Wellness Self-Coaching: Experiment

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

  • Create goals around what you will do, not what you will not do or think you should do.
  • 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.
