Today I want to talk to you about goals versus outcomes. I know that when we have conversations in our school with the students and we’re on live calls and we have questions, when we have them from quite a few students I know that that’s a topic of conversation that other people having. That other places are having and that other people are thinking because if there’s people in a school thinking that, they can’t be the only ones.
And this week in the school, we actually looked at goals for the year. And we talked about what the difference between goals are or how important it is to actually look at the outcomes that you want and I got to apologise. This is on holidays up the north coast of New South Wales. And for a little tiny town country town that I’m staying at across the road from the water it’s going to be the noisiest street in the place theres endless cars and I’m just gonna whinge. I think they started in, like, five oclock this morning. Where are these people are going in the little tiny country town? So, country town I’m sure it’s actually, very, very, very very beautiful, beautiful water across the road and noisiest street on the planet. So I do apologise for any of the car noises that seem to come through on this video, so where were we. Talking about some outcomes versus goals?
When we start to look at goals, they seem to they’re very much based on.
What would I like to get? What would I like to get?
What do I like to get? There’s often money included.
We talk about smart goals and making them specific and measurable and all that sort of stuff and it’s always wonderful, really, really wonderful. But ultimately, the goal of your life is to be happy and to build a lifestyle, particularly your business. Your business is very much based on making money, having a lifestyle and doing what you love. Whether you’re still in a day job or whether you’ve transitioned out or you’re still just thinking about “I want to run my own business and get out of my job that I’m doing”, the ultimate goal of all of it, the ultimate aiming is to have the outcome that you want.
Now, my business was always always about lifestyle for me.
Totally completely lifestyle, my kids were growing up I’m a single Gal. For me it was about lifestyle. What was I going to create for my life?
that was going to bring me happiness, bring me joy and just have me loving life. That was the priorities and that’s what I’ve always aimed for and I’ve already decided I wanted and that’s what I’ve always gone for rather than thinking about what are my goals? Going to be what my goal is going to be. What are my goals? Going to be so I want you to think about the same thing. What is it? What ultimately is the lifestyle you want to create for yourself? Take yourself that step further if you have written goals for this year, fantastic, go and look at them. Look at them, embrace them and ask yourself what emotions are attached to these, what am I going to feel? What do I achieve this? What am I going to think when I achieve this and then take the next step what is it ultimately?
I want my life to be about if you’ve got a great business, but you’re still tied to your business completely. Have you bought a lifestyle or if you just bought yourself a job and not that there’s anything wrong with it? But I just wonder, can you take it a step further? Can you look at something slightly differently and look at the outcomes you want for your life. And then look at your business or your career, your job and ask yourself are they actually achieving what I want. Because to me lifestyle has to be what life is about. And if lifestyle you is about your fabulous career. Your job that you’re doing and the freedom to do other things that you want awesome. But just make sure you look at the outcomes you want for your life. What is it I want to experience? What is it I want to feel on a daily basis? You know, how do I want to grow? What do I want to contribute to the world? All those sorts of bigger picture things. A truly what will drive fulfilment in your life. I love you to go and do that have a look at them. And then put a comment down the bottom of the video.
What are the outcomes that you want for your life? I know that mine are freedom to come and go as I please. I the ability to run my business anywhere in the world, which is paramount for me. So I can come and go as I please.
