What you'll learn

Course details

This course takes a deep dive into the "why," the "what," and the "how" of goal setting. In Part 1, participants define their values and identify their Bedrock Goal and at least one or two Building Goals that are aligned with their values. In Part 2, they break their goals into Specific Activities and identify potential Obstacles to completing them. Then they identify the resources they'll need to pursue, achieve, and measure their results. Finally, in Part 3, they learn how to be purposeful in pursuing and achieving their goals, and learn how to build systems that will allow them to organize and balance activities by providing the feeling of happiness and success.

The course includes an hour and a half of instructional videos, as well as a 35-page workbook complete with quizzes, activities, and goal-setting worksheets to reinforce the material covered.
