources include:
Visualize accomplishing your goal
Identify what’s needed to support your success. Consider:
- Are there barriers to overcome?
- What preparation may be helpful?
- What support systems or resources can you access?
- What additional information might be useful before you begin?
Explore your confidence
Make adjustments to raise your confidence in accomplishing your goal if helpful. Consider:
- How confident are you that you will accomplish your goal? Highly? Somewhat? Slightly?
- How did you determine that level of confidence?
- What might increase your confidence as you begin this experiment?
- What might support your ongoing confidence as you go?
Put it into motion
Once you have transformed your chosen area of focus into a well-defined goal, you’re ready to experiment. Check-in with yourself about your goal progress after one to two weeks.
Other helpful tips

- Determine if you’re ready and able to work on your goal with the time and resources you have.
- Think about the desired outcome of your goal and the impact it will have on your life.
