Follow the prompt: I used Google to find a couple of sources that discuss goal setting/life planning domains. Please use either or both of these sources to discuss what you want your life to be like now and in the future. Process: (1) Pray (ask God for wisdom and ask that God’s will be done and not Satan’s), (2) Realize that this life is finite; but through Jesus, we have eternal life (He has wrestled the power over death away from Satan and now Satan cannot use this power to twist us), (3) Address each goal-setting domain with the understanding that God wants you to enjoy and appreciate His beautiful amazing creation and that He has suggested a path for you to follow (you can choose to follow this Path or not).

However, the goal isnt to have a lot of goals, the objective is to have the right goals and just a few goals that are going to move you forward. By breaking it into nine areas, it gives you a little bit more control over your goals and the effectiveness of them. Lets look at the nine different areas. Spiritual This is that inner part of yourself. Thats that deep need that we all have to be a part of something greater than ourselves, to make a difference in the world, or to make an impact. This is going to be different for everybody. If youre a Christian, let your Christian faith drive how you set goals in this area. For others, who may not be religious or practice a religion, thats okay. Maybe for you, its you want to get out and take more nature hikes or you want to get out and meditate more or just have some more downtime. Whatever feeds that soul part of you, put down some goals. Personal Development This is your mind. Ask yourself this: how are you going to be better at who you are? How are you going to be a better husband, wife, father or mother? What is it that youre going to do to grow yourself? What do you need to learn? What do you need to read? What events do you need to attend? What classes do you need to take? Set some goals for yourself and focus on how am I going to be a better person? What am I going to do to grow myself? Health What are you going to do to take care of this instrument, this tool that you have? What are you going to do to feed yourself correctly? Get the right rest you know so you have more energy, so you can actually accomplish all those things that youre setting out to accomplish? This ones pretty straight forward. I think we all know what we need to do, but we just dont often do it, right? So dont try and set goals that are ridiculous here. This isnt about having six-pack abs. Its about being healthy and feeling good at the end of each year. Romance What are you going to do to bring the romance back into your relationships? There is no relationship that we have while we are on this Earth thats more important than a romantic relationship, than the one with our spouse, the person that we looked at and went this is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. Thats the most important relationship you have, so how are you going to keep the romance and how are you going to have some fun with it? And yes, guys, you can put some goals as it pertains to maybe getting in the sack a little more, but youve got to do something to get there first. I would encourage you to sit down and put some goals together with your partner, with the person youre in that romantic relationship with because its going to make this fun! Its going to make this a whole lot more fun than maybe it would be if you just did it on your own. Family A lot of times people put this category and the family category together, but these two areas need to be broken apart. Your romantic relationship is the most important and if that relationship is healthy, it allows for your family relationship to be healthier. Your relationship with your kids, your relationship with your extended family all hinges on having a first and foremost a healthy romantic relationship. Heres where youre going to put your family goals. Do you want to invest in your kid’s soccer league a little bit more or spend more time coaching? Or do you want to see your extended family, make more trips or pay for them to come out and visit you? You want to have some goals and some things youre working on to improve your family relationships. Business/Career What are you going to do in your business or career thats going to move it forward? This category will probably have the most number of goals. It will probably have more goals than the other areas because its the one area or the one category that deals with your professional life. All the other ones tend to deal more with your personal life, though they may have some bleed over, this is the one that is solely dedicated to your professional life, everything else is to your personal life. So if you add up all the personal categories, they will probably outnumber the goals you have here, but dont feel like oh my gosh, I have six goals for my business and only two for the family does that make me a crappy father? No, it just means that youve got other areas or goals for other areas and that this is just one category for one big area of life. So you want to put your business or your career goals in here. Finances What do you want to achieve financially? Do you want to buy a house? Do you want to increase the amount youre saving this year? Do you want to pay off some debt? Student loans? What are some financial goals you have for yourself? Put those down so you know what youre working towards and again, if youre in a romantic relationship or if you share funds with your spouse, this is something youre probably going to want to work on with them so that youre both onboard and on the same page. Fun and Recreation What are you going to do for fun? Are you going to take vacations? Are you going to join a hockey league? One of our clients, she is a very athletic person. Shes awesome. Shes got so much energy and shes involved in hockey, shes involved in marathons, and thats what she does for fun. When shes not at work, shes out there on the athletic field and so thats how she spends her fun and thats what she does for her recreation. For others, its vacations or weekends away. Its time with friends. Whatever it is for you, put some goals down. Say what do I want to do this year thats going to be fun? Skydiving? Hang-gliding? Surfing? Whatever it is, put it down. Social This is your friendships, this is your relationships outside of family and this is what youre going to do socially. Do you want to spend more time with your friends? Whatever changes you want to make in your social life, put them in this category. http://freshtakeoncontent.com/wheel-of-life-goals/ Zig-Ziglar-Wheel-of-Life-Concept When you look at Ziglars Wheel of Life, you will see that is separated into 7 parts or spokes and each of the parts relates to the 7 areas of your life: Your Personal Life and Social Life: This includes who you spend your time with as well as the things you spend your personal time doing.
