day 6: put your goals out there

Goals at lululemon W. 4th in Vancouver
It’s day 6 of Goal Week! So far, we’ve: looked at what makes a goal, dreamed up our ideal lives, and learned how to write specific and measurable goals. What’s next? Sharing your goals.
why share your goals?
Sharing your goals is an important part of goal-setting. As Carolyn mentioned in her post about goal-setting tips, when you share your goals, you gain an instant support network of people that will hold you accountable. This also leads to conversation around your goals so that you can gain the insight and knowledge you need to achieve them.

how to share your goals
Sharing your goals can be as simple as a conversation with a friend, colleague, or family member. If you created a visual goal board, put it somewhere visible and public so it’s always in front of you. At lululemon, our goals are in our stores, near our desks, and in the hallway of our Store Support Centre, Guest Education Centre, and Distribution Centre.

your mission today
Your goal mission today, if you choose to accept it, is to share a 1, 5, or 10-year goal with someone. If the thought of doing this creates butterflies in your stomach – you’re on the right track! It might not be easy at first to talk about the future and what you want out of your life if you’re not used to it, but it will get better. Ready, set – go get ‘em!
P.S. If you have questions about goal setting, want some tips, or have thoughts/feedback for us, come to our Facebook wall at 4 pm PST tomorrow (Sept. 8th) for Ask a Goal Coacher Live!
