21 Questions for EXTRAORDINARY Goal Setting

Updated: Jan 11, 2023

Happy New Year!

God has blessed us to stand in 2023 with a fresh slate. Many will set out to make resolutions and set goals, but what exactly are GREAT Goals? How do we make goal setting EXTRAORDINARY?

GREAT Goals are

a) Outcome-focused: Once you understand your WHY (and it's enthusiastic why), you're 90% there!

b) In line with your values: The more a goal aligns with our inner or core values—the EASIER it is to achieve. Yes, we can achieve goals that don't align with our values, but it's harder and less satisfying.

c) Stated in the positive: i.e., I want healthy fingernails rather than I want to stop biting my nails.


  • Specific—so you know exactly what you're trying to achieve

  • Measurable—so you'll know when you've achieved it!

  • Actionable (by you)—so you are in control and can get it done

  • Realistic—so it is achievable

  • Time-Bound—has a deadline

Over the next five days, I will share 21 questions you must ask yourself before making your list, so subscribe to this blog! Tomorrow's topic is "Focusing on the Outcome."

Your Pivot Coach,

Good Day EXTRAORDINARY Goal Setters!

You made it to the last two questions of Extraordinary Goal Setting! If you leaned all the way into this activity, you gained a clear understanding of what it takes to makes goals. This is the roadmap you should follow every time you need to accomplish a goal. Without being intentional, your goals are really wishes without instructions. ~ Lady Jewels

Day #5 - Resources: Get Moving

1. What RESOURCES do you already have to help you achieve your goal? Make a list! eg. things, support from people, contacts, personal qualities, knowledge, skills, money, time etc.

2. What RESOURCES do you NEED to help you achieve your goal? Make a list!

Heyyyy EXTRAORDINARY Goal Setters!

By now, you have focused on your OUTCOME and looked at your VALUES. Today, we will focus on identifying OBSTACLES. No goal has ever been without obstacles. The key to maneuvering THROUGH them is not to stop and get stuck. This is another day of digging deep into your purpose. The process that you are unwilling to commit to is the process that hinders you from reaching your goal. You didn't think it took all this to set a goal, right? Well, this is what we do in this community. We dig deep for maximum impact! You got this! I'm cheering you on! ~ Lady Jewels

Yesterday we focused on OUTCOMES. Today, we will look at VALUES. Have you identified your personal values? Our values influence what we do, how we think, and how we feel about the world around us. When we do or see things that go against our values, we feel sad, bad, or get mad! And when we live life in a way that aligns with our values, we feel great - we're authentic, fulfilled, and happy! If you don't know your personal values, you may have a difficult time answering these questions with clarity. Schedule a Coaching Consultation here.

Let's GO Goal Setters! No vision is accomplished without putting in the work. ~ Lady Jewels
