This time of the year you are probably thinking about setting goals for the year or month ahead and wondering what should be on the list of things that you want to achieve in the next year, month or few months ahead. You may also be wondering of ‘How to make a vision board for 2021‘.
Before you create a vision board you need to set some strategic and clear goals for the year ahead. In this blog post we share some ideas that you can use for your own goal setting ideas. Are you ready to begin?
Where do you begin when it comes to goal setting ideas?
When think about my goals I always start with a wheel of life also known as the life balance wheel, to help you understand which areas of your life needs more attention. In order to live a truly happy and fulfilled life you want to create a perfect balance where all areas are working in harmony.
What is a wheel of life?
The wheel of life is often used in coaching (more about it here) and it consist of the core 5 areas that are:
– Life’s purpose and you fulfilling your true personal and spiritual growth
– Self Actualisation that represents your career choices, finance & money
– Creative life that includes your health and fitness and fun & recreation
– Your Social Life, environment and community
– Love life that includes your friends and family as well as your love life
When thinking about setting your goals try and identify the areas where you want more improvements and growth. Let’s break them down one by one when it comes to your goal setting ideas for 2021. More about how to use the wheel of life, read more here.
Goal setting ideas for Life’s Purpose
Life’s purpose is so important, as you go through life you want to feel fulfilled in what you do, and that comes from your personal growth.

Goal setting ideas for self actualisation
I love to see women being fulfilled in business and their career, because that is when we as women truly shine, and show up from a place of confidence.
Are you currently pursuing your passion? Are you in the career path that lights your fire? Do you wake up in the morning motivated and fulfilled?
If not, then what needs to change in order for you to feel 100% aligned? Read more on our blog post ‘Create your dream life – how to align to your higher purpose‘.
Does your finances reflect the value you give and the time that you spend in your career?
If not, maybe you need to value yourself more and look into pricing your services higher. There is no doubt that there are people who would pay way more for what you do, than you currently charge. But do you show up as the ‘go-to authority’ for them? Or are you constantly doubting, discounting and playing small?
Consider setting higher goals, be specific about your financial goals and set yourself timelines. You will feel much more fulfilled when your finances reflect the value that you deliver. Read more about this on our blog ‘Why the world needs you to be rich‘.
Goal setting ideas for creativity & health
Do you spend enough time taking care of yourself and your health? Do you set aside time for you to eat healthy, go outside for a walk or do exercise?
If you want to live a truly balanced life, your health needs to be on top of your goal setting ideas for 2021.
Schedule some time for you to focus on your health and wellbeing, place your workout clothes by your bedside, add reminders in your calendar. So every day you have time set aside to focus on your health.
Also, spend some time doing something fun and creative. Just because you are having fun or doing something different, it doesn’t mean it is not productive.
P.s. If you are enjoying this blog, go ahead and pin this image to your Pinterest board to come back to it later.
In fact more creative ideas for business comes when you are doing something completely unrelated to business. For more health and self-care ideas visit our blog ‘Self-care tips: Creating the life you want that includes the truth of who you are‘.
So what fun activities can you add to your daily routine?
Goal setting ideas for Social Life
There is no doubt that we feel happier and more fulfilled when we surround ourselves with positivity and those we love and care about. Especially during the global pandemic, this has become harder but more important than ever.
When setting your goals for 2021, be intentional about the people you want to surround yourself with, both physically and virtually.
Where physical presence is not possible, schedule the time in your week or a month to catch up with your family or friends. It may be a virtual call, online virtual game, virtual party or just a good heart to heart conversation.
Your relationships are important part of living a truly fulfilled life, so no matter how busy you get, make time for those you love.
Well, for some who may be introverts and social or virtual gatherings may sound not all that appealing, consider doing some volunteering or drop by your neighbours to see if they need something. Doing community work is guaranteed to make you feel much better about yourself.
